Neighborhood Mexican

Across from a Taco Bell at Shoreline and Middlefield in Mountain View. Basic, but fresh Mexican food. Appears to be a long running family establishment serving families and office workers in the surrounding neighborhood. Local award winner.

I chanced upon the Fiesta Del Mar just because it was close to Google's offices, and it is a great find: they serve a mean Mexican. (I did have to ask for hotter sauces, but they did have them... And I do like my spices). Service was courteous, if a bit slow. Place is very accessible - in particular, it... More

I work in the area and my husband and I met for lunch. Decided to try this place. It wasn't very busy, but service was very slow. The food was not good at all, I had a burrito and it wasn't very good, asked for some chopped jalapeños to spice it up and the guy brings big pieces that I... More

My husband usually likes to try new things, but at this restaurant he *always* orders the chicken mole. Best mole sauce, ever for hi. They also have the best sangria - secret ingredient - best we have ever had! The waiter are very friendly. Good food!! What more can I say!

We pass by many many Mexican food places between our place in Menlo Park and Fiesta del Mar, which is conveniently just off 101 in Mountain View. I highly recommend you visit the wonderful staff for amazing Mexican food. Camarones (shrimp) dishes are top of the list. My favorites are Camarones Ardientes and Camarones Alex. Don't miss the fabulous chile... More

We have been coming here for 20 years. All items on the menu are superb......tortilla soup (best ever), the mole....top rate, and the Encocado chicken....an old family recipe. The margaritas Are the best on the planet!

I have been coming to this restaurant almost weekly for almost 20 years. With a name like Party of the Sea, you can guess that they specialize with fish and seafood dinners, but they have the rest of the Mexican recipe book. My favorite is their Mole Poblano dishes, which is an amazing brown sauce made with chiles and chocolate,... More

It's rare to find a Mexican restaurant with both good food and margaritas but FDM nails it. There are many great dishes but shrimp Alex is a favorite.

Great Mexican food and a fun place too. A great chili relleno served in a non-traditional way; no batter. I bowl with a plain green chili stuffed wit cheese swimming in a great red sauce. Try it-you'll like it! Delicious standard fare plus some specialities you won't find anywhere else. And all at reasonable prices. Baby friendly. Outside patio so... More

I used to live within walking distance and my husband and I would go there about once a week. I fell in love with their burrito, but my husband like the Shrimp Charlie. The food was consistently excellent and the staff were great. We got a lot of food for our money, as well. Disclaimer: we moved in 2009
