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

Fiesta Del Mar and its sister in downtown Mountain View (the almost aptly named Fiesta Del Mar Too) both serve good traditional US mexican. You can mix and match your carbohydrate, meat, margarita and salad to your hearts (dis)content. So it's very tasty! The service is also efficient and flexible to your needs, but not exactly heart warming. This is... More

As the name suggest, Fiesta Del Mar specializes in fish-based Mexican. The enchiladas are excellent and are family recipes. One of our favorites is the Enchilada Fiesta Del Mar, which comes as crab and/or shrimp with a very tasty sauce on it. The food is fresh, not too greasy. They also have excellent salsas and chips. There are two of... More

I don't really like Mexican food (as found in the US). I often find it too greasy and not really fresh enough. But, I LOVE this place. I walk here at least once a month to enjoy the shrimp fajitas. They are made with tequila flamed shrimp and tons of super fresh veggies. I always get whole black beans on... More

It's a small place, so you might be waiting a bit on a busy night. Still, the food was good and traditional. There were 5 of us that night and I'll say that not everything was perfect, but some dishes were fabulous. Furthermore, the staff was great, and the chips and salsa delicious.

Stopped here on the way to the Sharks game. Very pleasant suprise. Dining room was packed, but the service was still excellent. My wife and I each had a different combo and they were superb. Service was outstanding. The server could not find Marker's Mark so when I switched to Jack Daniels he poured a double. Much better choice than... More
