One of my favorite Mexican joints in the area. Not the best ambiance so recommend take out which is I think all we've ever done with the exception of my first time going here with old co workers. I usually get the combo plate with two shrimp tacos and chips and guacamole. If I am hungover this is... read more

I used to live in the area and would seriously go here about three times a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is always fresh, and the seafood is absolutely delicious! The prices are beyond resonable and one can eat like a king for about $15. Make sure to try the Chavera or Chabela, which I don't believe... More

The food here is very delicious. We come here every time we're in town. We've ordered their carne asada plate which of course comes with carne asada, a salad, French fries, homemade ranch and sautéed peppers. I give the food a 10 out of 10. I wish the restaurant itself was the same. Located next to a bar and very... More

We came here a few years ago and then today. Still good quality food and large servings. Fresh seafood and good service. A pleasant experience once again!

My wife had Menudo which was good, I had Huevos Rancheros which was about average at best. Prices were good.

Great family feel and great tasting food. We always see folks getting real Mexican dishes. With the big windows providing lots of light, and the friendly service to compliment the food, it's a great way to start the day. We've had dinner there too, but the portions are so grand, we have to share a meal, and even then it's... More

I highly recommend the Especial Puerto Nuevo ($13.99) with fish, shrimp, scallops, and octopus in a Ranchero sauce. The octopus in this dish is some of the best I've ever had. A nearby table ordered ceviche and I'll be back for that. A very casual place with great prices and authentic Mexican seafood dishes. Oh, and great friendly service, too.

Thank you Trip Advisor. I would have never found this place. VERY casual, a little quirky, but the food was awesome. Seafood with zing. Not a lot of atmosphere, but if you are hungry and looking for good food, this is it.

Food and service were very good. Decent prices. They serve a lot of seafood so the place smelled very fishy. Also served my beer with a salted shrimp on top of the can which was a little weird.

This has become a go-to spot for quality Mexican food on the Peninsula. It is way above the normal standard for this area, on a par with the better places in San Jose or Southern California. What is the most important thing with seafood? It has to be extremely fresh, with options that don't always mean soaking up a lot... More
