Good Seafood.

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

We are on a trip primarily to see family, heard about this place, and gave it a try. It was a pleasant surprise in every way. It is clean and pleasantly decorated, the service was friendly and very professional, the servings enormous, and the food very, very good. And it is really very inexpensive. If we lived here we would... More

This was recommended by the hotel, but when we arrived I had my doubts. They were misplaced. Great service and authentic Mexican food. Fish was great and I don't like fish too much. Go for it!

A place the locals frequent. Good food in a friendly atmosphere. But avoid the artificially flavored margaritas which also seem to have little if any alcohol. Miriscada -- a fajita-like sizzling platter of shrimp, scallops, calimari, mussels and clams and a wonderful piece of breaded and fried fish is delicious.
