The best shrimp fajitas ever

Wow! A lot of fresh shrimp grilled with onions and tomatoes (I'm not a pepper fan) with a nice not too spicy seasoning. Great guacamole. Very good service. Excellent value. Well worth a trip. You won't leave hungry!

This was authentic Mexican seafood at a good price, in an industrial area, but well worth finding.. The service was attentive. The shrimp were big.

When I am in the Monterey area I normally go to Watsonville to eat at Jallisco’s Mexican restaurant which has got excellent Mexican food. This time my family brought me to a local restaurant in Seaside, Mariscos Puerto Nuevo. This is absolutely some of the best Mexican food I had outside of Mexico. I had one of their gigantic burritos,... More

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 usually my... 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.
