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.

Lots of local people probably don't eat here because it is located in Seaside and lots of local people just look down their nose on this little town. That means lots of people are missing just the best Mexican food --especially seafood--on the Monterey Peninsular I had a wonderful pulpo (octopus) cerviche tostada topped with a couple of shrimp and...

Walked to the Restaurant from the Embassy Suites. Nice easy walk and we had Paella Mexicana & Mariscada family style. Both dishes were awesome and the kids and I devoured everything. Food quantity was enough for 4 adult appetites and it was seasoned to perfection. We wanted dessert but we couldn't find the room. Don't miss this local gem if... More

We eat here regularly and this little hole in the wall is a gem. The wait staff are very friendly and helpful and don’t mind explaining unfamiliar dishes to the ole gringa! There is also one of these in Soledad, Ca. Breakfast is outstanding and the chilequilles to die for but my favorites are the oxtail dish with a rich... More

We had one of the best lunches in a long while. As the other reviewers say, the location is unpretentious yet lively. It's clear that a lot of the customers are locals from the Mexican and Latino community. My wife and I split a Mariscada, which is a mix of fresh seafood and fish in a deliciuos mildly hot sauce...

This little place was delightful. I was visiting friends in Monterey and we went to Mariscos Puerto Nuevo based on a recommendation they had from a neighbor. When we got there, we were a bit put off by the appearance. But, we "braved it" anyway, and were well rewarded! We started with nachos with beef. Absolutely wonderful, perhaps the best... More

Seafood is their specialty so try something different other than the usual enchiladas, tacos or tamales. Their whole fried fish or a plate of oysters....my wife had a shrimp tostatda that was just excellent...the shrimp were just perfect. The place is not fancy and Seaside is Seaside...not the greatest. The service is fast and friendly.

Fresh, well prepared seafood in a clean family style restaurant. What a nice change from the usual monterey seafood menu.... Instead of the same ol' fish n chips style, think Shrimp cocktail puerto Nuevo style, bacon wrapped prawn, fried fish.... Homemade tortillas and fresh cilantro yum!

Unlike some of the other Mexican resturants in the area this one is squeeky clean. The neighborhood is a bit rough but worth the trip. Good menu with alot of unique things. As another reviewer said it could be easy to miss. Look for the Sportsman Club and you will find it. (The Sportsman Club is quite special and not... More
