This is the best Mexican seafood I have ever eaten! The menu was varied and it was hard to choose because it all sounded so good. The service was excellent! The all day drink special for the day was wine, my favorite, and it was 3.00 for a well poured glass of very nice Merlot. The kids and my sister... More

We were told that this was a Mexican restraurant but you also can get sea food. But after looking at the menu the new York steak looked better, and it was great, the taste was out of this world very very tasty.

And a good waiter; but the food was average. On taking our first bite my husband and I looked at each other and both said "salty", which did not make up for the blandness of the red and green chile. The chicken in the enchiladas had a mushy consistency, like it had been simmering all day and was also flavorless.

Their shrimp enchiladas are the best! Luncheon specials, super breakfasts, happy hour specials on food. You can't go wrong here. Family run family restaurant. I love them. Musicians on weekends.

Mexican cuisine with seafood specialties, AWESOME! We love Mexican food but this was so delicious. Wish this wasn't a two day trip from home!

I had a chicken burrito and left stuffed! There was a strolling musician providing beautiful music while I dined.

The flaming oysters con camaron are addicting you must try them! The bartender on Monday Tuesday and Thursday nights makes the perfect Micheladas..and I recommend you try platio Mexicano it's not on the menu.. Kinda a secret delicious plate, I really love everything I have ever tried here. Never been disappointed one of my favorite places to eat!

We eat here as often as we can. They have excellent Mexican seafood dishes and Ceviche. They have light and dark Mexican beer on tap. They now have a new menu with even better selections. Lots of local people eat here and it is very well thought of by many local customers.

We had the combo fajitas shared. More than enough food for 2. Service was excellent and Margs were ok. If you have a room key from the hotels they give you the first marg free however it only one per table.

There are naturally a lot of 'New Mexico Style' restaurants in Albuquerque, and this is one of them. The food was pretty typical of the genre, and as such was good. Not complaining, nothing was wrong, not over-cooked, not under-cooked, and it was tasty. But it was not 'spectacular' either. That being said, the staff and service more than made... More
