We tried this place on a whim after googling seafood restaurants. It was not too far from the hotel and fit the bill. The waitress spoke very limited English and didn't understand much of it either. It's a good place to practice your Spanish. I ended up having the cabrito instead of fish and my BF had the carnitas. Both... More

It's located on the Westside of San Antonio, but don't let this fool you. It is very safe and easy to get in and out. They serve all kinds of fish plates. My favorite is the Veracruzana. I like it because it's grilled and is healthy. It does come with French fries and two scoops of rice along with lettuce... More

Servers were great. Food very good if not much portion wise. Iced tea was fantastic. Tried the borracho shrimp. Excellent salsa. A bit hole in the wall-ish but would go again

I waited over an hour for my food, the fish wasn't cooked right, when I asked what the hold up on my food was the manager rosy Gonzales was extremely rude! She basically just told me to keep waiting and made rude gestures at me. This was probably the worst restaurant experience I've had

Off the beaten path in the Prospect Hill neighborhood of San Antonio. You wouldn't ever stop unless you've already been told how great this restaurant is. Try the ceviche, whole fish, or any of the shrimp dishes. I had the shrimp and octopus ceviche and bacon wrapped shrimp. Authentic food, excellent service, and great atmosphere.

You must try their whole fish. I had it grilled. It was quite good and at a fantastic value. Friendly service.
