Good Mexican Seafood

My wife and I had been wanting to try this place ever since we moved to Santa Fe last year. I must say it is very good for a place so far from an ocean! I'm pretty sure most of the seafood is frozen, not fresh, but it is nonetheless prepared well and tastes as close to fresh as possible.... read more

We eat there twice when in Santa Fe, especially like the whole stuffed fish (trout) baked in tin foil. Their liquor license does not allow for hard liquor, but their agave wine margherita is quite refreshing. Friendly and courteous staff, nice ambiance with the painted chairs and tables. Very reasonable, enjoyable experience.

This seafood restaurant is consistently good and we eat there each time we are in Santa Fe. The ambiance is excellent with a nice family atmosphere. The service is very good, and the prices are moderate..

This is usually our family’s first stop when we come to Santa Fe! We all have favorite dishes that we love so much we never want to try anything different. For me, it’s the Mexican shrimp cocktail and I usually order a “grande” and share it with my grandsons. My husband and son order a couple of dozen raw oysters... More

Great Mexican seafood. Colorful and interesting interior. Much bigger than it looks from outside. Some folks did not like kids coming to tables to sell jewelry but they were adorable and I got a lovely necklace on top of a great meal!

It was great. Reminds me of small locally owned Mexican restaurants. Not like a big chain. The menu was pretty much all some kind of seafood, prepared in a Mexican sytle. In the past, I've avoided this type of food, not thinking it was real Mexican, but this was obviously a mistake after my experience at Mariscos Azul. Don't miss... More

Terrific mariscos of all sorts on the menu. I had shrimps in Vera Cruz sauce and it was as good as my own. Diane had shrimp kabobs and really liked them. Again, impossible to spend over $10-11 dollars for an entree.

This is where I always bring out of town visitors to eat and they always rave about it. All of the shrimp dishes are delicious.

I really fancied seafood and was SO happy to find this place just yards from my motel, the excellent Silver Saddle motel. The staff are very friendly and welcoming; although I was the only non-Latino in the place I felt very welcomed. Service was good; it wasn't rushed, nor did you have to chase them. The food was excellent; I... More
