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

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

There are many delicious dishes to choose from that are reasonably priced. My elderly mom is happy with every shrimp plate on their menu. The service is great. Just go.

Great food and service, fresh seafood, feels like you're in Mexico (just ignore that it's in a strip mall).

I was born and raised on the left coast and traveled extensively. poorly prepared. Marisco's version of seafood is ordinary at best and poorly prepared most of the time. For instance, it does not compare with fish tacos in any number of San Diego restaurants or taco stands. My rule: no seafood when landlocked (unless they fly it in fresh!).
