The only place to experience fresh seafood in Santa Fe...in my humble opinion

It's been a busy month for me. lot's of visitors since I got back from Mexico. It always takes me a while to get over Mexican Food when I return from a trip. Mariscos never disappoints me. It's the only place in Santa Fe that takes me back to latin America on each visit. From ceviche, to... read more

This authentic family-owned Mexican restaurant is such a fun and enjoyable experience. They specialize in seafood, but have all the other traditional and non-traditional Mexican dishes. The extensive menu is in Spanish with translations at the bottom. This was the best fish I had on our 12-day road trip! Mariscos is a must-do!

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.
