Tasty Mexican seafood

Colorful inviting place with some of the best seafood in the city. We love the seafood soup loaded with 6 or 7 different kinds of seafood. The large (grande) can be a meal for two ($15).

Ceviche and shrimp cocktail were delicious. We went for a late lunch and found the staff was eating their lunch also. Not to interested in attending to us. We were hoping for better entrees after reading reviews and were a little disappointed. Probably won't go back.

I love seafood, and I love Mexican, so I was very excited to try this place, and disappointed with the result. They start you with chips and a flight of three salsas, one is simply a bean dip, then you have the conventional pico with a hint of kick, and finally an odd light green sauce that could best be...

The Good: They apparently only have a beer and wine license so their "margaritas" are made from agave wine and were surprisingly good. The appetizer salsa were very good. The Bad: My husband and I were both very disappointed in the food. Most things were deep fried and served with plain white rice and french fries. Very bland. Prices high... More

This place ain't cheap for how casual the atmosphere is, but the food has never disappointed. Get the shrimp aguachile, the spicy seafood soup, or the ceviche tostadas! The also make good GIANT micheladas.

Excellent shrimp cooked in numerous ways. A Mexican seafood restaurant you would ex[ect to find in most Mexican ocean towns. Wonderful mix of patrons.

Santa Fe locals know Mariscos to be one of the city's best go-to restaurants. Though it's adjacent to a strip mall (across the street from another strip mall), the primary-colorful interior, with its chairs and tables adorned with carved and painted birds, creates a festive, friendly atmosphere that's ideal for families and couples alike. Forget "New Mexican." Mariscos is puro... More
