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.

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

I liked it so much I tried both their locations. Unpretentious atmosphere, great service, wonderfull food, fair prices. You can enjoy the seviche tostada with chips and several types of salsa for @ $5. What a deal. A full meal is between $12-$15 but everything I saw looking worth every cent.

I ate Shrimp Veracruz, every bit. My wife ate a dish with shrimp, octopus, scallops, bacon and beef. She thoroughly enjoyed her meal.

Every time we are in Santa Fe we eat at Mariscos at least once & it's ALWAYS outstanding ! We have also taken friends & family -all have agreed that it's wonderful. If there was a higher rating than Excellent - they'd get it from our family. Great !!!

Get the ceviche tostadas and be very happy. Also the best raw oysters, yes, in the desert ! Not expensive. Only draw back, no tequila.

We went for lunch. I had the combo seafood plate and my husband had the chopped meat/seafood dish (don't remember the Mexican name, but reminded us of Machaca) The food was excellent! The service was relaxing but not slow. We will absolutely go back to this special local restaurant.
