“Really enjoyed it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

This is a Mexican seafood restaurant that has a friendly and casual ambiance. Various kinds of fish tacos, as well as several kinds of ceviche. We got the "Tostada Special" on the appetizer menu. It had 5 different kinds of ceviche--salmon, tuna, scallops, shrimp, whitefish on tostadas and was big enough for us to share as a meal for two. Also, at the day/time we went, the margaritas were on special for only $2, and they were good!
We'll be back

“Something Different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Found this place some how on facebook. So, instead of my usual after church I decided to take the hike northwards. At first it wasn't very busy but things picked up. I had the filet veracruz style. It came out steaming hot. Only disappointment was the frozen margarita. It was too frozen so I had to let it melt to enjoy. But, it's a reasonable priced!

“Very good, tasty and fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

Service was excellent. The menu is not Texmex. It is more of a traditional pacific coast style with fresh seafood. The food tasted great and the portions were good. It can be quite spicy but not in an overpowering way.

The stuffed shrimp jalepenos appetizer was good, but the shrimp were quite small. We also tried the shrimp and the seafood empanadas and both were excellent.

For our meal I had the sliced octopus and my wife had the shrimp diabla. Both were terrific and of course the diabla was very spicy hot.
.
After dining I didn't have the full of greasy food feeling that I sometimes have after eating at traditional Texmex restaurants.
