This is a great place with very fresh sea food!  It is very clean, staff is great and did I mention we had great fresh sea food.  We had sting ray, octopus and ceviche.  The owners brother also owns a bot that we did some whale watching.

First off, the location is in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, not PV. This is a basic, no frills seafood restaurant with fresh fish and friendly staff. The friendly owner spoke highly of the fish stew and fish ball soup. Unfortunately we were not hungry enough for appetizers. My friend ordered the Manta Ray fish tacos prepared two ways, spicy and...
