Excellent place. Food is good reasonably priced. A lot to choose from the menu. Teenage kids enjoyed going there. Staff is super friendly. Will continue being a loyal customer.

We had two dishes, neither good. Fish breaded and fried. I would never eat this at home. Dishes reminded me of food in Mexico 30 years ago. I suggest you eat elsewhere.

They bring out a large platter of tapas stuff. Like cucumbers and onions and such. We ate at the one just off the malecon. Everything was good.

Nothing fancy, just very good, quite reasonable Mexican food. We went there 2-3 times during our 10 day stay. Note that the bigger location, a block away from the Marina, is a lot better than their “more touristy” location on the Malacon
