Fabulous Oaxacan cuisine. Gets great reviews - and deserves them! The place is usually packed - especially on weekends... go early. Some of the freshest and most authentic Mexican seafood dishes anywhere - at very reasonable prices. Anything with fish, shrimp, squid is great. They will even tell you what is best that day. Wish we could have gone here... More

We tried to eat here on Saturday Jan 28 and they closed at 8pm! It was supposed to be the best place for seafood in Huatulco. If that is true they seriously need to extend their hours. So weird!

Excellent food, and service. Very reasonable prices. We both had shrimp dinners. There were 10 shrimps on each plate, and we had 2 beers each. The total bill was $390 pesos and they gave a 19 to 1 exchange, current rate. We went for lobster and they didn't have it but we were definitely NOT disappointed. We would definitely go... More

We ate here on March 12, Sunday night. It Was very busy! We shared our table with a very nice couple from Calgary. I had Mexican style shrimp, and my S.O. had a grilled fish I think. Service was very good. While the food was tasty, I wouldn't say it wowed me. I actually found the food all over Huatulco... More

Excellent seafood, cold beer, clean washrooms and great people! The service was Fantastic in an authentic Mexican restaurant. Not one complaint from the table or surrounding tables. We were a group of 6 that walked in off the street and they made it seem effortless. Ask anyone in town and they will tell you the same. A must... nothing more... More

A family run business for 25 years. Great seafood at good prices. About 2 blocks off the town square in LaCrucacit. Opens from 1 PM to 8PM. Lots of locals so you know the foods good.

We were here in early December, we went because of the numerous good reviews on Trip Advisor, Google and others. Everyone is right, this is a great place, friendly attentive staff, they seem to have a family vibe, our server spoke English which was helpful, he made recommendations and he was not wrong. I had their featured specialty a fish... More
