So yummy! Fresh mariscos! The service is better than any restaurant I have been to. We got there right before closing (had no clue) we asked if it was okay and they insisted on us staying to eat. We stayed and they acted like they had just started their shift. Good prices for what you get and there was live... More

Great atmosphere with live traditional music, the best shrimps, fishes, ceviches and traditional desserts in town. I had a Marlin tostada, thai shrimps, a beer, a cold tequila and a capirotada for dessert. Great service! Delicious!

Went to this place on the weekend as we've been looking for a good seafood place in Guadalajara.
