Great taste, great service!

Veracruz style seafood. I tried the shrimp cocktail and it was very tasty but only had a few shrimps. However the red snapper (huachinango) was awesome!

Eating at Villa Rica it's always a great experience. The restaurant is just on the beach. It offers a very good selection of fish, at the right price. During the week it's easy to find a table without a reservation. During the weekend it's maybe better to reserve a table before to show up.

Unquestionably good place for seafood if you're in the Mocambo (hotel...you pass by it) area of Boca del Rio. Huge thatched roof area (across from the former restaurant, now just for banquets). Valet parking. Kids' play area (and donkey rides on beach). Affordable prices for a WIDE range of seafood. We visited on a Saturday, so wait was about half... More

An exciting large scale with great choice of the sea food delicacies cooked to order. Neat and clean, inviting for family and friends - kids friendly as well. Lobster, Shrimps and Salmon dishes were well prepared to our taste!

The best place in town For seafood. The service of the waitress is very good and the dishes are oout of this world. A must in Veracruz. If you don't visit it you weren't in Veracruz.

I went here for a late business lunch. The place is good. The seafood is extremely fresh. You really feel it and appreciate it. Try the fish or the shrimps. The fuente de mariscos is great.

If you love seafood, it's a musthave place to visit in Veracruz. The food is delicious and you can sit outside right at the beach. Oyster cocktails were such a big discovery for me.

Just likethat. I had a coyple of dishes, one was actually a disappointment but the other was so good I actually forgot about the first. I guess you need to know what to order oneach place.

We located this place on Trip Advisor. It was a good meal with a good wine. Would recommend this place if you want a good seafood meal.
