The best seafood place in Veracruz. The "Vuelve a la vida" coctel is very, very good tasting. The "green tuna ceviche" is also very good. And the "pulpo al carbón " is great to. We had a table on the beach. With excellent service.

An open-air restaurant (a giant palapa) with access to the beach and play area for kids. Live music on weekends. The food is excellent (try the cream of oyster soup and the camarones fiesta), and the service is perfect.

This is very popular restaurant with locals as well as tourists. It is quite a large restaurant overlooking the beach and specialises in seafood. The food is excellent and reasonably priced, although not one of the cheapest, but good value for money. The staff are very friendly and the service is excellent. Have visited Veracruz/Boca del Rio many times and... More

Came for the second time-18 years later; expectations met. The sea bass iwas great, view superb, beach breeze soothing. Only but is that crew is under extreme stress due to the high demand. Other than that, a must if you are in town, no wonder is number two.

This restaurant has really given us some mixed feelings. On the one hand the location (view of the beach) is beautiful, the service is quite o.k. and the dishes are tasty (Ceviche, Manos de Cangrejo,Tostado de Mariscos, Arroz tumbado, Robalo and Langostinos Chili Ajo, Langostinos Mojo Ajo). But someone should tell them that the food should not swim in oil.... More

Everything was perfect. We had a table right on the beach. The food was amazing, especially the tuna ceviche. Great wine menu. The service was great. Not one complaint.

It's one of the nicest places to eat seafood at Veracruz, waitress are dress up with traditional suits and they maintain a festive mood; it's located at the beach so you can walk at the sand while you wait for your food. It's a little expensive but the food is worthy.

Thank Luis Rubén E
