So glad we went here for lunch! The ceviche was delicious (both the octopus and the fish one)! Portions are very generous as well! I highly recommend you make a stop here :)

Great local place close to the plaza. Cantina style restaurant. We had the Cajun fish which came with salad, rice, veggies and tortillas. We paid 180 pesos for 2. They had plenty of other options which were also cheaper. Good food, good value.

Very fresh and generous servings of ceviche. Not a fancy place by any means and that is A O K. We are very glad we tried it! :)

The place doesn't look like much, but several friends recommended it for a quick lunch. It's always very crowded with the local lunch crowd. They serve a variety of fish, shrimp, cerviche dishes with salads and some other simple sides. The fried grouper is excellent.

Had a great lunch here. Shrimp fajitas and octopus ceviche. Beth excellent and fresh tasting. Restaurant looks a bit shabby but we recommend looking past that! Very well priced for seafood and popular with locals.

Good for fish lunch. I had lunch there twice and it was quite reasonable too. It is not open for dinner.

Marlin Azul is a busy seafood restaurant. It had quick service and the food was fresh. This isn't fine dining but if you want some fresh seafood with no frills this is the place. We had octopus tostadas which were the best I've had. Also...More

There was a good range of seafood on offer. We had the filete mexicana, coctel de camarones and sopa de pescado. The coctel was a little plain but very fresh. The service was very fast.

Fresh / delicious seafood, very affordable, friendly non-pretentious staff, what more could you ask for? Perfect place for lunch in a casual setting. Should be rated much higher.

This restaurant doesn't looks nice by first look but it's really worth a visit. I visit it twice because it was so good (Oktopus Tacos) the first time. Second time I had the cerviche. Absolutely lovely and really fresh!

All these bar style restaurant cafes are open Monday to Saturday lunchtime only. I did notice that it was still open a 6pm on my visit but do not expect them to open much later than that.
