Amazing offering of local seafood dishes. My guests and I actually commented on it being the best meal of our trip so far. Crab, Octopus, Fish, Shrimp all spectacular with flavorful and colorful presentations. Would definitely come back and recommend.

A few blocks off Hidalgo boulevard, we had heard it was very popular, and yes, the place was full, but the wait was about ten minutes. My wife liked very much her jaiba crab dish and a ceviche.

The seafood is stale and usually fried and tasteless. Nice menu presentation, but not all dishes are available. I tried octopus in olive oil and it was flavorless and tough. Warm beer. My opinion is... More
