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. I had a fish dish that included carbonized capers, that reminded me of burnt matches and tasted like they were precisely that.... More

As an east coaster of Canada, I am one of the biggest seafood critics whenever I travel. Being my first Curricanes experience, I had high expectations after seeing such positive reviews and word of mouth from family local to the region. The meal not only lived up to my expectations, it surpassed them! The Jaiba Rellena and Tostada de Trucha... More

The restaurant offers local seafood cuisine with very good taste, there are other god restaurants in Tampico, but this one beats them for their quality and ambiance. It is not cheap, but it isn't expensive, maybe a little overpriced than average but worth it

I have eaten at this restaurant once for curiosity following the crowd other instances because of social occasions. My experience overall is poor to average. 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

I have been several times to this great restaurant, and it just gets better and better. Now there is a new location, so the problem of getting a place was solved. The food is terrific, shrimps, octopus, fish, desserts, etc.. There is a wide selection of beers and wine, also express and cappuccino coffee. If you visit Tampico, definitively try... More

I've travel to a lot of places and tried so many seafood restaurants and this place continues in the top 3 of my list. I've tried almost everything in the menu, never been disappointed. Great fresh seafood, even if you request especial needs like gluten free or change stuff in my plate. Really nice and great service. But of course... More
