We had four wonderful meals over four days in Tamaulipas, but Los Hurricanes topped them all. The three of us had an abundance of seafood including oysters, seafood soup, calamari, crob cocktail, a shrimp entrée, and six alcoholic beverages between us, and we were shocked...at how reasonable the price was, at least compared to comparable quality meals in hometown Oaxaca. Ambiance was inviting, service exquisite, food equally so. We can't wait to return to Tampico! Simply amazing.More

Great place to meet up and dine with friends. Friendly atmosphere. Good food selection - mainly seafood. That's what you come here for. There are apparently 2 outlets of this restaurant in Tampico. Popular with families and others too.

We went to Los Curricanes as a recommendation from a local friend, while on a trip on north east México. The experience was delightful. The waiter knew every dish by memory and the manager came to check constantly. They even treat us with a delicious...dessert as they were so glad about our visit from outside of town and our comments. I definitely would come back without thinking twice about my decision whenever visiting or even passing by Tampico. Superve food and awesome service.More

Javier Martinez, Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of me and my business partner during our visit to the Los Curricanes in Tampico today for lunch. You and your staff were so very accommodating, attentive and kind. The food was outstanding, so...delicious and what a thoughtful gesture to send us the dessert on the house It was not expected and very much appreciated. We had a great expirience and you and your staff helped to make it that way! We will be back soon for sure! Thanks again for all, you have really made an impression I look forward for your opening in CDMX Simona Carneala the Romanian Girl.More

Our daughter and son-in-law invited us to try Los Curricanes on a Sunday after church. For starters, we had a tuna dish, then some broiled prawns. Excellent! Next we tried the "chicharron de pulpo" and finishing with a seafood risotto. Each one was progressively better...than the previous. All were very good. We're going back.More
