We were recommended this restaurant for its fish menu and were pretty disappointed. None of the fish dishes tasted really fresh. It's more of a bar, with a long bar table and blue lights and VERY loud music. Definitely not for the over 40s! its very centrally located though and drinks are good.

Ate here for dinner and service and food were impeccable. Ceviche of tuna was flavourful. Had the octopus and shrimp risotto in squid ink and the flavors were marvelous and the rice perfectly cooked. Service was attentive and I enjoyed it very much. Would definitely recommend for an evening out.reasonable prices and great atmosphere.

My husband had the Salmon - he is a salmon lover and very picky about fish dishes. Verdict: EXCELLENT! HIs dish was beautifully presented and cooked and he loved it. I had shrimp tacos (which wee very good) as I wanted to leave room for the flan. I was not disappointed - the flan was the best I have ever... More

Tried the octopus main dish and the Aguaschiles with tuna and the ones with shrimp. Outstanding! Margaritas al tamarindo. Outstanding. I grew up on the Italian coast, and I felt just just at home. Also, good lounge ambience with ocean theme. Want to go back!

This is a low key, high end fish and seafood destination - communal tables and several TV's. You're here for the fish and the TV's

Been here often but tonight a cockroach appeared on our table. We mentioned this to staff and they promised action would be taken. Menu is diverse, we had barbecued octopus and barbecued shrimp and mixed seafood tacos.

Cold, dark, blue-lit atmosphere. Thumping synthesized New-Age music. The food is abundant and not-bad, but the prices are near US levels. Some cutsey add-ons, one of which--tortilla chips served with a half avocado--is inspired. Staff is pleasant, but begged for a tip before one was offered. Maybe there is a constituency for this kind of place in SMA. New York... More

We have eaten here twice. They have some interesting fish dishes but their menu is a bit pricey and one of the two visits we felt it was more a place to be seen rather than to eat.

The restaurant is more of a bar with smokers.The salmon was rough,with the salmon was something like dried paper; I asked what it was and the waiter said spinach! uneatable. The price was higher than some the BETTER restaurants.

There is not much Mexican atmosphere as this restaurant feels like it could be anywhere & had loud music blaring. A fish soup is presented as a starter but smelled so fishy that we decided not to take the risk. The best thing ordered was the bacon wrapped shrimp but other entrees were just average.
