If you go to San Salvador, this is a place you have to visit. Seafood is well prepared and served, always full with local people and the classical environment that invites you to return. At night they have karaoke and the place turns into a fun and entertaining site.

This is a historical place to eat seafood in El Salvador. They have one of the best shrimp pizzas i have ever taste.

The food is great! Ceviches are their specialty but be sure to order their appetizers! The "arañitas", washimis and "volcan de mariscos" are amazing. The down side is that service is slow. Worth the wait though.

Mr Beto Ferreiro started making ceviches some 50 yrs ago and we are glad that his descendants have kept up his recipes.

Great place to try the best of El Salvador's sea food! Don't miss the ship Pizza too! La Hola is a traditional sea food food in our country, and has won a great reputation for the quality of their food. The pricing is a little bit high, but you will have a great time, and went regret you're visit.

Obviously, sea-side location is best although Col. Escalon is excellent within city limit. Prices $8-15
