Stumbled upon this place by accident, but glad I did. It looks a little sketchy from the outside, but I find those are the kind of places that often have great Mexican food! Parking was easy to find on the street nearby. This place does fish tacos. The price was good. I had two fish tacos, a potato taco, and... More

Wish I was there now! Fantastic fish tacos! It's small but not too small. Great sides/sauce counter. Outside seating makes for a cool lunch stop.

I'm not sure how this place has high ratings. The place was not cleaned. There are only 3 items on the menu: fish, shrimp and something else. They serve your tacos with just your meat on a tortilla. They have a very DIRTY buffet line filled with salsas and lettuce. The lettuce was in a hung bowl and I had... More

I would say the name lives up to the food. The fish and shrimp taco is all you can pretty much get and to be honest it's all you need

My boyfriend loved this place when he lived in LA and brought me there on our trip. I was joking about the name before we got there but this place is not a joke. We got the fish tacos and the papas tacos and they were both amazing. The avocado salsa brought the tacos to another level of heavenliness. Quick... More

I had one fish taco and one shrimp taco. The hot mango salsa with the shrimp taco was heavenly. The avocado salsa with the fish taco was scrumptious. Simple, small little place. The salsas are awesome, cabbage available to add to the tacos - go there with a nice appetite and enjoy yourselves!

Indeed the best fish taco in Ensenada and possibly the best fish taco in LA. Cute little place where you can eat fish taco's and other grub for almost nothing. Great variety of salsa's. Definitely worth the detour.

Great fish tacos. Really good shrimp tacos as well. Simple menu, but love the focus on quality over quantity. Best fish tacos in LA!
