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!

The menu may be somewhat limited but that's perfect - what they do do, they do well! We got some fish and shrimp tacos. Also tried the potato ones. All were very good!

Delicious, between the different salsas and golden crisp on the fried fish/shrimp you can't go wrong. Which the only way you could is if you don't get one of each!

I didn't know what to expect for fish tacos but when we entered the staff was very cordial. The menu had three items on it, Fish Tacos, Shrimp Tacos and a Drink. We ordered one of each and they were okay. It was battered pieces of fish and battered shrimp. No veggies or anything else. The condiment counter had a... More
