We were a party of four adults. We ordered off the a la carte menu selections at the suggestion of my brother. This ended up being plenty of food. Chips and salsa are complimentary. My husband tried the beef tongue tacos for the 1st time and I tried a bite too only because it looked liked chopped bits of meat... More

This small restaurant is often frequented by hispanic families, which is a good sign that the food is authentically Mexican. I love everything on their menu! I just with they served margaritas.

This is a family run restaurant. As soon as you walk in, you can tell there are a lot of locals and a lot of regulars - a great sign in my book. The food was fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced (you get a very generous main dish for what you'd pay for an appetizer at cannery row). The restaurant... More

Service was slow! The food was not authentic! Restrooms were dirty!. Expected more from this place but everything seemed like it was from a can! Worst experience from our trip! And it was over priced!

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised when we ate here a couple of weeks ago. There was a line to get in, but it moved quickly. First the waitress brought homemade tortilla chips and salsa which were very yummy. We ordered the shrimp fajita's. It was enough for 2 people to share. It came with rice, beans, and tortillas...

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside it's a pearl. We had enchiladas, fajitas, and burritos. We were all satisfied. My fajita came with everything including refried beans, rice, guacamole, corn tortillas and sour cream. I'm one who likes to mix everything in one plate and mine was delicious. They give you chips and salsa, and... More

Wow! A lot of fresh shrimp grilled with onions and tomatoes (I'm not a pepper fan) with a nice not too spicy seasoning. Great guacamole. Very good service. Excellent value. Well worth a trip. You won't leave hungry!

This was authentic Mexican seafood at a good price, in an industrial area, but well worth finding.. The service was attentive. The shrimp were big.

When I am in the Monterey area I normally go to Watsonville to eat at Jallisco’s Mexican restaurant which has got excellent Mexican food. This time my family brought me to a local restaurant in Seaside, Mariscos Puerto Nuevo. This is absolutely some of the best Mexican food I had outside of Mexico. I had one of their gigantic burritos,... More

One of my favorite Mexican joints in the area. Not the best ambiance so recommend take out which is I think all we've ever done with the exception of my first time going here with old co workers. I usually get the combo plate with two shrimp tacos and chips and guacamole. If I am hungover this is usually my... More
