If you are looking for a fancy atmosphere with white tablecloths and fine silverware then go elsewhere. If you are looking for the best, freshest seafood in South Padre Island then this is the place. Laid-back casual dining with extraordinary Ceviche. Highly recommend.

Read a review on Los Tortugo’s so decided to give it a try. Pleasantly surprised. Wonderful seafood & very friendly service. Ceviche was excellent! Very unassuming & reasonably priced. Highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner.

Seafood market is on the main floor. Upstairs of this old house is the dining room. You'll have to take the stairs. Shrimp tacos had so many shrimp on them, that it was not possible to finish all four tacos. Chips are South Padre... looks...More

I would have liked to fully praise food and service but the extra side salad (or better lettuce leave with 2 small onion and tomato pieces) was the most expensive I have ever had. Trying to negotiate the price didn't help. Since I hated to...More
