A friend recommended this place and so we tried it out. The staff and the interior were lovely. We especially liked the painted chairs and booth backs and it feels like a small place you'd find on the beach in Mexico. The salsa and the greenish looking dip were both excellent and the chips were fresh, which was a great... More

We were tired of the heavy SW meals and this place hit the spot. There are signs for various years stating this is the #1 place in Santa Fe for seafood and I believe it. It is a smallish unassuming place, but don't let that turn you off. I had the ceviche, which is not available in many restaurants and... More

I read the reviews on this place and knew we would like it. When I told my husband that this was great Mexican seafood, he started counting dollar signs. When we pulled into this darling little restaurant, he was surprised. He was even more surprised when the waitstaff brought us chips and three amazing dips; then our incredible main dish.... More

This is a family friendly restaurant favored by locals. Service was friendly and attentive. The menu is extensive with an emphasis on seafood, although there are a few beef, chicken, and vegetarian options. Chips were served with Pico de gallo and a chunky avocado dip. Servings were very generous and the food was delicious.

We ate dinner at Marisco's and enjoyed it completely. The seafood soup, Caldo Vuelve a la Vida was fantastic - I had the small one and it was too much so I took half of it home. For my main course I enjoyed the Camarones de Santa Fe, shrimp on a creamy mushroom sauce which was delicious. My brother-in-law devoured... More

Get the El Mejor to start. This soup is DELICIOUS! All of the senioritas are so sweet. Quick, hot, good service! My first time in Santa Fe and if I ever go back, this restaurant is my FIRST stop!

When a diner from the coast of Massachusetts and Maine says that it's the best seafood in Santa Fe... you'd better listen. This is the first time in my life that I've lived more than two miles from the Atlantic coast. I grew up on seafood. Marisco's waitstaff will tell you where the seafood was caught, when it came in,... More

Marisco's La Playa is one of the most consistent restaurants in Santa Fe. Years of visits have resulted in exactly Zero bad experiences and many, many fine meals. Our most recent visit, a quick family treat dinner was on a busy Saturday night. No problem. The line moved fast, we were seated in a comfy booth and drink orders taken... More
