Tasty Mexican seafood

Colorful inviting place with some of the best seafood in the city. We love the seafood soup loaded with 6 or 7 different kinds of seafood. The large (grande) can be a meal for two ($15).

Very good food with great service with a smile. You will love the art work displayed in the chairs and table. Not likely to see many places.

This place ain't cheap for how casual the atmosphere is, but the food has never disappointed. Get the shrimp aguachile, the spicy seafood soup, or the ceviche tostadas! The also make good GIANT micheladas.
