We highly recommend Maria Baja. It’s a couple minutes walk away from the main restaurant area of Zona Romantica but so worth the short walk.

And you can also have all the food to take away.

OMG these tacos are the best of Japan meets Mexico in a plate
I have the octopus doraditas and it was a delicate tempura battered octopus with local flavors and a Japanese touch, I also had the seared tuna taco and that was to die for.
I’m not sure if the owner cook has formal chef training, but these tacos are a perfect balance of the fresh local seafood prepared with a Japanese touch

Finding this slightly out of the way place is certainly worth the trouble. The pineapple and basil infused water was worth the walk, as well as the availability of beers at the market right next door. Three of us ordered an array of tacos and all were outstanding. My husband ordered a shrimp tostada. His order was completely forgotten. When the rest of us were finished eating, he was served a seviche by the owner. This isn’t something he enjoys. So, good food, but on that day, not great service. The people were very nice, however.

This seafood restaurant offers fresh and high quality ingredients for some amazing tacos, tostada, etc. with super friendly staff. You'll find some staple items and some very unique twists/fusions of traditional dishes. Highly recommend the chicharron aquachile taco if you're up for an adventure. The tuna & mango tostada is likely the best I've had.
