“Sinaloa-style seafood with style”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

This restaurant serves very tasty and well-prepared seafood in a Sinaloan style. It is not very fancy, but serves tasty food in a pleasant environment. I have been many times over the past five years and have never been disappointed. The wait staff are excellent, courteous and attentive. In my opinion the best dishes are the fish fillet culichi (white fish fillet in a creamy poblano sauce) and the tacos surtidos (mixed seafood tacos). The prawns are also always well prepared. They serve you with a small complimentary jar of prawn caldo , which is seriously tasty (and fiery too!)

This restaurant has two branches. The branch on Vincente Guererro is smaller and not so appropriate for big groups, but they will always do their best to accommodate you. They have another branch on Av San Diego which is much larger and more elegant, and which at weekends has a room with childcarers (niñeras) so if you have small kids it is great, they can wander off and play safely, they have clothes for dressing up and drawing material and they are always being watched, while you can relax and enjoy a peaceful meal.

This restaurant comes highly recommended for food and service quality and if you are in the San diego branch, for elegance and family convenience too.
