My emphasis is food, prepared and presented as it would be at a local home. Having visited restaurants and homes in Veracruz for twenty years, I can say this is it. In fact, friends kid me about paying the restaurant "when we have the same thing at home." Fortunately, I have both. I have been to El Bayo numerous times, alone, with family, and with friends. The restaurant became one of my primary destinations in all Mexico when local people directed me there years ago.
Not having Arroz a la Tumbada at El Bayo would be like not going to Veracruz! That is my minimum. If I'm in in the city long enough, I might have something different on a second visit.
Again, the emphasis is food, the Veracruz way. If you want a fancy or "upscale" experience, or, especially, if you are uncomfortable with seafood presentations that may be new to you, don't go.
Authentic food; excellent value (Dallas has the same Arroz a la Tumbada at $US 18 a plate!)
