Let me start by stating I have eaten here three times. Each time was excellent. I always get the fish of the day fried whole. This time it was a snapper and was cooked to perfection. My mom and wife both had shrimp and our guest had coconut shrimp. for about 7 dollars I had a fish, rice and beans and French fries. Great Deal. The beer was co.d and the guacamole was delicious. This is not a fancy place but right in town where all the fishing boats come in. The added teat is watching the fiwhermen fillet thier catches or in today's case cut up the lobsters. You can't go wrong here

This place is just like Minino's. Casual beach dining (toes in the sand) on plastic tables. You eat really fresh seafood. We thought the cooking of the fish and shrimp was better here than Minino's but liked the sides better there.

We stumbled upon Velazquez due to poor service at Brisas down the street. While the plastic tables and chairs on the beach don't scream top notch, Velazquez makes up for it in the food. The best coconut shrimp I have ever had and whole tikin xic fish was amazing. Super cheap as our dinner with a couple drinks was 22 USD. Wish we would have discovered it sooner.

We were on a private snorkeling boat and asked our guide where he eats fresh fish on the Island. He recommended Velazquez. We ate there three times after the recommendation. The fish was fresh caught that day from the local fishermen. Moist, flakey and tasty. Also the chicken fajitas were very good. Right on the beach gives a wonderful view in the day or the evening as the sun it setting. The owner was attentive, informative and cooked out fish perfectly. We will be back!
