After being disappointed by the pulpo (octopus) at another restaurant, we decided to check out the octopus at El Capitan. We first ordered a plate of gambas al ajillo, which came out of the kitchen almost immediately and were delicious! The pulpo was also good. We shared a bottle of the house white wine, which was delicious. The food came out fast but as only one server was working that Sunday evening, the service got slower as the evening progressed. It wasn't a super cheap meal, but I thought the prices were normal for the meal we ate.

Very expensive . food was good but the pace of the service quite slow. It was fights in the kitchen as well and customers felt uncomfortable.

Don't miss this wonderful little seafood restaurant. My wife and I ate almost every lunch there for a week. The shrimp and eggs and pardon peppers were delicious and the chupitos after meal drink perfectly finished the meal. And although I speak very little Spanish and the owner spoke very little English, he was extremely cordial...and the service was very helpful. Can't wait to go back!!!

We asked in a souvenir shop for a restaurant recommendation, and she steered us to this small seafood place in the old section. This was obviously a place for the locals, even though there was a menu in English. So we did what we usually do, and through a few gestures and a word or two in Spanish we asked them to bring us what they thought we'd like...same for the wine. It wasn't cheap, but it was damn good.
