“Good Food and Margaritas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

I had oysters for appetizer and they were fresh, sweet and chilled perfectly. My husband had duck empanadas and he enjoyed. We both ordered the fish tacos and shared a side order of plantains...all so delicious, but too much food! Suggestion to do either just appy's or just entrees, eating both are two much. We did have 2 margaritas which were perfect,fresh and not from a mix. Recommend reservations and early dinner, it us a popular place. Will go back here for sure.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Great cocktails and apps. Such a fun vibe, great to go on a date or with friends. All the ceviche's are amazing! So fresh and many layers of flavor. Rice & beans great, pardon peppers, cant really go wrong with anything on the menu. Bar lively and fun, Porron's are a must do!
Also, take-out guacamole and burritos are amazing.

“Unusual delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Corazon del Mar is an unusual find for this island: seafood with a Latin flair. Everything that we have tried there is superb, and the cozy, Latin/Moroccan inspired interior is relaxed and fun. It is tiny, and reservations are recommended. This is one place where I can get a really good caipirinha!

“Comfort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Great menu. Unique for Nantucket. Fun and relaxing. Civeche was fresh and great. Carnitas were filling and well made. Service was attentive without overdoing it.

“Prices rise while quality does not”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

I had a pretty disappointing meal at CDM earlier this month. I have eaten there probably 20 times in the past three years and there seems to be a general slide toward lower food and staff quality while the prices remain among the highest on the island.

The meals were all pretty good, and maybe it's just me, but there seems to be a clear trend toward lowering food costs by substituting more and more rice and beans with less and less protein. The fish tacos entree now comes with two small tacos each containing one small stick of fish. If it were not for the plentiful rice and beans, i would consider this a tapas plate.

Overall, the food was pretty good, but 2 entrees, one appetizer and 2 margaritas ran well over $100 and left us feeling still a little hungry.
