“Great place to eat”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

The variety of seafood is fresh. The resturant is right across the street from the beach. The service is fast and the staff are friendly. The orange juice tasted amazing freshly squeeze. The place seems cleaned.

“From the sea to the table”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is simple and looks not very nice. But the fish is fresh and tasty. We had Camotillo, a locsl fish eating only shrimps. It was delicious. 15 USD. The desert was fine too. Good service. The place is very well known from businessmen. Would go back. It's opposite to the fishmarket. Fresh products guaranted!

“Fresh local seafood dishes”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has been here forever and has a great reputation. The ceviche is wonderful as are all their dishes. It gets quite busy at lunch so try not to visit at 1:00 as a table may be hard to find. The restaurant s located on the waterfront across the highway, so the atmosphere is local and just ok but the food and activity inside makes up for it.

“So delicious!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We ate here many times during our trip to Manta. They served the best Shrimp and Rice we had on our entire trip. The serving was large enough for two people. We always had the same server and he was great! Loved this place.

“Our favorite place for ceviche!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This place is always packed with local business people for lunch, and the reason is that the food is yummy. The service is also fast and friendly and our waiter spoke English (most don't here).

This place is just across the street from the fresh fish market in Tarqui, rather than in the tourist area. Definitely worth the $1 cab ride to get there!
