I have lived in the area all my life and just got around to trying this restaurant last night - WOW! Very interesting and unique menu. Everything everyone ordered was delicious. They have Taco Tuesdays, so I ordered two fish tacos baja-style (crispy). They were huge. I could only finish one (although that's probably because I ate way too many chips with their great salsa!). Another person ordered the very spicy Shrimp Diablo which is made with habaneros. Habanero chiles are tricky to cook with because they are so hot. The chef has managed to use the chiles in a way that creates the perfect amount of heat, so as to not overpower the other flavors of the dish. Place the shrimp and vegetables in a flour tortilla (which comes with the entrée) and it was amazing. They also serve very large drink glasses of water, Coke, etc. which is nice because you don't need to keep asking for more. I am definitely going back.

Just had a great Mexican meal at the Yucatan Grill in Seal Beach. Tucked away in a triangular strip mall-style block of restaurants just south of 5th St. on Pacific Coast Highway, it is not easily seen from PCH, even through the street address is a PCH address. But keep looking, it's worth the search.

Decor is colorful, size is on the smaller side, and atmosphere is casual and relaxed, fitting into the beach scene. Prices are very reasonable, and the menu offers an array of seafood fillings, such as crab and lobster, in addition to traditional fillings in the Mexican dishes. My Lobster Enchilada with black beans and their own special style of rice was delicious! They also specialize in Caribbean cuisine.
