“GET SOME SEAFOOD”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Needed a seafood fix, so tried here. Had the fish papillote. Good but could have used a little more seasoning. Also had shrimp with vegetables. Shrimp were done just right. All were served with fish soup (very little fish in it), lettuce (needed some dressing), white rice and mashed potatoes (lukewarm at best). You must try the Tres Leches cake-- that was out of this world! Service was OK- sat with dirty dishes on the table for quite a long time. A good place to have fish in Las Cruces since there are not many other places.

“Excellent sea food Mexican style”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

The Mexican sea food is excellent very fresh and tasty. They also sell traditional Mexican food. Their free soup (caldo) that accompanies every meal is delicious. My favorite is the fish soup.

“Large portions, great soup, surprisingly good seafood”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This place is medium-expensive, but worth it. The service is super fast and accurate. The seafood and non-seafood dishes were both excellent. Our only complaint would be that they should heat up the plates first, because the mashed potatoes, rice and beans were (while delicious) all kind of lukewarm. They have more than one type of soup -- the ones we had were fabulous. I think there must have been 8 to 10 oz. of fish in mine. It comes with most meals. The salsas which also come with your meal are also fantastic -- not too spicy. I highly recommend this place. My shrimp dish was definitely not overcooked; it was just right (and they de-veined the shrimp, unlike most other LC restaurants).

“Don't waist your money!!!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Was very disappointed, I'm surprised to see good reviews. The shrimp was overcooked, rubbery. The meal was served with instant mashed potatoes and white rice, not traditional Spanish rice and beans. The waitress acted like she barely spoke any English never came back to check on us, I assume because she knew she was automatically getting 15% since we had a big party. They began busing our table before we were done and didn't even ask! I would have been more satisfied with a simple burrito down the road.

“Great seafood, authentic Mexican”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Our friends who live in Las Cruces were adamant that we had to eat here. Fish is terrific--the seviche was really tasty. They give you fish soup with everything, and it's delicious. Not a cream soup, more of a tomato/chicken stock with chunks of white fish. What I found a bit odd was the sides--rice AND mashed potatoes, the potatoes topped with an olive! Real mashed potatoes, though, yummy. No beans, which I missed. Anglos are in the minority here, this is very popular among local Hispanic population. Not fancy--wobbly Formica tables and old linoleum on the floor, but friendly, fast, and really good food. At least the seafood is--given the name of the place, that's what I'd recommend you focus on.
