“Among the best seafood restaurants in the Valley”

Mariscos de la Rosa
Ranked #21 of 373 Restaurants in Brownsville
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We just discovered this place recently and it immediately became one of our favorite seafood restaurants in the Valley. We ordered the shrimp soup, which was very good, the shrimp cocktail (probably the best one we've eaten in the Valley) and the filete Moctezuma (fish filet with tender cactus and gratin cheese, cooked in a beer sauce), which was also very good! Generally, the portions are big, so consider that when you order!

My only issue with this restaurant is that it is a little bit noisy when crowded, so it is not the best place to go if you want to have a nice chat.

WOW! Have been living in this city (winter Texan) for almost 3 years and just discovered this place now. Looks like not much from the outside and the parking is always full, good sign number one. We had the shrimp cocktail, fried calamari and the seafood platter; all was shared between 3 of us. Add two beers each and dinner was less than $50 and the food was amazing. Fresh, local ingredients make this place rock. You gotta eat here, ok!

The fish soup is great. The Seafood Platter is amazing...a little of everything (lots of shrimp!). Loved it. It's a small family open area dining area. Nothing fancy and it doesn't need to be. The food is great and so is the service!! Can't wait to return!

I went for lunch and it was packed and rightly so. It was an extremely pleasant experience. I had Shrimp Velancia and it was better than excellent. The restaurant was also nice enough to substitute veggies for the rice it is usually served with. The service was excellent too. The place is rather plain but clean but who cares with the food they serve. They only have fish and shrimp dishes or at least that's all I saw and the choice was difficult to make. They all sounded so good. Check out their web site for hours...they are not open very late.

We love seafood and this is a gem of a restaurnt for the quality of food. The gps got us close but it wanted to take us past the restaurant so keep your eye out for it. We tried a couple of appetizers and both were good. The beginning chips and salsa were excellent. We love fish tacos, so we had those and loved them. Service was great. Atmosphere was expected to be bland and it was...it reminded us of when we were traveling in Mexico years ago and we were the only foreigners in the restaurant. Restaurant was very busy but everyone was taken care of.
