If you love shrimp tacos as much as I do you have to go to Los aguachiles. Everything in the menu is great. I recommend the tuna tostadas, the Popeye shrimp taco and the encamado shrimp taco.

Great food and great prices. Many locals obviously know something good. Very fresh ceviches and fish. The sun tanned octopus is also very good. A bit out of the way of 5 th avenue but well worth it

This is a no frills restaurant not far off the 5th. Start with the cucumber cocktail. Smoky octopus was very good. Order about 3 tacos for dinner. Service was great.

We were recommended this restaurant for fish tacos and atmosphere which were both to be found. Small portions, very loud and staff seemed far more interested in the football (soccer) game on the wide screens than in the clients at tables. As an aside, there was a patron at another table with his 6 week old albino pitbull puppy and... More

Stayed just down the street from Los Aguachiles in Dec 2016. Despite staying at an all-inclusive hotel, had dinner here twice! Fish tacos were top-notch, and local beer (Pescadores, blonde variant) was great. Would highly recommend.

Amazing tacos and tostadas in a very informal setup. We heard about this place and decided to try and we didn't regret the idea. Everything was delicious and super cheap so highly recommended. There is one also just outside 5a avenue and Constituyientes.

We learned about this place from a local and we are so glad we took the time to find it. My adult children both had the octopus special and LOVED it. My husband and I both had the aguachile mixed seafood - he had black sauce and I had green sauce. Sorry, I can't remember the exact names but they... More

So glad we listened to a local's recommendation. Delicious lunch!!!! We had a variety of tacos (they have lettuce wraps for a healthy option), ceviche, and guacamole. They are known for the big beers but we had frosty pina coladas. Great prices too.

Simply put this is an all day eatery/ snack restaurant that punches far, far above its weight! Deco is sparse - plastic table and chairs, no frills, with a menu that sticks to what they do without trying to be fancy. But what they do has been the best we have found! Simply ideal for lunch as set away from... More
