We went here due to the great reviews and it didn't disappoint. The shrimp ceviche was amazing! We went back again for our last meal of the trip and had the whole fried fish which was really flavorful and moist. This is authentic old Mexico.

Great sea food Mexican style. Be ready to wait is usually very crowded, but it's worth the wait. Service can improve a little.

Went there for dinner. Good service, clean place. Lots of choice of fish and seafood. Their ceviche mixed is a must. Very good price for the quality and freshness you get.

Always crowded, excellent food, sizable portions, very reasonable prices. Whole fried fish was a highlight, as were the ceviche and octopus. Good drinks, too. A bit cramped in some of the tables but it was all part of the fun family oriented atmosphere.

Worthwhile the 10 minutes wait at lunch time. Once good service, once not too good. The seafood plate -lobster tail, crab, calamari, etc. delicious. Good price.
