When in Hotbox, you must visit Las Panchas for the freshest fish around!!!!! The fishermen are bringing the fish from the sea to the kitchen. Don't miss the whole fish, or even the grilled filet.

I ordered a traditional fish meal, and the fish was simple and good. There was also a small salad and rice. The food wasn't extraordinary, but it was fine.

A chill, unpretentious, and very relaxed seafood joint with fresh food and bargain prices. Arrive early or it will be packed!

Huge portions and genuine Mexican food. The fish ceviche is very tasty, and we also liked the fish tacos. Service is quick and friendly.

We had heard great things about this place but the food was certainly not among the best the we had on the island and the prices has gone up since it appeared in the various guidebooks. Fine for a lunch place but better quality and value elsewhere.

Authentic, beautifully prepared Mexican and seafood cuisine. Affordably-priced, as well. And popular with locals – as evidenced by the line-ups of people you'll quite often see, waiting to get in.

Good food but it is very crowded and you have to wait for a table for a long time and then for food, big serving sizes
