I visited El Bayo in Boca del Rio on a recommendation by a local and was a pleasant surprise. Service is prompt and friendly, although the beer selection is limited. Everything on the menu tastes fresh and is available. The kitchen is open, so you can have a look and the cooks are very kind and open for chat. All this has made me a repeat customer when I am in Veracruz. Price is very good and if you add the food and the service, it becomes an outstanding value. A bit more cleanliness would be welcome.

In Boca del Rio, El Bayo appeared the only one that was not deserted on a Thursday afternoon. The menu is typical Vera Cruz. Nice ceviche and stuffed crab. Not a great selection of beers and even less wines.

Recommended by a local it was a great choice. The food is superb, fresh, the prices unbeatable and the service courteous, fast and helpful. The location is a typical seafood place from years ago, so a great taste of the real Veracruz.

Me and my family love to eat out and like to try several restaurants, but this by a long shot has one us over as a family, the service is just amazing treat you like you're coming to grandmas house, a very warm and family like feeling. Shrimp and fish are always cooked to perfection and we have always been given good portions along with those homemade tortillas, if you want a real taste of Veracruz and the best seafood in town this is the place :)
