Foursquare Tips

  • The El Barco Style Prawns are so addicting, you'll come back tomorrow for more. Oh, make sure to get a mango margarita to complete this incredible meal.
  • Their octopus Ceviche is the best overall ceviche in the actual city, next to the one I make in my kitchen.
  • The dinner for 2, 3 or 4 is FANTASTIC! Crab legs, mussels, shrimp, octopus, squid, mahi mahi, chicken, steak, veggies and more! Cooked to perfection!
  • This restaurant is a Mexican restaurant that has an amazing selection as well as delicious sea food dishes.
  • Must haves: Tamarind margarita and the refried beans. My favorite dish is the salmon fajitas.
  • This place is ok if you want fried things and didn't byob. Veneno de nayarit across the street is better
  • They have good vegetarian fajitas and the best mango margarita in town
  • Buttered shrimp
  • Get the margaritas & the chicken tacos!!
  • Best fish tacos. Highly recommend! Great hole in the walk
  • Can't go wrong with the ceviche.
  • Really indifferent device here. Won't be back.
  • Exellent food and great eye candy! ;)
  • I did not enjoy the crab legs. too salty.
  • 9$ margarita pitchers. overwhelming portions and flavors. Go hungry.
  • The portions are GIGANTIC! Get the shrimp in white wine, garlic and cilantro. Boneless snapper chipotle style is incredible.
  • Deep fried whole red snapper with chipotle sauce is must-have!
  • Everything is very tasty here. Frankly, not many flaws here. Food is fresh and the fish is the star.
  • A MUST go place!!!! There is always a wait but well Worth it
  • Amazing mexican seafood restaurant. Good service, spicy salsas and big portions. Try the clamato michelada, Mexico's take on Bloody Mary.
