We arrived just as the staff was setting up for the day. To be fair, we think our waiter was brand new since he just couldn't get the order correct and it took him forever just to bring our beverages! Once we got our food, it was delicious! Large selection of seafood served either raw or cooked. Bring your own... More

Only the freshest fish and sea food, all served with homemade sauces. Specifically unique is the ceviche and the fish tacos, all made to order. Truly the best experience in town

The street this restaurant is on is labeled fish and seafood taco stands. Out of curiousity we turned down it to investigae. Mariscos was packed so we said we must try it during our stay in Todos Santos. Came back for lunch the next day and was not disappointed! We ordered the 3 shrimp taco plate which came with rice...

Compa Chava used to be a cart on one of Todos Santos's busy streets. You knew it had to be good because there was always a crowd around it, two-three deep. A few years ago they moved to a palapa of the truck route through town....at that time, a newly paved road, and are still going strong....and busy as ever.... More

We were recommended to eat here for ceviche, and glad we did so. Tried the ceviche de pescado and also the tacos de pescado (fish ceviche and fish tacos - Ensenada style). Absolutely delicious, inexpensive, fresh. They speak Spanish, it's Mexico, the menu is not that complicated. Even with my decent Spanish, I managed to get confused. Stay with shrimp... More

We got there at closing, but the family that runs it stuck around to crank out fresh ceviche and fish tacos to go. Very tasty, fresh, filling. Nice folks.

The ceviche is fresh and very good, made to order with lots of variety. The salsa they serve with the chips is very flavorful and hot. My mouth was on fire but I couldn't stop eating it. The fish tacos are very good as well--lots of fresh toppings and sauces. You can bring your own beer, or wine, or whatever.... More

Today is day one of vacation and I am so very glad we heeded the reviews about this place. Having never tried ceviche before and speaking very little Spanish, I was skeptical, but not any more. I had the ceviche de pescado and was truly in heaven!

I usually will eat lunch here but this last time in Todos Santos I was never in town during the day. So, on my way back to my casa, I stopped by and had them make up a ceviche of fresh fish. They immediately took the fish out of the cooler and started chopping the fish with onion, lime and... More
