I visited this restaurant a few days ago as it had been highly recommended to me. I ordered 'zarandeado' prawns. They were very nice, large prawns, a decent-sized serving, but nothing particularly special, particularly in light of the recommendation which had led me to eat there in the first place. I began to wonder if I had ordered the wrong... More

I recently visited the Fraile de Tepic based on recommendations which did not turn out to be too truthful. The quality of the food is average at the best, nothing really stands out. The restaurant itself is a basic restaurant, cheap tables and chairs are used to accommodate guests. And has valet parking adding to the expense for a basic... More

I am not sure what the fish was, but it was really tasty.. But the best thing was the grilled shrimps. I have never had shrimps that tasted... More

I love fresh fish grilled over a wood fire at a waterfront restaurant, and this great place on the mainland of Mexico does it as well or better than anywhere else. Entrees are harvested fresh from the Pacific at Mazatlan and Puerta Vallarta the day before, and trucked overnight to Guadalajara. Share an appetizer of fresh-shucked oysters (try the Oysters...

The restaurant was recommended by a business associate as a must experience seafood restaurant. According to our associate, this restaurant is more of a lunch stop than a dinner experience - dinner is later in Mexico than in the US. I am not sure if this is true, but we arrived at 4:30 pm and left at 6 pm. The... More
