Excelent seafood!! Fresh Seafood featuring raw seafood, carpaccios, coktails, aguachiles and tostadas. Very informal setting and very good preparation. I think they miss some cooked dishes, but for a quick informal lunch is a very goos option.

This is a totally unexpected good surprise. The food is served in a complete different way that surprises the costumer. Sea food is served cooled and not warm. The shrimps are placed over the beer and served in a vinagrete sauce with avocato. Delicious. Must go!

To me they do not offer enough sea food options. The dishes they serve are always the same, some raw sea food with some olvie oil and a few condiments to change the flavor a little bit. Is always crowded and too expensive.

A must visit place for each of our trips to Leon. It is a simple open air lunch place with fresh sea food, which is very much liked by local people. Prices are not low, but the quality of food is great. Great value for money and open friendly atmosphere.

I think this restaurant is completely over-rated. The prices are overly excessive for what they serve. This is definitely not the best mexican seafood in León. The quality of the food served here is fair, however, you can get better dishes and cooked specialties elsewhere. They do have a fair variety of vinaigrettes used in their preparations which is what... More

This is by far the best Sea Food Restaurant for me in Leon, Gto. Is a good place to go, you don't have to go with fancy clothes, is like if you where on the beach, but in a city. The Marlin with their secret recipe vinagrette is...OMG the best for me. I eat a whole plate of that by... More

By far the bet seafood place in Leon. Prompt service, always somebody circling around you to see what you need. Atmosphere is open. Cons - cash only. Worth to stop by an ATM and eat lunch or early dinner.

Los Panchos is now the best Mariscos place in Leon. Camarones a la vinagretta served on a mexican clay platter, cold and with plenty of flavor is my favorite dish. Large amount of cooked shrimp [U-20]comes with fresh onions sliced and mixed along green olives, habanero slices and a marinate made [I am guessing] with olive oil, salsa maggi, lime... More
