Great place for a meal. Plenty of choice and good seafood. Good service. Enjoyed the Tuna and the starters.

I had high hopes, based on their sister restaurant in Campeche, but it just didn't live up to the original. Great North Beach location, very elegant decor, incredibly attentive service, but the food was just OK. Probably only disappointing because I already knew how good the food is at the Campeche location.

The staff was friendly the food was good, but the coolest thing about this place is the fact that they have a room in the back that is basically dedicated to kids. this is great if you want to go out and the kids can also have a good time while you enjoy your dinner. Again food wad really good... More

This place was recommended to me by a friend from Campeche. They prepare traditional food from this region of Mexico, such as: Pampano a la sal (fish covered with sea salt and baked), Pan de Cazon (fish with layered tortillas), Pulpo a las brazas (Grilled Octopus), and so on. The menu has a wide variety of seafood and meat options.... More

My wife and I wanted a light lunch and we had seen the place as it is in an area near the beach and some upscale locations. We were greeted by our server who immediately offered us hand sanitizer. Very nice touch. Our menus were in Spanish, but we made it through. We both ordered a shrimp dish. Here's was... More

We had great shrimp appetizers, coconut shrimp and oregano flavored. They also give you a sample of the tomato soup shot, as a teaser. The coconut shrimp were huge. Business crowd during the day.

The food here is amazing. The staff was very attentive. The restaurant was impeccably clean. Recommendations were given when needed. The bar was very flexible with the mixed drinks. My husband and I started with the Seafood Bisque. I love my soup HOT! so when the waiter Isidro J. cautioned us, I was impressed. Then we had the Fish Ceviche... More

We come just to try the coconut cake! It was delicious! And we have a capuccino and espresso, also great! The service (besides that we only take this the first time) was great! In our next visit, we tried octopus and black rice, the two dishes was very delicious, but to my taste the place is expensive for that they... More

This is a typical seafood restaurant. If you enjoy this kind of food then you will love the place. It is not very noisy and can be a good place for a business meal.
