Do not miss this local Mexican Seafood Restaurant. It is worth the drive. Try the whole Fish topped with Shrimp. You can share with the others at your table. Try to dine upstairs where it is quieter or done downstairs for the local flavor.

Really good food, great staff and clean bathrooms! Enjoyed the grilled shrimp platter and the #9 sampler appetizer platter and it was ALL DELISH! The fried rice is a surprise and was also very good. Will definitely recommend and be back.

Their seafood soup is the best I've ever had, bar none! They have absolutely the best fried shrimp and grilled whole snapper. Always friendly wait staff. Their salsa is like none other, served hot/warm and with really good chips.....you'll want to drink the salsa.
