This is the best restaurant in all of San Antonio in our opinion. Every single thing we've tried has been delicious, authentic and prepared to perfection with excellent presentation. The service is over the top. El 7 Mares is a must do for every visit to beautiful San Antonio!

We go to El Siete Mares every week for the best ceviche andfried calamari we've had since living in Mexico. The seafood is so fresh I feel like I'm back in Isla Mujeres.
