Aweful, went because the reviews were good, should have known when it was nearly empty on Saturday night, wanted fish, asked if it was 'pescardo' said yes but it turned out to be beef, rice tasted reheated, all tasted bland, worse meal ever

So this place was suggested to me by the locals. I had just arrived and wanted seafood, this place was where I ended up. I ordered the ceviche and was very happy with it. I've had ceviche's from different countries and states of mexico and this one was in the top 3. I don't remember how much it was (sorry!)... More

Great menu, decided to order Fried Fish and a generous guacamole along with a tequila centenario plata (third was on the house) Ambiance is great if you are in fiesta mood, the service was a little slow but quality and portions exceeded my expectations. Price is fair, location is prime, just a few steps from main plaza and Cuervo Destillery.

Decoration and atmosphere is all that can say to this place. The food could be better if they serve it on time, but the taste is good.

Great portions, seafood very tasty! Great waiters. Very authentic! Seafood is very fresh since Tequila is close to fishing community.

Stop by this restaurant when you are in the town of Tequila and enjoy great food and atmosphere. There was 3 of us and our experience was a memorably one.

We visit Tequila and chose Sauza tour, it was amazing, our guides were friendly and made us enjoy and learn about the proces of elaboration the tequila. I already read some reviews in this site and decide to have lunch at Real Marinero. We try "sopa azteca" and arrachera. Both were delicius and the service excellent

The service was reasonable and the margaritas were fine. Our daughter and granddaughter enjoyed the camarones al tequila but my steak arrechera was overcooked and my wife's salmon disappointing.

We were wandering through the plaza in Tequila when a gringo came over and struck up a conversation. He lived in Tequila and told of many wonders. As we left him he told us we must try this place. As were leaving town later we thought we would try it. It was spectacular! Pescado fillete relleno. The best I have... More

A popular seafood restaurant located on a side street near the church in this nationally recognized "Pueblo Magico." They either have entertainment on the stage or strolling musicians. The walls are rather pleasing if garishly painted with an underwater scene reminiscent of "the Little Mermaid." The food is very good and well priced.
