“Super slow service”

Service is slow, very slow. Food needs more flavor. Our meals tasted bland. This was dinner. This place is always full. Seating is not efficient. Why have tables for 12 and only seat 4 people. A busboy would help. Many tables dirty and nowhere to sit.

This is a great little restaurant. Main parking lot is a little small but there's additional parking in a lot adjacent north to the restaurant. Bright decor with fast friendly service. You're greeted at the table with chips, salsa and soup. Salsa is slightly spicy but delicious. Fried items have a choice of coating, a light breading or a batter type coating. Servings are large and you won't leave hungry. Nice selection of seafood items plus daily specials are posted on a white board. Bar specials are also posted. If you love seafood, you can't go wrong at this place.

We took our family to Sabores del Golfo for a family get together.
6 adults and 1 child.
As we were starting to order the waitress after listening to us, suggested we order a platter for the entire table to share. This worked out wonderfully.
All of the seafood on our platters were served hot, nothing was warm or cold. Perfect.
We love happy atmosphere and excellent value of the seafood.
Really good.

My wife and we're hungry for Mexican style seafood. Click on TripAdvisor app and showed several including Sabor del Golfo. Directions tools right to the parking lot.
It was packed with families, couples, and groups. We were able to get a table since its self sitting. Within minutes, the waitress came by with menus. Took out beer order and brought two very, very cold beers in chilled Pilsner glasses. She apologized for the delay in bringing the chips and salsa and explained they were a it behind. However, within 5 minutes she brought them and, man!, that salsa was hot!!! but GOOD!
We share a large shrimp cocktail and 1 pound of fried tilapia. The tomato based sauce in the cocktail was thick and not runny and had a sweet tangy taste to it the 2 fried tilapia fillets was lightly breaded and sat on top of French fries. This was a feast!!!
Since its a family oriented restaurant, it was noisy but pleasant.
We have earmarked Sabor del Golfo for a return visit any time we're in Harlingen. I asked the waitress and she said they been opened about a year.

We tried this place third on our list of great autentico Mexican restaurants in the Harlingen area. We wanted the seafood and got it! The spicing is excellent. The fish, shrimp and other items were prepared very nicely. The portions appear small, but was plenty to eat. Our server was wonderful.
