It was delicious and it was a cozy little place. The staff was friendly. So sad that not a lot of people know about it!

Not really a fan of fish...but the baja fish tacos at this place rock. Seven different salsas and great prices (Under $10.00 US for two big tacos for me and 2 killer tostada's and a drink for the wife) service was spot on. Check this...place out.More

Everything is so good here and the prices are great. Definitely recommend. Will be back again. We got lost looking for another restaurant and went here and I’m so glad we did.

Everything is sooo good! All we have been doing is eating out while here for the last week( we cook 6 days/ nights a week at home) this place rocks! Great spot to try a lot of different items as everything is a la carte....No rice and beans for fillers.More

The little stop on the side of the road is perfect. Walking distance from anywhere in the romantic zone. About 5 tables and a great staff. They serve chips with about 8 different salsas ranging from sweet to spicy. The menu has nothing but good...stuff. Mostly tacos and tostadas. See pics. I had tropical shrimp, jicama and shrimp, and tuna and mango. My friend had the bacon and fish. All were excellent! They don’t serve alcohol but you can buy a cheap beer at the market next door and bring it back to your table. Also it’s cash only. Enjoy!More

Excellent service by “Angel”. Arrived at 6pm and place was empty, turns out they close at six. Service was outstanding and enjoyed shrimp burrito, shrimp taco and fish tacos. Great selection of salsas offered. At 6:45 I asked why restaurant was so empty- never felt...rushed or realized they were closed - extra tip followed.More

I had the fish taco and the shrimp taco. Both were delicious, both very fresh and lightly deep fried. They brought out about 6 sauces and the green was outstanding. Everyone cooking and waiting were super friendly, and made you feel at home. Best rating--I...will return!More

We rented an apartment around the corner from this gem and never tried it. About the time we were moving my husband and I gave it a try and were blown away. Its fresh and lovely. A lot of the food in PV is heavy...and greasy (which I love) but this was such a nice change of pace!More

We paid cash. Most of the small restaurants in PV operate on a cash only basis.

They did have one vegetarian poke bowl, however, I’m sure they can make any item on the menu without the meat if you ask them
