Great food and great location. Among all of us we had several dishes all outstanding. Had a special sea snail filet in a garlic sauce (mojo de ajo) also we had a local dish "platano frito relleno de mariscos" baked plantain filled with seafood, weird but really tasty we ordered it plain without the bean sauce and was really good....

This is the Flag Ship of all in their resturants in the Veracruz-Boca Del Rio area of Veracruz. Both the quality of the food and sevice is first class. Menue choices are 99% sea food based, so if you are thinking of a Rib-Eye think again..

A taxi driver directed us to this place when we asked for a recommendation for a good seafood restaurant. The restaurant is palapa style (open air, thatched roof) with some outdoor seating, directly on the beach---very nice view. Everyone in our party enjoyed their dinner, but I ordered the whole huachinango (red snapper) deep fried and it was excellent. The... More

I have been to Veracruz a couple of times, and one thing that sticks out to me is that almost every restaurant has the same menu. I don't know if that's because there is a lot of fishing/seafood there, or if restaurants that deviate from traditional dishes don't do as well, or any number of other reasons there could be....

If you want to try the regional local flavors in a welcoming atmosphere (even with live music), with quality dishes and acceptable service, look no further. This place is a favorite with the locals for some reasons... don't you agree?

One of the best traditional seafood placea in Veracruz. The place may use a little bit of renovation, as well as the brand, they have lots of local credit to do so. Food is very good, even though the dishes may modernize a little bit too. All in all a very good place to visit!
