Jose was an excellent host and the food, as always, was spectacular. The noisy restaurants on the ocean are fun, but if you want better food at a better price without the craziness, then the Blue Marlin is the best.

The Food was excellent along with the quiet atmosphere along with the wonderful service. The oysters (both raw and fried) were fantastic along with the coconut shrimp, I highly recommend both.

I recommended this place to my husband because of all the outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor. But, ultimately, the food wasn't as tasty here as we found at other (less popular?) places in the area, and the staff not nearly as welcoming and friendly.

The food was excellent and well priced. My crab-stuffed flounder was very tasty, with a delicate hollandaise on top. My husband loved the coconut shrimp so much he ordered a second one. The restaurant is small so try to get there before the dinner crowd.

Cute, quaint, severs were fantastic. I ordered the flounder and crab, however, it tasted like flounder and tuna. The guacamole was very delious along with the cilantro sauce. The breaded was amazing. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend this place. It's not on a busy street so you can sit outside and enjoy your meal. I ordered the Chipotle Shrimp. I wanted more. It was so tasty.

Seafood options mostly, all very fresh. Not a lot of classic Mexican but they make fresh guacamole that's delicious and offer rice and beans. The menu is more upscale type dishes but good portions and really good.
