No matter if you are in for a "seviche" (lemon-cooked seafood) or a full meal, in this rather informal place you will always find fresh seafood. Have been coming here for many years now, and consistency has been a key factor for its success... always fresh, always good!

The place looks underwhelming from the outside, but the key to this restaurant is how awesome the food is. They are also super generous with the token seafood soup at the beginning, and the great portions of lime they always give. I love the whole fish a la Veracruzana, but they also have some of the best seviche in town... More

This is about the best ceviche you can have in Guatemala City, they also have a great selection of Seafood dishes like Cazuela de Mariscos and many more. The restaurant is not located in the nicest area of the city, but it is not so bad either. They have a little parking lot next to the restaurant and security outside... More

To start, before you even get in to the restaurant you get harassed by vendors and “security staff” that “looks at your vehicle” that way nothing happens to the vehicle. Then, you get in, and the place is ok. Way run down and noting amazing. Simple and rustic. We went to the second floor. The patio. Dirty, ugly, wear down... More

A great choice to eat seafood, the ingredients are always fresh and tasty in here. The location is a bit complicated if you are not aware of the area, and parking can be challenging but always worth the wait.

This is the place for real ceviches and some spanish seafood plates such as Pulpo a la Gallega... they give you a free seafood soup as a starter, very tasty stuff... whole fish and fillets.. you choose... the real natural thing, no chemical stuff, you can tell that it is fresh... the atmosphere is nothing fancy but the place is...
