We went there for the seafood, I had a soup that was not very hot and the taste was not fresh. Now the fajitas plate for two was good the meat had good taste also the sides. The service was great and quick.

Place it's actually a house that's converted into a restaurant, their specialty is seafood. The food is actually average, not bad but not the greatest, prices are a bit expensive. I would recommend for dessert their "flan" it's pretty good. Not sure if I would come back anytime soon.

We brought my wife's 91 yo mother to La Calle Doce Oak Cliff for lunch. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The building was handicap accessible. The food was excellent as always. This is one of our favorite stops whenever we visit Dallas. We do highly recommend it.

Incredible, authentic Mexican seafood restaurant. Order the oyster cocktail! Superb. My husband had the paella and was very satisfied. Enough food for two with that entree, easily. I had the butter garlic shrimp and it was mouthwatering. Nothing disappoints there except the amount of raw onions on most things! Ask them to hold the raw onions, unless you are a... More

The food was average (El Ranchito is much better), but one thing for sure, they will up-sale you on everything ! They add the price to your meal EVEN if you don't order it. We ordered the fajitas, but did not order the cheese and sour cream (knowing it would cost an additional $1.50). When it came out, we told... More

This was my first visit, but won't be the last. I always start off with staples at a new place, to see how it compares. The hubs got fajitas and had some exciting flavor explosions in his mouth! He also loved the tortillas. I got the three fish taco plate and liked all three, with the salmon being my favorite.... More

The menu sounds great. Too bad the actual food doesn't live up to expectations. The drinks were good. Different flavors of margaritas and Mexican beer. For appetizers we had the Mexican ahi and the cervichie. The ahi was acceptable, but the cervichie was pretty darn good. The entrees were disappointing. Mojo snapper was so-so. The camorones dish was mediocre. A... More

The food and service is outstanding. You really can't go wrong with anything you order. They have a nice patio and a great bar too. They have very casual atmosphere. Usually there is a trio playing music at the tables. There is usually a wait for big parties so would recommended calling ahead for a reservation.

Thank Janie A

Since 1981 La Calle Doces has been serving the Dallas area delicious seafood and Tex-Mex made with the freshest ingredients. Signature dishes such as Pescado a la Parilla, Ceviche and Camaron a la Veracruzana have made such an impact that on August 6th, 1999 a second location was opened in Lakewood.

Guess can enjoy the rich culture of Coastal Mexico through the fresh and flavorful cuisine. Just 10 minutes from Downtown Dallas, La Calle Doce offers daily specials, friendly smiles, and a cozy atmosphere and traditional menu.
