This place is further down the street and perhaps nicely away from the 'noisy' crowd. You are able to have an easy conversation here. Had the special for the night which was lobster and it was very tasty. A few bottles of Victoria beer served by the happy & courteous staff made for a great night. Sitting outside in the... More

We were here for Valentine's Day. Excellent food and service (Kenneth). I had two lobsters, fish fillet, shrimp, plus potato and veggies all for $19.00. Took some home for lunch the next day. (#9). Husband had lobster pasta and enjoyed every bit!

We are there last night and were very impressed. The service was great and the seafood platter #9 was amazing for the price. Two lobster tails, big fish fillet and lots of great shrimp for less than 20 bucks. Recommended!,

We always feel so happy to be at El Marlin. It is at the quiet end of the Calzada and the food is always so good. The shrimp fettuccine was perfect. The restaurant moved just a few doors away from there previous location last year. You can eat inside or out. The owner Bosco & Carla always make you feel... More

Friend from out of town suggested we go to El Marlin for dinner. We ordered the lobster/shrimp platter and shared between the 2 of us. Was absolutely delicious! Drinks were great also.

My wife and I had a great meal at El Marlin last night, in fact so good that we came back again tonight. Over the course of the 2 meals we had lobster, shrimp, corvina and tenderloin in different preparations with outstanding flavor and sauces. Each meal was presented in a beautiful fashion with assorted vegetables, puréed potatoes all with... More

As a lobster lover it was over the top. The coconut tempura shrimp were some of the best I ever had. Fresh, innovative food with great service.

We wandered in for dinner about 7pm and ordered a platter of lobster and fish to share. This was beautifully cooked and presented. Just a terrific meal, and very reasonably priced. Simply done. The seafood was the star. Very friendly service. All in all a good experience.

Had dinner at El Marlin after passing by a few days ago and what a fabulous place to dine with some friends. The Lobster Lovers special for $19.50 US was beyond delicious and worth at least double or triple the cost. Two lobster tails, 6 nice size shrimp with veggies, a salad and more. The fish was deep fried in... More
