We ate dinner at Marisco's and enjoyed it completely. The seafood soup, Caldo Vuelve a la Vida was fantastic - I had the small one and it was too much so I took half of it home. For my main course I enjoyed the Camarones de Santa Fe, shrimp on a creamy mushroom sauce which was delicious. My brother-in-law devoured... More

Get the El Mejor to start. This soup is DELICIOUS! All of the senioritas are so sweet. Quick, hot, good service! My first time in Santa Fe and if I ever go back, this restaurant is my FIRST stop!

When a diner from the coast of Massachusetts and Maine says that it's the best seafood in Santa Fe... you'd better listen. This is the first time in my life that I've lived more than two miles from the Atlantic coast. I grew up on seafood. Marisco's waitstaff will tell you where the seafood was caught, when it came in,... More

Marisco's La Playa is one of the most consistent restaurants in Santa Fe. Years of visits have resulted in exactly Zero bad experiences and many, many fine meals. Our most recent visit, a quick family treat dinner was on a busy Saturday night. No problem. The line moved fast, we were seated in a comfy booth and drink orders taken... More

Marisco's La Playa Restaurant is a tiny restaurant hidden in a shopping area on West Cordiva Road in Santa Fe. But the seafood dishes are the best I ever had anywhere. I am not a big fish eater because just broiled, grilled with no sauce just doesn't do it for me. But, Marisco's has unique sauces and cooking methods that... More

This resturant changed their name to "Mariscos Costa Azul", but they are still located in the same place. We eat take out from their restaurant very often and love it! Food is always well prepared and tasty. Our order is always correct and does not loose quality when you order take out. Our favorite is the "Mojara Frita" (fried fish)... More

We really enjoyed our lunch here...fresh, delicious food, friendly service, colorful setting and mostly Latino crowd (couples, families, friends & local workers) dining happily ;) Our server, 'Gloria', even remembered us from years ago & welcomed our return. My seafood 'cocktail Gloria grande' (shrimp, oysters, scallops, octopus, avocado in a tall 'sundae' glass w/spicy sauce) was terrific; her 'Mar y... More

fresh seafood in NM? YES, and it's very well prepared. Large portions are par. I enjoyed the ceviche and shrimp tacos. Unusual salsas, 3 different types, all delicious.
