I went here due to it being close to my hotel and the reviews on Trip Advisor. I got there about 5 PM on a Saturday and the place was almost all mine. I had the carpaccio of robalo with thinly sliced tomato on top, some olive oil and a mist of balsamico and it was excellent. Followed that with a ceviche and the entree was pulpo that was perfectly cooked with a slight char and laid on a wonderful chile sauce. An exceptional meal and while the initial service was excellent by the end of the meal I could not find a staff to close out my bill and it wasn't because they were busy, just not paying attention. That would not stop me from eating here again or recommending it to everyone.

We had heard from the locals that this was a place we should not miss and they were right! The food and service of this place was out of this world. Although I am more of a landlubber than a fish lover, I couldn't resist trying their shrimp - which was the size of a chicken leg....and that was just our appetizer.

I asked about non-fish items and saw very little on the menu - when the adorable waiter (Leonel Sanchez) suggested something off the menu - and was it ever delicious!

The wait staff made us feel like we were royalty - so attentive!

The food presentation, atmosphere and decor of the place had me thinking I must be in a world class restaurant in Europe that I surely could not afford - but their prices are extremely reasonable.

I will always make this a "must stop" when I visit Hermosillo and can't wait to treat others to this delight.

Excellent food and service. Specialize in seafood. If you are a foodie you will enjoy this restaurant even more. The appetizers are fantastic. I had the tuna tartar and was extremely pleased. I followed it with a hibiscus shrimp that wasn't too sweet as some might suspect. Fantastic wait staff. Check out the before and after dinner drink carts - wonderful tequilas. Enjoy.

Enjoyed a great business dinner here. Service was great, provided by Oscar, and others and food was excellent. Take your server's advice on what to order and go with it, it's all fantastic and included dishes I was familiar with and others I was not. Particularly enjoyed the marlin and cheese taquitos. Would recommend and would return.
