I visited this restaurant for dinner on a weekday. And it is a standalone building on Roselle with a large parking lot. I walked inside and found its interior pleasing. The restaurant has lot of space but on a weekday in this neighborhood there was only a few tables. We ordered two entrees, one is the Cancun skillet and the other soup marina. The waiter gave us some free chicken soups but it was a little too salty for my taste.
The skillet came with shrimps, grilled octopus, vegetables and some rice; the seafood was prepared perfect for our liking. About the soup marina, the menu showed a picture with a shallow bowl full with seafood inside. But the actual dish came with a deeper bowl with much more soap than expected. It was not the taste that gave me an issue. The bowl was bigger so I needed to fish out lot of stuffs inside the bowl for my meal. Although the soap was tasty, it did become too much of a good thing at the end. Few people could accustom to drinking so much soap for dinner, so I would not recommend it unless you can share the soap with someone. Since I had chicken soap before that, the liquid really filled me up. My expectation of this Soap Marina should resemble more like a Fishman's stew from Mexico; that did not turn out to be the case. So I did not enjoy my dinner as much as I could. On hindsight, I should have ordered another seafood dish like the Cancun Skillet with no soap.
The other issue has to do with their table settings, the napkins was too thin for dinner especially if you happen to order seafood. You can grasp more napkins but I wonder why some thicker cloth-like paper napkins were not used.
This restaurant offers 7-day lunch buffet in case you want to eat more during lunch time.
