I have been coming here for the past 5 yrs, and I find their Campechanas, pata de mulas, and almejas.....the best in the area..! The oysters, are a little small. But they are fresh...I will continue coming here for my sea food when I am in town~

They have the best shrimp tacos. The prices are very reasonable. We paid less than $1 per taco. The micheladas are ok.

Don't let it's small size fool you. This little restaurant has delicious fish tacos and even better Clamatos and Micheladas. The staff is very nice and it is great value for the price. You must stop by and try it for yourself.

I've been to El Poder well over a dozen times. It's a favorite of locals and visitors "in the know."

I haven't had it, but also seen others enjoying... More

I am in and out of Rosarito every few months, and have been trying fish and shrimp tacos all over town, as well as down in Ensenada and in TJ itself. And no matter how many I try, Mariscos continues to be my #1 go-to place for all things deliciously battered and fried. The batter is really light, the oil... More
