I recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience Mexican vibe! Great and really cheap seafood. People who are looking for fancy place to eat will be disappointed though. Not very clean and the service is mediocre. Nevertheless the food is amazing.

This place is the best for ceviche and other Mexican dishes. The pescado empanizado is fantastic and the ambience is super local and cool. Totally recommend.
