Five of us in town for business had dinner at Elmosquito. Not being experts in the local seafood we left it to our waiter to recommend dishes. He did a very good job and we had a great meal.

This restaurant was touted as a top spot. It didn't seem that way to me. The food was good, but certainly not remarkable. It is a very traditional restaurant, with good service, and good - but not outstanding - food

Used to come here as a child with my parents and seafood is still just as amazing. Service efficient. If you love seafood eat here - you will not find better. Good choice of wine and plenty of local ones too. Great to go back!
