Seafood is made fresh and is delicious. I had the fried fish and it was very tasty. My friends had various seafood dishes and they were very happy with their food. Wait staff is efficient, and had our food served rather quickly. This is a great place for meeting with a group because it has a couple of rooms that... More

This is my second time eating here. The food is amazing and so are the drinks. My wife loves their sangria.

The shrimp nachos - the guacamole - the mini-shrimp tacos are fantastic. Where can 4 folks go ....have 6 margaritas...the shrimp nachos...the mini-shrimp tacos... More

We go to El Siete Mares every week for the best ceviche andfried calamari we've had since living in Mexico. The seafood is so fresh I feel like I'm back in Isla Mujeres.

Two visits now and I plan on going back to work my way through the extensive menu. The service is slow so if you are inpatient you'll likely be irratated. However, choosing to be here you weren't looking for fast food in the first place. Amazing flavors coming your way once you decide on your meal. Don't be afraid to... More

For what it's worth, our waitress was very attentive and spoke perfect English. As for security and personal safety, I took my sister and best two friends... More

We tried this place on a whim after googling seafood restaurants. It was not too far from the hotel and fit the bill. The waitress spoke very limited English and didn't understand much of it either. It's a good place to practice your Spanish. I ended up having the cabrito instead of fish and my BF had the carnitas. Both... More
