Only the freshest fish and sea food, all served with homemade sauces. Specifically unique is the ceviche and the fish tacos, all made to order. Truly the best experience in town

The street this restaurant is on is labeled fish and seafood taco stands. Out of curiousity we turned down it to investigae. Mariscos was packed so we said we must try it during our stay in Todos Santos. Came back for lunch the next day and was not disappointed!

We ordered the 3 shrimp taco plate which came with rice and a salad and a plate of fixins which was enough to make another salad. I ordered a 1/2 order of ceviche + bottle of water + homemade lemonade. All for $18!

Our only "complaints" and they are not that big of issues:

They were out of cerveza! They were so busy the night before they sold out!

They gave us a poor exchange rate. We were out of pesos so we take some blame.

Once again the road less traveled often proves to be the best route and Mariscos proved this to be true!

Compa Chava used to be a cart on one of Todos Santos's busy streets. You knew it had to be good because there was always a crowd around it, two-three deep. A few years ago they moved to a palapa of the truck route through town....at that time, a newly paved road, and are still going strong....and busy as ever. If you love ceviche, this is your place! Shrimp and fish tacos? The best in town. If you didn't bring your own beer, the waiter will go buy you one and bring it to you. You always get a big bag of tortilla chips and salsa, too. I love this place and so does everybody else who ever discovers it.

We were recommended to eat here for ceviche, and glad we did so. Tried the ceviche de pescado and also the tacos de pescado (fish ceviche and fish tacos - Ensenada style). Absolutely delicious, inexpensive, fresh. They speak Spanish, it's Mexico, the menu is not that complicated. Even with my decent Spanish, I managed to get confused. Stay with shrimp or fish ceviche and fish tacos, you cannot go wrong.
