We ate here on a Saturday night. It got very busy quickly (7.30pm) but the free chips and quick service on the food meant we didn't go hungry.

Make sure you try the orden el camarón en salsa de diabla.

This is real Mexican seafood. Generous portions and decent prices. The crowds are understandable. The shrimp cocktail, and the shrimp skewers are really, really good. It is a very casual place, with casual Mexican service (aiming for efficiency and not necessarily terribly friendly). In general, you can't go wrong here.

Ate here on a sunday, the place was packed. We had to wait in line to get a seat but we were impressed with the food choices and service. We had fish ceviche and shrimp ceviche, portions are large and the flavor was good. Prices were reasonable overall it was a great opportunity to eat with the locals and sample their everyday food.

Their fish is always fresh and cheap! If you are in the city I would recommend this spot, get the whole fried fish!
