The menu looks good, but what you get is disappointing. The Parmesan encrusted squid ring starter turns out to be soggy battered calamari with cheese grated on top. The fish dishes are fresh, but surprisingly tasteless. The accompanying vegetable (deep fried spinach?!?) is a monument to culinary mistakes. Sautéed tobacco would taste better. A lovely setting wasted on over-contrived bland... More

Espado was not cooked and the ceviche was very average. Service was decent at least. My girlfriend had the pasta with octopus and shrimp which wasn't bad. She said normally the food here is much better.

This restaurant is invested in offering you a highly creative seafood experience. The menu is a fusion of Asian and Mexican with two large menus devoted each to hot or cold seafood creations including the basics you expect from a raw bar. I had the shrimp and octapus brochette over rice which was beautifully presented, generously portioned and absolutely delicious.... More

The food is just OK and the service was veeery slooow. I was warned that this is more like a party style restaurant but even so, the food could be much better for the price. The place, however, is beautiful.

Walking on the beautiful streets of San Miguel de Allende on the first day of the year, we decided to enter Pescau del mar, a restaurant bar. We ordered an appetizer and a meal about 20min later we were told that our appetizer was out, the manager, who also was our waiter, suggested to order the Vietnamese rolls which we... More

6 of us happened upon the restaurant on New Year's Day as most of our favorites were close. The margaritas were excellent but tell them easy on the ice. The Vietnamese spring rolls with flank steak were to die for! Rebecca's tacos on a jicama tortilla Were to die for as were the crispy shrimp and fried rice and the... More

This place is always so busy! Be sure you make reservations! The food was really great and we had yummy cocktails as well. We ended up talking to some locals eating next to us and we had a fantastic time at this place!

friendly, good service, fun bar. Not crazy about the seafood cause it seemed like everything was con queso. So if you order mariscos, tell them sin queso. It'll probably be really good.

Looking for a place for a drink before going to a neighbouring restaurant for dinner we dropped in for a cocktail. Old building courtyard modernized with a cool bar, nice lighting (music too loud), good table seating, friendly service. Ordered two margaritas and one gin martini. A perfect martini with little ice shards, margaritas good. But, $155P for a martini... More
