Ceviche done right. Small, unassuming place in a strip mall in an industrial area. Weird. This little Mexican seafood restaurant has great ceviche. It reminds me of Mazatlan. We had the shrimp tacos and ceviche tostada. Fresh ceviche. I will come back for the ceviche and try other dishes. Great prices.

I came here after a business meeting after searching for seafood and seeing the excellent ratings. Happy to say they are well deserved. This place is quaint and quite casual - don't expect a fancy setting. That swing said the service was prompt and cordial from the moment I walked in. Despite the white board full of specials I had...

Excellent value, excellent home-made grilled fish tacos. Made to order, comes with two sides. Look for it on the white board - it's not on the menu. If you're going for lunch, go early! They get really crowded.

First off the chips and salsa were homemade and the real deal. I am not a fish taco person but I had a bite of one and I would order those. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp which was excellent. Someone else in the group had breaded shrimp which was amazing. It had light crispy breaking. If I lived in... More

A small, family business, with great food! The shrimp ceviche is the owner's recipe and I bet she guards the recipe with her life. My husband had the grilled fish tacos (2) which were also very tasty, but I was sorry that I had agreed to share our orders :(. Good portion sizes. If we lived closer, this would easily... More

Stopped in after reading such great reviews on Trip advisor. Fish tacos were good but not great. Service was friendly and fast. One problem, oysters. Ordered half a dozen on the shell. The first three were OK....the 4th one was awful and it was unfortunately in my mouth! I have never spit out food that fast. Tasted like something that... More

First of all, beer in a frozen glass. The way I like it! The fish was so fresh. The chips are homemade. It was just a delicious lunch. Try it!

The fish taco is the best ever. Halibut makes the difference. Followed closely by the shrimp tacos. The price is very reasonable and the service is friendly and conscientious.

This place is only a mile from my house but I have never tried it. I was bored and saw the good review on Yelp so.... Quite good. They have several different kinds of ceviche or the "Seven Seas" which I tried. Good sized portion on a flat tortilla shell. Beer is cold and chips are good. Staff is friendly... More
