On one of our many walks around town we spotted Miriam's, a few small tables outside and a couple inside. My wife had the Nachos and being American I had to try the burger they have advertised. May I just say the burger was outstanding. As a plus it came with a cold beer. So good we stopped back during... More

Located in a neighborhood, sidewalk or indoor dining. We were the only people there. Garlic grilled shrimp (delicious) and grilled fresh fish filet (not sure what kind). Everything was fresh and service was good. Recommend

We ate their for lunch. We had a shrimp and fish ceviche. It was very good and unique flavor. The warm red salsa with homemade chips was a pleasant surprise. The green salsa was habenero and spicy hot but I liked it. My wife had a corvina fish with a creamy cilantro sauce that was very good.

Good guacamole and chips but the lobster empanadas couldn't be choked down. Also, located on a somewhat busy corner if you sit outside.

Cafe Miriam is located a little off the main square, so it's not right in the middle of everything. The owner is super engaging and he basically talked us into coming in, which I'm so thankful for. The guacamole was fabulous, as was the passion fruit sauce - my husband had it on shrimp and I had it on a... More

Small family owned place, everything made to order fresh - nothing already prepared, not even the sauces. The owner was very engaging and friendly. We had a great meal - lime soup (sooo good) lobster with coffee sauce, fish - we loved it.

This place is adorable. The owner waits on you, his family is on the small kitchen cooking your meal! Great fresh seafood selection, he was picking out the fresh fish to serve for dinner from the fisherman himself while we were in there! Creative menu with seafood and Mexican choices. Cute, romantic little house, indoor and outdoor dining. Incredible prices... More

Flavorful and nice ambience. We had the fish with the passion fruit sauce and some empanadas after a long bike ride. Enjoyed the street scene of passerbys.
