features

Great value, Local haunt, Casual

Locals and visitors flock to this open-air restaurant for the ceviche. The marinated seafood options include shrimp, fish, octopus, and snail, and comes in three sizes—though if you’re planning on ordering other dishes, the small will easily feed multiple people. The rest of the menu is well worth saving stomach room for. Each meal starts with tortilla chips and a meaty seafood dip, and the tacos (served until 5 p.m.) are delightful—we particularly loved the marinated guajillo octopus tacos, garnished simply with lettuce and a slice of avocado. If you're with a group, the whole fried fish is a steal, too. It comes with rice, beans, salsa, vegetables, and tortillas so you can build your own tacos.
