We worked in Veracruz for about 2 months, and frequented Mardel during our trip, at least once per week. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Veracruz! All of the food we tried there is excellent, however the Ribeye Steak and fresh Seafood selection really stand out. They also have an excellent wine list, one of the best we... More

Food was great and Victor gave us great service. Location is superb. We tried the Robalo enchipotlado and the shrimp. He had a glass of wine and a beer. perfect view and 10 min walk from the Aquarium. Worth trying.

I ate here two breakfasts. My favorite was the Enchiladas Suizas with green sauce and filled with picadillo. Delicous! The service was good, the views are nice. Not too far from the Aquarium if you want to avoid all the palapa restaurants near there.

We saw this restaurant while riding on a tour bus. We liked the location, beach front. Victor, our waiter was very accommodating and helpful and the food very good. Our drinks were also very good. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to my friends. Ranchochic

It was expensive and not particularly great food- mostly fried things. The patio was closed and so we had to sit inside which was FREEZING. You're much better off going to the zocalo and finding a place around there.

Granted it is not the cheapest restaurant you can find in Mexico but it was worth every cent. We read about the restaurant in the Lonely planet guide and checked it out. I had a Lasagna with seafood and it was very delicious. I would definitely recommend it anytime. The service was really good and we have been adviced for... More

It was recommended by a friend, and we enjoyed it very much. The waiter was good and spoke English. We would eat here again. They made an excellent monitoring and the wine was very good.
