The place is right on the beach, the perfect place for a dinner with well prepared seafood. Order a whole fish (they carry a few options, depending on the catch of the day), it takes some time to be ready, but a cool beer does the job.

We enjoyed our meal immensely, went for dinner in late November 2016. It was a weekend night, and the place was hopping! Very well staffed with a huge seafood menu, despite the crowds we were seated promptly with no reservations, and the atmosphere was lively and well arranged. We had the pargo Mojo de Ajo and the grilled shrimp plate,... More

Everybody talks about this restaurant because is one of the oldest in town. I used to go to the very first one when I was a child. So this new one just in front of the beach offers a nice ambiance in a "palmera tree" made building with a great view of the beach. The music is always good and... More

Bottom line, you can't go wrong. We came here at (Mexican) lunch time just before Christmas so the place was full with local Godinez (office workers) celebrating. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal, with starters of Pescado Villa Rica (a fish paté), oyster shots in different sauces, fish empanadas and raw oysters (which in Mexico always are dresses with lime)....

This is the Flag Ship of all in their resturants in the Veracruz-Boca Del Rio area of Veracruz. Both the quality of the food and sevice is first class. Menue choices are 99% sea food based, so if you are thinking of a Rib-Eye think again..

A taxi driver directed us to this place when we asked for a recommendation for a good seafood restaurant. The restaurant is palapa style (open air, thatched roof) with some outdoor seating, directly on the beach---very nice view. Everyone in our party enjoyed their dinner, but I ordered the whole huachinango (red snapper) deep fried and it was excellent. The... More

I have been to Veracruz a couple of times, and one thing that sticks out to me is that almost every restaurant has the same menu. I don't know if that's because there is a lot of fishing/seafood there, or if restaurants that deviate from traditional dishes don't do as well, or any number of other reasons there could be....
