Las Islas is different from our many Mexican restaurants with their emphasis on seafood. The cerviche is great. I had a seafood "cocktail" which is really a large serving of delicious cold fish soup, chock full of bites - loved it!

Food was fair and service a bit slow despite the fact that they were not that busy. Considering the prices this place doesn't have much atmosphere. While the cuisine is certainly not your usual Mexican food we thought the seafood was somewhat mediocre. Based on...More

I think they could, but I would call the restaurant . We sat outside and it seemed there was seating on outside for 25/ maybe 30; and there were quite a few tables inside.
