“Better than ever.....”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

My girlfriend had a clam tostada and fish stew. The tostada had so many fresh raw clams that she could barely finish. The fish stew was a medium size and chock full of marlin, octopus, calamari, clams and tuna. (After a few spoonfuls she took the rest to go..) Absolutely excellent. I ordered a 1/4 kilo of crack and peel shrimp. 2 Negra Modelos and 1 Modelo Especial. 20 dollars. Amazing. Great restaurant and full of people on a Wednesday afternoon. 5 stars. Provecho. The portions are so generous that ordering several dishes and sharing is the way to go - especially in a group.

“From a taco stand to a 200 seat restaurant...”
Reviewed 16 July 2011

You gotta be doing something right. And El Primo Nava is firing on all cylinders. The staff are friendly and helpful, the cerveza is ice cold and the seafood; fresh marlin, tuna, octopus, shrimp, clams, oysters, sea bass. It's hard to spend more than 10 dollars. The kilo of crack and peel shrimp is 120 pesos. My Mexican friends think this is the best Mariscos in Ensenada and I wholeheartedly agree. Closes pretty early. Try late afternoon. A block from the Caliente casino and Broncos steakhouse. Provecho.
