“Excellent Fish Tacos and Ceviche!”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

This small restaurant is a favorite of the locals and gets very busy on weekend afternoons due to the fresh fish, octopus, shrimp and clam dishes on the menu. All tables are outdoors but in the shade. The Tostada Especial is tremendous and made right in front of you utilizing the freshest of ingredients . The Fish Tacos are the best we've found in Todos Santos and the hot Shrimp and Octopus soup is also excellent. Located on Del Huerto which is the first right turn coming into Todos Santos from the South.

“All their seafood is good, but their Ceviche de Pescado is excellent!”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

If you have a craving for ceviche de pescado (fresh fish marinated in citrus), then you need to go to Compa Chava. You’ll receive a platter of super-fresh, citrus-cooked white fish tumbled with garlic, tomatoes, onions and cilantro and scooped up with thick Mexican tortilla chips. Easily enough for two or three people.

For their refreshing seafood cocktails, you can watch them chop the garlic, celery, onion and tomato to order and then they add their home made chilled shellfish broth. I saw many people ordering this.

Their Salsa Picante is super-fresh and is ground in the stone mortar on the counter. It is served when you place your order and also includes their avocado sauce and a selection of salsa & hot sauces.

You can't go wrong ordering any of the incredible fish or seafood dishes: ceviche, seafood soup, tacos, tostadas, shrimp dishes and Campechana. All are ultra-fresh and good. The only one that didn’t ‘float my boat’ was their crab ceviche, but then I’m spoiled with Dungeness crab where I live.

Once you order, all of these delectable delights can be washed down with an ice-cold beer.

Located across from the high school on Del Huerto, Compa Chava is a favorite among locals and tourists alike.
