“Great Fish Foods”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

El Muelle 17 is perhaps the best fish-food restaurant in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico, or so say my relatives here. From my own experience yesterday, I probably agree. I sampled several of its appetizers, like "taco al pastor de pescado" (fish taco), "taco de marlin" (another type of fish taco but probably smoked and much tastier), and "tostada de atún" (raw tuna fish). I also had a "filete de pescado a la parrilla" or grilled fish fillet. The latter came with nopales, a ubiquitous and tasty Mexican cactus, and rice or baked potato. I'd go with the rice, which was great tasting. The appetizers were great, but my top two were the marlin taco and, especially, the tuna tostada. The latter was so good I had to have another one. To cap it all up, the banana cake was good (although too much Philadelphia cream and too little banana for my taste). But make no mistake: stick to the fish dishes and you can hardly go wrong.

“Best Seafood in Monterrey”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

The best seafood that I've found in Monterrey so far. The shrimp Chili Tau is excellent, as is the ceviche. Also tried the shrimp tacos and the marlin tacos, both excellent. Service is also very good, and the beer is always ice cold. Prices are fair.

“Discover Treasures of Water.”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

This restaurant offers you fresh and delicious simple food. Seafood is nourishing and perfect for hot days. The Muelle 17 has very good service, not very spicy food and the price is very reasonable. Besides it is located in a nice place. Enjoy it..!
