The food was ok however it took over 2 hours to get our order. We have a baby and we asked the waitress for the food multiple times and they always had some bad excuses. I wouldn’t recommend it

The was a fish hook in one of the dishes and I was lucky enough not to swallow it or break a tooth --I only scraped my palate. The waitress immediately took the hook away from me to show it to the chef who came to the table to apologize. However, there was no deduction of the dish with the fish hook nor discount of any sort.

Hi Claire, thanks so much for visiting. We did not charge the octopus dish as you can see on your detailed invoice. If you need a copy emailed let us know. We also reached out to out seafood vendor and mentioned the problem, as this is very rare especially when hooks are not used for these. It had to be well inside the meat for the team not to notice it. Please see me on your next visit, I was the person that helped out with the check at the end and also one of the owners. Best,

El sabor de la comida es muy buena, te dan ganas de regresar a volver a probarla. Me gusta la idea que es un tipo de comida Mexicana con el estilo de Baja Med y los mariscos son super frescos. La coctelería es con ingredientes distintos a los que había probado y de una calidad en licores exquisita ... SUPER RECOMENDADO. VOLVERE MIL VECES MAS!

Not your traditional “Mexican” restaurant, as they only have seafood. No chips, salsa or guacamole. I thought the prices were a little high, based upon the serving sizes. However, the tacos we had were really good. I’d eat there again, but I wouldn’t go out if my way to.

BEST SEAFOOD RESTAURANT in town. While everyone else is doing the same safe dishes, these guys are innovating and doing an amazing job at it! Being from Baja myself, I can 100% testify that these flavors make me feel right back at home! Would definitely recommend to everyone.

To be honest, I was so thrilled the first time, everything was amazing.. The following week was a totally different experience. The food was not the same and the service was awful.... to top it off, when I arrived i was the only person seated... I don’t understand what went wrong.. sadness for me...

What a find. I've never had tuna like that anywhere. The cuisine is inventive. The cocktails! Everything is so fresh. Do not miss the dulce de leche dessert. It's transcendent. You'd never put all those different ingredients together but they work beautifully.

HIDDEN GEM! Every single item on the menu is like nothing you’ll find anywhere else in Miami. The Pulpo Altozano and the grilled Oysters with Machaca are insane! For a quick and fresh bite, the Tostadas are perfect. Moving on to dessert, the Dulce de Leche Pot de Creme blows everyone’s mind every single time! Wide selection of Mezcales for very unique cocktails and they also have Happy Hour specials during the week! Definitely recommend!
