Fodor's Review

The seafood is fresh at this open-air eatery, and the clientele is lively—often joining in song with the musicians who stroll among the tables. If you've had a wild night, try the vuelva a la vida, or "return to life" (conch, oysters, shrimp, octopus, calamari, and fish with a hot tomato sauce). The kitchen serves crab (stuffed, steamed, or fried) and whole-fried fish that's crispy outside and moist inside. The ceviche and spicy shrimp soup are also good, though the quality can be inconsistent. Located at the bustling Mercado Veintiocho, this no-frills local favorite is open from 9 am to 7 pm.
