The odd menu translations at these restaurants are a clear indication that the clientele is local. For instance, the tuna sashimi appears as atún fresco con salsa rasurada, or "tuna cut thick with shaved sauce." The tuna is thicker than that in U.S. sushi houses and is served in a shallow dish with soy sauce, micro-thin cucumber slices, sesame seeds, green onions, chili powder, and lime. The ceviche couldn't be fresher, and portions are more than generous. The most popular venue on the marina is always jammed, yet the waitstaff is efficient and friendly, the music plenty loud and tuned to Bob Marley or perhaps Frank Sinatra. There's a small storefront subsidiary in the parking lot at Plaza Marina; the original venue, behind Blockbuster Video in the Hotel Zone, has full seafood plates alongside its ceviches, tacos, and appetizers.
