Just before the cemetery we noticed this place. It was cute and looked well maintained. We wandered in to have a look. It was about 2:00 in the afternoon and the place was packed with locals. Intrigued, we went in to investigate further. We talked to one of the waiters. He told us that they are open until 7:00 and that one of their specialties was lionfish. He showed us the menu. (I have a picture if I can figure out how to post!) On the way out, we noticed a truck of theirs with their logo and advertizing. I think they must also be seafood purveyors for the local restaurants. And there was a line advertizing sustainable fishing. Always a good thing.
We had been wanting to try lionfish, so we came back about 6:00 for dinner. It was still quite busy. We both ordered the Pez leon entero - the whole fish for 75.00. Before they brought the entree, they served us chips and mixed seafood ceviche. The only other place where I have enjoyed cheviche is San Carlos. This was every bit as good, if not better. The lion fish arrived. It was absolutely delicious! It came with rice, beans and vegetables - all nicely seasoned. The meal was more than generous enough for me.
All of this and served under a lovely palapa roof. The locals at the table next to us seemed to be celebrating some event. Their food kept coming out, botanas style. Each dish looking better than the last.
We will definitely be back!
