We dropped in for a beer & snack while walking the Av Camaron Sabalo to the Av del Mar. Five stars for cold beers, shrimp ceviche & smoked Marlin tacos at a great price. Not great signage & to confirm previous review, is called Alawa Mariscos a la Orilla del Mar.

It's right on... More

Now called Alana. Good mediocre at best. Menu translations are poor and confusing. Server had limited English so my husband did not get the meal he ordered. Nice setting but only one other table occupied at 6:00 pm.

We just wanted to have a snack and definitely wanted to try ceviche and popped in to this place. We sat right by the beach and watched the sun set. We shared just one order of fish ceviche and for the price we had a huge plate of fresh ceviche to share. They bring hot sauce, tostada and crackers. It... More

Just stopped in and then I saw the menu for the dish with Borracho Sauce with the melted cheese and shrimp in it. Now every year I have to go there and eat this.

This is a great place to watch the sunset! Good seafood. They do have a kids menu which was nice. We had the seafood sampler which had a little bit of everything including delicious octopus! I was a little disappointed with my tuna but everyone else loved their meals! Oh, and delicious margaritas!!!!

Not sure what prices are but kudos to them for sitting a solo at a six place table so I can watch my 12 year old in the surf. Thank you Alawa! 💋
