You have alot of options to choose from and you cant go wrong when you see alot of locals eating here. We were in fact, introduced to this place by a local. Really fresh seafood and full of flavour. My favourite was of course the shrimp cocktails. They have a variety of sauces you can add to your food. Great... More

A lot of locals eat here, which is always a good recommendation! The seafood was so fresh, prepared to order, just delicious. The atmosphere isn't great, no A/C, fairly noisy. And the prices were pretty high for the location. But the food was worth it!

Really good seafood but be careful about the recipes. For example, oysters Rockefellor was nothing like we know in the states. Locals seemed to eat lots of seafood empanadas (very large) and various types of seafood cocktails. Very professional place, very busy, open air, good prices.

The restaurant offered a quick service and quality seafood. The only problem was the portions of some dishes were small.

They have not too much options, the food is average and the prices are also reasonable. This place is of seafood and nothing too special. We tried dessert and that was the best of the food. We arrived just before meal time so we didn't have to wait, but it was full!

You can't expect a high gourmet meal in Coctelería Cajún, but in Carmen, is one of the best seafood restaurant if you compare with the rest of them. The relation between service-food-price in 4/5.

The decor looks cheap, the service is slow because is a busy spot, but the food taste is good comparing with other restaurants. So, is worth to try.

Great fresh seafood with homely taste, parking can be difficult and service sometimes slow but totally worth it

A few years back there would be fresh seafood carts serving tasty and cheap treats right by the water, now the city licenses about 10 funky installations of not exactly international standard. Cajun serves the same as all others, relatively small cocteles of limited seafood with 30% KETCHUP at legit restaurant prices. We were appalled by the creepiness of it... More

The seafood here is great, I specially loved my shrimp cocktail. The downside of this restaurant is that it is usually packed, and the service is a bit slow, plus there is no air con, so you can get pretty sweaty waiting for your food. Another thing to keep in mind is that the place is not fancy at all,... More
