Knowing how much we like Mexican food wherever we travel, our daughter and son-in-law had built up our expectations about Marieta's. Then we arrived. Parking - limited and awkward. Dining room - depending on where you were seated, you feel like you're seated in the entrance. Staff - very attentive and professional, almost out of proportion to the rest of... More

I will preface this review by saying the service was fast and friendly and the restaurant was clean. The food was bland - I had the arroz con pollo - really no flavor at all. My husband and our two friends both said their food was bland. We gave it a try but definitely won't be back.

I eat at a lot of Mexican restaurants and this one was pretty good but I have had much better. The margarita was very good. Clean but over decorated. Staff is friendly but for the restaurant being so empty at the time the service was slow. It is the best Mexican restaurant in the area that I've found so far.

While visiting my sister this week we went to a local Mexican favorite of hers. I ordered the Chili Colorado, the meal came with a slow cooked marinated diced beef, refried beans, rice and fresh made tortillas. The flavor of the beef was extremely good, the refried beans were awesome and the rice good as well. I eat at Mexican... More

Needed to find a restaurant to meet with a friend near the Paintball Park. Decided on Marietas, and it was amazing! Very cute inside, comfortable seating and cute decor. Extremely good service and delicious food. A true find in this part of Oceanside.

Was introduced to this amazing place by local friends- and I can't thank them enough! Greeted at the door like an old friend, shown to a great table, and before I knew it, there were nachos, salsa and marinated carrotts- I had never seen these before, but they tasted amazing. The mains were just as spectacular, all washed down with... More
