Mariscos is just a small place in a strip mall and has little atmosphere, but the food is worth multiple visits. I order the seafood fajitas, which had shrimp, fish, and squid. They came with all the fixings and three tortillas (could have use more or bigger ones)--you got the choice of flour or corn. My companion also enjoyed his... More

I have been checking out the available Mexican restaurants in the Venice/Sarasota area, looking for good carnitas. Today I had the carnitas here and they have been the best I've had anywhere! The pork was so tender that it fell apart. Plus it was not sweetened with citrus....just good pork flavor. The tortillas were obviously homemade, and had a great... More

My husband and I were looking for a restaurant similar to one we used to frequent in another city. Although similar, this restaurant turned out to be even better. The food is SO good - quite the variety. Even the complimentary salsa is delicious. We went on Tuesday around 6:00, it wasn't too crowded and our meals came out quickly.... More

We had the chicken enchelladas the chicken with mole and the fajitas. The food was all very good. The mole was the only item which could have been better. The flavor of the mole was not as good as other places. Overall, I would go there again but just refrain from ordering a mole dish.

We sought this out because of the reviews . No cocktails , but a creative white wine margarita . Great tamales to start . Downhill from there . The items on the plates that we ordered were a little disappointing . My husband was craving chimichanga . It was tiny and didn't seem fried . My items had very dry... More

Always busy. Staff very efficient and the food is delicious and the best part it's not pricey! I always enjoy the carne asada or the fish ceviche of course, accompanied by a delightful margarita with extra lime juice!!

This tiny Mexican restaurant is a true gem. It is across the road from Ed Smith stadium so a great place for before or after a game meal. The food is freshly made and very tasty. We had steak tampiquena and steak slices in a green sauce. Both were exceptional. Staff was great, prices are reasonable and menu has lots... More
