Pros: Good Mexican food. Reasonable prices. Lots of families. Wandering guitarist singing on Friday night. What's not to like. Cons: Not fancy. Lots going on so don't expect to have a romantic candlelight dinner.

We were traveling through. Parking lot was full and upon entering noticed many families and "locals" eating there. That always says a lot for a place. Their green salsa that comes with chips is awesome with a good touch of heat. I had chicken enchiladas. They were loaded with a lot of meat, tender. The portions were large and not... More

This place was great. We had the carnitas and mixed seafood enchiladas. Both were awesome! My husband said the carnitas reminded him of his grandma's. The seafood enchiladas were not the cream based kind which meant they weren't too rich. And the Spanish rice was the best we think we have ever had.

We have eaten here three times in the last month, and we have had great service and delicious food each time. So glad we found great ceviche in our dessert city. The ceviche is not too tangy, and it comes with a few slices of avocado and some extra limes to squeeze on top. We have been ordering the carne... More

Went to dinner here one night during a business trip. The service was friendly and fast and the food was wonderful. I had the chicken enchiladas with the red sauce and the deep fried cheesecake for desert. I highly recommend Mariscos Altamar if you come to Albuquerque.

The jalapeño stuffed bacon wrapped shrimp was tasty, although a bit overdone. The rice, beans, and lettuce was rice, beans, and lettuce, just like every other Mexican restaurant that covers the plate with rice, beans, and lettuce. I am tired of rice, beans, and lettuce.

Marisco's has high quality Mexican food. It''s easy to find a Mexican restaurant in Albuquerque,but not so easy finding one with food that stands out. Marisco's does it!
