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!

After driving 11 hours, we unpacked, freshened up and asked the hotel desk clerk to suggest a nearby place for good Mexican food. She directed us across 2 parking lots to Mariscos Altamar. My chicken fajitas were delicious and hubby's steak was great (although he said it wasn't the best ever). Our server was friendly and efficient. The restaurant showcased... More

I have my favorite restaurants I go to when I visit Albuquerque once a year. I found this place on TA and want to thank you for it. I like the food and the service. Always order lobster and always good. I like the plain lobster, without the special sauce. What I like most, is the relaxed atmosphere of the... More

Normally don't have seafood with my Mexican (New Mecico) food, but they do it right. Had shrimp and crab enchiladas that satisfied. Friendly staff in relaxed atmosphere make this a must visit. Many options for dinners. Go with classics or try the seafood for a delicious meal.

We always are wary of returning to a place that was really good the first time because we've been disappointed so many times, but this is a keeper! This is as good a Mexican seafood spot as you'll find, including Mexican beach towns. Service is excellent (thanks, Hector) and you really can't beat the whole fish entrees or the shrimp... More
