Was not impressed with cerviche! Had no flavor. They were kind enough to take off the bill. Also, kids menu only has two items and are not reflective of a Mexican restaurant. My wife had a very good fish and shrimp combination in a camarone culichi. Chips, salsa and margaritas were very good.

The ceviche is fresh and delicious; my boyfriend and I got a small, and it was plenty as an appetizer for two. Listen to the recommendations because the house specials are really yummy, and while their deep fried stuff is good, the fish that isn't deep fried is so much better--experience the real flavor! My boyfriend ordered the dish with... More

We went to Mariscos for lunch. It is a cute place - busy because of the great food. It always bothers me when there is no lunch menu, when you have to pay dinner prices for lunch - not even a lunch special. Our server was great, very friendly and always there when we needed him. My friend ordered the... More

Great place for shrimp and oysters and fish but beware it is very popular so be prepared to wait or go early. Prices are extremely reasonable for first rate cooking, very good portion size, and friendly and efficient service. We have been to many local Tucson Mexican restaurants and this place ranks up there at the top. Be sure to... More

Simply the best! Stunningly tasty food. The camarones culichi, the whole fried fish, the stuffed chillies, the ceviche, all of it is just delicious! Generous serves. The casual ambience is delightful. Attentive service with a smile. Each and every visit! Thank you Cirillo! Please open a branch in Australia.

I went to this Mariscos Chihuahua restaurant for the first time with a large group of friends this past Tuesday. We were seated in a smaller room to the rear of the building. The service was prompt and friendly. Since we were a large group I did not see what everyone ordered, but those around me all enjoyed their meal.... More

Very friendly staff and a great place to eat. I had the Shrimp Culichi which was very good. Nothing fancy, but solid Mexican food.

Stepping into Mariscos Chihuahua (Seafood of Chihuahua) is as authentic Mexico as you are going to get in Tucson or anywhere else north of the border, but don't ask for a burrito, taco, chimichanga, or any other American-Mexican standards (chimichangas are a Tucson invention in any case). This is a seafood house, as even the most unobservant should divine from... More

Mariscos Chihuahua is in not on the "main streets" so it is easily missed. Thankfully it was on the way between our hotel and my son's apartment... it has a very comfortable atmosphere (your neighborhood diner feel), the service is exceptionally friendly and the food is AMAZING!!! The salsa is top notch... created a big risk of overeating before the... More
