We loved this place, it is mostly for local people and not so close from the strip, but it is definitely worth it. If you are thinking about going downtown to mercado 28 or the area, take a taxi (Which will be around 5 bucks) and you will love it!! I tried the specialty of the house which is a big seafood soup, a bit like Gumbo, but way better!! Staff is great and they even have an area for children.
