I love seafood and I love Mexican food. So basically this place is a dream for me. The food is amazing. The service was great. And they had amazing drinks. I had their cocktail of the night and it was some pineapple tequila goodness. I loved it. And their lobster special was unreal. We ordered oysters with a mescal mignonette and they were some of the best oysters I've ever had. That mignonette was unreal. I'd go back just for those haha. My friend had the sea bass and also loved it. My boyfriend isn't a big fish eater so he tried the tacos al carbon and said they were some of the best he's ever had. All in all this is a solid place for drinks and amazing Mexican food. Definitely go check it out. Oh and it's in the best stretch of Ventura Blvd so hit up some of the bars around there afterwards for a night cap!
