Really good seafood but be careful about the recipes. For example, oysters Rockefellor was nothing like we know in the states. Locals seemed to eat lots of seafood empanadas (very large) and various types of seafood cocktails. Very professional place, very busy, open air, good prices.

All the seafood here is very good, but be careful with English menu - I ordered snail coctail, but got a squid. The top rating I will give to batterfish baked in salt - absolutely delicious dish. A waiter brings it with salt, separates salt and skin in front of you, and carefully detachs fillet from bones. Also, I would recommend baked shrimps - you may have it before the fish as baking takes time. Bon appetite!

I had high hopes, based on their sister restaurant in Campeche, but it just didn't live up to the original. Great North Beach location, very elegant decor, incredibly attentive service, but the food was just OK. Probably only disappointing because I already knew how good the food is at the Campeche location.

Il Giglio has been in Ciudad del Carmen for more than 15 years and has consistently been the best, almost only, Italian restaurant in Carmen. Owner is Italian and he food is good.
Careful if you are a large party and drink a lot. Waiters or bartender tend to lose count of how many drinks or bottles you had and might end up charging you more.

It was THE PLACE for shrimp but have been changing, not bad but nothing special anymore, sometimes overcrowded and service can be slow ...in the bright side they serve wild and fresh shrimp

I've been a couple of times to Boston's, and even though pizzas seems to be their main push, I was not particularly impressed with them. I did however have an awesome jambalaya fettuccine, right amount of taste and spice.
Plenty of good beer available as well.

Restaurant by day , by night Taqueria Cuts and arracheras in the day are tasty and you can order salads to accompany them and there is an extensive menu of dishes . At night the restaurant becomes taqueria and maintains the same quality : good meat , good taste and good prices. Nice atmosphere and waiters attentive to what you need. Good choice to eat tasty at a good price.
Some friends recommended this place to have lunch or have dinner, my first time was initially bad, it was crowded, we took some time to get a table but later our service, tacos and drinks were so delicious, my family and I were very nice. I asked about their service, meat or main dishes are during mornings until 5:00 pm, tacos after 6:00 pm until midnight. Meat are really good. Mornings I recommend you "Tasajo" ask about it and nights I recommend you sirloin Tacos... Delicious. Enjoy it.

We love the location and the decoration. It is located inside Zentralia Mall. The food is good and the service is ok. We have had horrible experience with the service before. They have nice juices.
If they could improve their service it would be great.
After going there so many times, we just learned that they have 3 products for sale made by local indians:
Marmelade, chocolate and honey.
We bought the jelly and really like it.
Check that out.

This place is a typical Brazilian Rodizio. You get all type of meat (pork, beef, chicken, sausage, etc) and you have a huge salad bar.
Waiters go by your table constantly serving you small portions of different meat, you can eat all that you want.
Prices might seem high considering you're in El Carmen but it's well worth the money.
If you don't like meat this is not a place for you.
