    The food is way better than El Barco, and it's BYOB (there's a place called Garden Gourmet up the street). Also, Veneno will give you michelada or margarita setups if you ask

    BYOB. I recommend some bubbly to drink with the langostinos. Don't forget the garlic bread to dip into the sauce.

    Really good menu and options. Prices for some things are a bit steep. BYOB makes up for it :-)

    You’re probably already familiar with El Veneno’s practically perfect marlin ceviche, but the shrimp ceviche is even better.

    Try the fried huachinango (red snapper) in the nayarit style. Delish but beware. It is a huge fish!

    This place is so worth the visit. Crest seafood. Try crab legs Nayarit Style. The Chapuzon del mar and steamed fish so worth it.

    For self-induced crab fatality, order the Nayarit style crabs. $30 for a platter large enough to feed 2 people!

    Horrible first experience! We wait 25 minutes to be seated, then 20 mins or so after we are sat, we are told they ran out of crab, then we had to argue to comp our ten dollar bill for the trouble. 👎

  • Elizabeth H.
    Terrible service and the cleanliness is questionable. It took over an hour to be seated when we were told 20-25 mins. The floor was covered with crumbs and cracker wrappers. Seafood was mediocre.
