San Carlos Bay Seafood Restaurant Restaurant Review

: If you are fishing for Mexican seafood, this is your sweet spot. Starters like the seafood cocktail with fresh shrimp or octopus in a cilantro-spiked marinade set the place apart. Most of the entrées, such as the shrimp endiablado, come blazing with exotic spices. A milder choice, but no less tasty, is the harmonious Seven Seas Stew. Most things never change here, which is exactly how it should be, but in a very welcome update, the restaurant now accepts credit cards.
