We stopped here for lunch during one of our excursions. Great location on 5th Avenue, friendly staff and delicious food. We ordered the special of the day, which was red snapper, and we were not disappointed. It was the whole fish, we shared, and still...couldn’t eat it all. Great place to people watch, if you sit near the entrance. We were also blessed with entertainment by a young man playing the xylophone to some 80’s hit, really nice. Our meal was a little pricey because it was based on the weight of the fish, but it was worth every dollar!! Would definitely visit againMore

Our experience was great from the start. From the host who sat us and Jacobo our server. Great food and drinks. We came on a Sunday and was able to watch the cowboy game with my husband. I can't wait to come back!

My daughter, grand child and me were eating there, as I desired fish restaurant was fully booked. But we had some great experience there too. Great sea food and fish. We started with Tostada del Pacifico, which was a delicious mixture - amazing and totally...unexpected. The girls then had ceviche de camaron and I had shrimp with coconut - yummy. I was the only one with space for a dessert - I had the Maracuya cream and it high-lighted the evening. All thumbs up for the Fisheria - nice job. The service was very attentive - I personally think, there's too much neon light in the restaurant - yes, they want to give it a modern touch, but a good cuisine like this one might not need this?More

On a street where everyone wants your attention, this place is where it’s at! Delicious fresh seafood and wonderful service (Jacob was attentive and friendly). This place was recommended by a friend from Mexico and it didn’t disappoint. In our group we ordered the ceviche...del dia, atun (tuna) tostada, fish tacos, shrimp tacos and friend shrimp tostada. Everything was delicious and large portions too. Would definitely recommend to friends/family and would go back again. PS the bathrooms are clean and a fun under the swimming pool theme- cute idea.More

Charming decor, dockside. Great seafood menu. My husband had the octopus and I had the three tacos. Each one was different and filling. I had the Mexican martini because I like mezcal. Well made. We tried the chorus but too full to enjoy them.More

My wife and I stopped for a quick bite with our daughter (a year and a half old) for a quick snack. We were greated warmly and quickly brought a warm seafood broth with chips and a couple sauces. Our server, Jacob, was attentive without...being overly present, it was perfect. We shared the coconut shrimp and it was, without a doubt the best coconut shrimp my wife or I had ever had. If you're looking for a lovely place to stop for a bite on 5th I would highly recommend it.More

We stopped here on a quick trip to Playa and it was a big hit! Try the pescadillas as an appetizer or main course- they are crispy fish tacos with lots of flavor and crunch!

We came here a couple nights ago and we were intrigued by La Fisheria and we were greeted warmly and had our two girls with us. The manager was obviously there overseeing F everything. We were immediately given a menu, chips with two different sauces...which was super yummy and a fish gazpacho type of hot drink when we sat down. Such a pleasant surprise! My husband and I ordered spicy margaritas which was made for us table side and the manager was watching the girl carefully. The margaritas were absolutely fantastic. My girls had the pasta, my husband had octopus and I had the fish tacos. We left raving about it and looking forward to coming back with our friends. However, we took our friends last night into Playa as we raved about it so they wanted to try it. We were absolutely horrified, there was no manager and all the staff were hanging about doing nothing in an empty restaurant. We were given the chips but no hot gazpacho and it took forever to get our orders. We were already concerned so just decided to do drinks and not food. We had raved about the spicy margaritas we had two nights prior so we ordered that but it was not made tableside like last time and we all started drinking it and it was completely inedible and so spicy it was burning our tongues and mouths. It was the worst margarita we’ve had. The waiter was not going to re-do them despite us saying it was completely inedible. We finally got new margarita replacements but it was not spicy at all and tasted like it had zero alcohol and the staff was watching us. We felt uncomfortable and paid and left. We were so embarrassed we raved initially about this place and the second time was horrible!More
