Cockteleria Rodimar-seafood as local as you can get!

Cockteleria Rodimar A medium plate of fish ceviche, chips and a beer.

This simple little restaurant is as local as it gets! In fact we have passed by this place thinking it was someone’s house. There is not even a sign outside. We only learned about it because A local names Armando told us about it.

This is the type of place that has been around for years and nothing has changed on the menu, it is just simple food served up daily, and in this case it is seafood. They have plastic tables and chairs and is the type of place you have a beer with your seafood. There ceiling fans running to cool the place and one wall is lined with a colorful underwater mural that will keep your eyes busy while you wait for your food (although service is quite fast here).

The menu

There are seafood soups, ceviches that range from 100 pesos to 210 pesos, seafood cocktails that range from 70 pesos to 120 pesos, plates with things liked fried fish for 100 pesos, seafood tacos are 14 pesos each, beer is 25 pesos.

The food here is basic and no revolutionalty recipes, just humble food, decent prices and a really local feel which some people seek out. We do reccomend the ceviches over the tacos. Even though in the photo below the taco looks good, the ceviche is better. The quality of the food is good here.
