We would like to first thank our reader Cheryll for letting us know about this place. She wrote to us about El Calamar de la 10 and said how good it was. So we went to check it out and are reporting back to all of you.

Cheryll was right in saying how good this place is! El Calamar de la 10 is a local seafood restaurant with gourmet taste and good staff. They have a large menu and have been working on finalizing everything that they will have on it.

If you go her you can get a good spot to watch people and passerby’s. We recommend ordering around on the menu and trying a few things so you get a variety or menu items.  Then you can go back and get your favorites the next time.
