  1. I ate here several times when I was recently there. One of my favorites, as I really like their tres leches cake y pescado entero. I got the shrimp ceviche, but like Pirata and MANY places in PDC, they must cook the shrimp first before adding the lime, so I pass on the shrimp ceviche. it’s tough to find Shrimp ceviche that isn’t cooked first in PDC…
