Tostada de Mariscos ($39 Pesos, 10:1 Us$ exchange rate) was full of fresh Pulpo (octopus) on top of a crunchy tostada chip.
Empada de Camaron con Queso ($82) was full of fresh shrimp and deep fried. Crunch and very good.
Fish Cerviche ($45 Half order or $90) was huge with tons of white fish. Sauce was a bit too spicy though. We ordered the half order, you can see how big it was.
Especialidad de la casa Camaron ($70 Small) was a soupy mixture of small shrimp, avacado and broth. Kinda bland, but very light.
They sell cheap ($15) beer. This restaurant serves good food of very good value, with marginal service, all in an busy and noisy atmosphere. Marisco 8 Tostada is a good place to go if you are staying in the Marina Vallarta area.
