We were in Puerto Vallarta, looking for lunch — quick, reasonably priced and good — when Russ remembered Marisma Fish Taco behind Plaza Neptuno. Marisma is one of the places we take guests when we want to give them a real Mexican, fish taco-eating time. They are never disappointed.
Tacos at Marisma Fish Taco, made with Mahi Mahi, and accompanied by three different salsas, gives us another reason to count our blessings that we live in Mexico. Where else can we eat a couple of fish tacos for nine pesos each, pay for our lunch with a fifty peso note, and then stroll along the marina admiring the fancy yachts?
In search of real Mexican food, real Mexican prices, and good service? Marisma comes through on all counts. It's nice to find a little place popular with the locals that is doing its best to make every taco memorable.
Taco choices include fish fillet, shrimp, crab, smoked marlin and spicy squid, the latter a specialty of Marisma, the owner. You can also choose from shrimp quesadillas, shrimp, smoked marlin, or fish fillet burritos, as well as a few non-seafood option. All prices are reasonable.
