    This restaurant is off the beaten path of the Strip but well worth the 10 minute drive. Some of the best ceviche we’ve ever had started our meal & set the tone for everything being as fresh as possible. Yes fish in the desert - it’s amazing! Our dinners were recommended by the waiter (might be the owner from his command of the place!). Fantastic food - shrimp sautéed in a tomato sauce with peppers & onions along with rice and beans - amazing - and a flank steak with incredible seasoning & beans & rice. The whole experience was incredible & we highly recommend this restaurant!

    Food did not disappoint it was so delicious!! Totally would recommend and do not regret getting off from strip. Only negative I can come up with is the lack of cocktails but a beer did the job and they do offer wine selection.

    Best Mexican Food Ever. Gourmet! I was here on business and randomly picked a place to have dinner with clients. We took an Uber there and were a bit apprehensive as it was in an old mini mall. We decided to give it a try because we had plans that evening. Well, much to our surprise, the table literally went silent when we each took our first bite of appetizers. It was beyond delicious and flavorful. Each taco had its own unique taste. One of us had been to Mexico City many times and had eaten at the best restaurants there and said it superseded the best. We ended up talking about the meal all night. Everything we ordered was delicious. They do not sell alcohol but you could bring your own wine, beer. Highly recommend! Rarely will take time to write a review here but this restaurant was well deserving of a good one. We will definitely go back and have told our colleagues who also go to Vegas on business from time to time and fine dine everywhere there. It is a small, not far off strip, unique find.

    We were visiting Vegas from ATL for the weekend. I booked the reservation via Opentable for my husband and I for early Friday afternoon. As we pulled into the parking lot, we thought we had made a high mistake. Lol. But instead, it turned out to be one of the best experience of our weekend! The food was OUTSTANDING!!! It is cooked to order and super fresh. It was some of best tasting food we have had in a long time. Although restaurant is in a strip mall, it could easily compete with any 4-5 star restaurant in Atlanta. John, the owner, is wonderful. He recommended dishes and chatted with us with we were old friends. We highly recommend this restaurant. We loved this place and highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

    Came for a buddy’s bday with 4 others. All I have to say is you better try this place before it’s so busy you can’t get a table. It will happen, this place will be difficult to get into because it’s that great. Must try tuna tostadas, the ceviche (somewhat unique & bursting with flavor), and the octopus. Don’t miss this gem!

    Just get past the exterior and walk into a cozy ambiance with great service and even better food. Trust me you will be happy you did. The quality & presentation of this menu is equivalent to any LV strip restaurant. The chicharrones appetizer & branzino were perfectly prepared.

    Food is unique and outstanding. Area the restaurant is in is a little funky and the restaurant decor is pretty basic, but the food is great—nothing like it on the Strip. Moderately priced. Try the Ribeye Chicheron or the Tuna tostadas — they are excellent. The branzino was great too! Service was friendly and attentive.

    Wow! Took the risk with this new restaurant and simply loved it! High quality ingredients, great flavors. Tuna Tostada and Octopus Pibil to die for. Ceviche was also good.

    Really surprised and impressed at what they had to offer. Eating here was such a treat! The service was warm and welcoming and the food was top notch! It wasn't too busy when we came in and we got a chance to meet with the owners. I would normally be wary about trying seafood at a place like this but everything was so fresh and delicious. Even the steak and avocado was high quality. I can't believe that something like this exists in a strip mall! Great value for what you get. On the Strip or on the west side, this would be at least 2-3 times the price.

    My brother came in to town and we thought we would take him to this New Mexican restaurant we heard about. We were so happy we did because the food was absolutely amazing. We ordered so many different things to try and they each had their own amazing flavor. Their shrimp tacos are my absolute favorite. We ordered Tuna Sashimi, Octopus Pibil, Shrimp Tacos, Pastor Mahi Tacos, Tuetano/Bone Marrow, Chicharron de Ribeye, and the Pan Fried Whole Fish. We also got a specialty dessert, fried ice cream that was amazing! I absolutely recommend this place!

    All I can say is everything was amazing. This place is still opening, and I think we were one of the first lucky guests to find it. The chef and owner had time to talk to us and even brought us a tasting of their Pastor Mahi Taco which was to die for. I will be going back to pick those up for my next gathering. We had the Tuna Sashimi which was as fresh as I get it anywhere in Vegas for a fraction of the cost, loved it. Then we had the Fresco’s Ceviche which is a little different then I expected not just a traditional lime and cilantro ceviche it has a richer and more complex flavors more depth to the flavor combinations. I found that to be surprising something I would find at a high-end Strip restaurant. Speaking of Strip restaurants, they have nothing on the ribeye at this place. I will definitely be going back to try more of the seafood with my family but there will always be a ribeye on the table to share. The steak really was one of the best I’ve had, and I’ve eaten at most the big-name steak houses in Vegas. Almost forgot the octopus it was tender, flavorful, and again a very unique and delicious presentation. I recommend everyone try this place. Right now, you probably don’t need a reservation but I’m sure you will soon.

    If you are looking for Mexican style seafood this is your place! This is not your typical Mexican seafood just by the presentation alone you know it's something special. Each dish brings a burst of flavor unlike anything I've ever tasted. If you are not a seafood lover there are other options like the tacos and chicharrón de rib eye. A perfect place for families and celebrations or just for taco Tuesday. This little hole in the wall will not disappoint!

    Mariscos el Fresco’sResponded on June 1, 2022Thank you so much! We really appreciate your feedback. We love Mexican Food and Seafood equal so we thought we should make a menu that showed that very love.
