Fodor's Expert Review Santos Mariscos
This unglamorous cantina, marked by a string of Christmas lights dangling over the patio, is a tribute to masked wrestling champion El Santo. Its reasonable prices, retro decor (picture rainbow lawn chairs and sculptures of the Virgin Mary holding plastic roses), plus surprisingly good food attract locals who work in the Hotel Zone. Menu highlights include fried cheese tacos and shrimp tacos with seven types of sauces. Tamarindo margaritas are also very refreshing. A bright red bar dominates the downstairs, and upstairs there's a dining area with a small outdoor patio.
This isn’t a fine-dining spot, so don't be surprised if the one waiter on staff serves you in stages.
