Seafood in Veracruz City

Food – and this restaurant in particular – is reason enough to make the pilgrimage to Boca del Río. Fish is the all-encompassing ingredient, from camarones enchipotlados (smoky chipotle shrimp) to stuffed sea bass, and the beachside service is attentive. More than a few people say it serves the best seafood in Veracruz, and we concur.

There's a second branch at Gran Hotel Diligencias on the zócalo.
