Fish is an afterthought at many restaurants in Mexico City—not a surprise, as the capital city is hundreds of miles from either ocean. Chef José Luis Uribe makes seafood the star at this restaurant in the southern suburb of San Ángel. The fish soup, scented with olive oil, clams, and chunks of tender fish, is a great starter, as are the tostadas piled high with shredded crab. For your entree, your server will suggest the pescado del día al carbon, the catch of the day grilled over an open flame. There are other choices, but this is one place where your seafood shouldn't hide under a heavy sauce. The dining room is open and airy, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows on several sides. If the evening is fine, ask for a table on the terrace.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 1:30 to 11:30 pm, Sundays 1:30 to 6 pm.
