Ok, 1st time here and wow, it is amazing. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but I promise you will get your moneys worth. The hostess is very hospitable. Our waitress was super nice and very knowledgeable to the servings and prices and explained what came with what. All dishes ordered were to perfection and super delicious that I would come back again. Our portions were so good that I couldn't finish my plate, nor did my sister couldn't finish her soup de marisco. They give you a consume at the beginning with chips and salsa, so that was a treat. I was very happy here, guys, give it a try, you won't regret it. Had the cilantro pasta with shrimp, large seafood soup, and a fish Po'Boy. Wow. Not bad abt $75.00 total. You know seafood is expensive anywhere but was worth the serving and taste. Thank you La Jaiba.

Simply the best all-around fish and seafood I've experienced in the Rio Grande Valley. They make great ceviche and their "crab bombs" appetizers are "the bomb." The fish with "no name" sauce is delicious and the Classic Tacos have spoiled me for any other fish place. I have never been disappointed there.

Great food, great service... Seafood quality is wonderful. Pricing is 4 lunch specials with lemonade and no appetizer or desserts = $77 plus tip. If only they could make Boston/Chicago style cocktail sauce for shrimp. Horse radish, ketchup, and Worcester sauce... consistency and portions are critical. We will go again, maybe bring my own cocktail sauce. P.S. Bring your own catch, they will clean and prep it for you.
