Mariscos Altimar in Albuquerque, NM

Like stepping into a Mexican port or fishing village joint!

Spicy salsa, both red and green and freshly made.  Paco was our server and was very knowledgeable.  Grilled Sea Bass was prepared authentically (scaled and scarred with vertical slices on each side and rubbed with spices then fried in wok or pan), and served topped with sautéed onions, tomatoes, peppers and garlic.  Fish was very fresh to the taste despite being served in New Mexico, with no ocean border.

Tacos Asada was chopped marinated steak, and pretty tasty.  But really all the seafood seem to be the featured attraction and we were pleasantly surprised by it’s authenticity and value.  The drinks were strong and overall it was a great stop, right off Interstate 40.

Visually, the Decor was straight from Mexican sea village with some classy touches amid the clutter: There were Multi colored glass flowered chandelier fixtures accenting a highly decorative and festive dining room!
