This is a summer go to. BEST fish tacos, prompt staff, great view, I could come here for hours on a lazy attraction afternoon watching the boats pass by. If it's warm enough and your down to go for a dip, they have paddle board and kayak rentals right below the restaurant.

Mangodilla. That's all I should have to say, but this is also home to one of my favorite hot sauces (bright orange pure habanero). Stop in often enough and you're also likely to find live music, great views of the water, and of course all of the other great food items on the menu.

Try the scones! They are tastiest scones I ever had, especially strawberry and mango, and coffee is always fresh. The food is just great and everyone is so friendly! If you are in the university district, you should definitely stop by!

I don't know if it's because I'm from a state that has outstanding Mexican food (California) but the food was absolutely disappointing on all levels. I ordered al pastor pollo tacos and a puerco burrito. My tacos had flavorless chicken it's as if the marinade was just brushed on right before cooking because it was flavorless and covered with pineapple that tasted as if it came from a can. The burrito was sweet. It had absolutely no flavor and had nothing in it. Truly disappointing. People must line up for something other than food here because the food here is a joke. The only reason it gets two stars is because there's nice outdoor seating.

One of my complaints of Seattle is the lack of good Mexican restaurants (which always makes locals upset). I really do enjoy Agua Verde, wouldn't say it is the best Mexican food I have had, but in the area I would probably say it is the best I have had thus far. Their portions are decently big, haven gotten the burritos the past couple times I have had no complaints at all. I have been wanting to try their mole real bad so that is next on the list. They have nice outdoor seating getting a good view of the water which is always nice on a clear day. It can get a little busy here and there, but they have a decent amount of seating. Would say this is worth a shot if you are in the same boat as me and haven't had Mexican food here that you have really enjoyed.

So disappointing. My first (and last) time as a patron. Three soft taco shells, topped with an abundance of raw cabbage, and 1/4 cup of shredded carnitas. Horrible. No flavor, nothing. The sides of pureed black beans, and rice, did little to help. My 2 cents: Go elsewhere.

Really great restaurant with a fun location. The salsa bar is a cool perk.
