The atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable, with great service from the staff. I was able to quickly find a seat and order my favorite mariscos dishes. The tortilla soup in particular was amazing - it had a perfect balance of flavor, with plenty of fresh ingredients.

The ceviche was also finely done, with large pieces of fish cooked perfectly. I also had their signature dish, pulpo al ajillo. It had the perfect blend of flavors that went down like a warm blanket on a cold night.

Their po'boys are pretty impressive, and the quality of the seafood is outstanding. The shrimp po'boy was particularly amazing - nicely battered and fried shrimp with lettuce, tomatoes, tartar sauce, and remoulade dressing. The sandwiches were huge and tasted great.

The sides that they offer are just as good as the sandwiches; their fries are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside and the coleslaw was crunchy, flavorful and had a not-so-subtle hint of pepper.

Their mariscos are some of the best in Texas! The camarones al mojo de ajo (garlic shrimp) were succulent with a robust garlic flavor that really stands out. Not to mention the calamari frito - it was crazy crunchy on the outside with even more flavor inside! They definitely know how to fry up seafood done right!

Overall Turf N' Surf Po Boy offers some of the best mariscos in Austin! The prices seem fair for what you get, especially considering how generous their portions sizes are. Highly recommend this place if you're ever looking for an amazing seafood experience!

I highly recommend their tostadas de ceviche - finely minced fish blended with fresh onions, tomatoes, cilantro and lemon juice served in a crunchy taco shell. The camarones al mojo de ajo are also exquisite – succulent shrimp cooked in garlic butter that melts in your mouth.

The ceviche mixto is another popular favorite – a flavorful dish of mixed seafood marinated in lime juice topped with flavorful chili peppers.

The best part about La Catedral del Marisco #3 is their reasonable prices - you can get an excellent meal for just a few dollars! I'd say this place has the best mariscos in town - definitely worth checking out!

The facility is modern and inviting, and the staff friendly, educated and very welcoming. The menu selection is expansive, with both classic mariscos dishes, such as ceviche and tacos de camaron, to more exotic dishes like pulpo al carbon. Each dish is cooked to perfection, each bite bursting with flavor!

I especially enjoyed their tamales de jaiba – a unique combination of crabmeat wrapped in a warm tamale – and their ceviche apanázado – fresh fish cooked in fresh lime juice. I could go on and on about how delicious all their seafood dishes were!

The service was excellent; our waiter was attentive throughout our meal and happily answered all our questions about the menu items. We also received complimentary dessert at the end of our meal!
