Very nice spot to look at the Sea of Cortez while have a good lunch. The service was friendly and fairly fast. Not expensive and good selection of seafood. The beach is a good swimming beach also.

We like El Tecolote beach. When we've traveled there, we've had the place to ourselves both times. We ate in the restaurant both times, once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both times, the food was good but what's hard to beat is the view.
