Went with friends for dinner. Since we went kind of late, none of us had big meals. I had ceviche which was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Between the 4 of us we had 2 beers and 2 margaritas. Bill was about $100 with tip! Thought was a little high. Had a great view of sandy beach. Looks like... More

Amazing view, the food was very good. We will come again. Our family loved it. The shrimp tacos were yummy. It's the yellow building on top of the rock. You can see it from the malecon

My wife had coconut shrimp which were very good, although the coconut could have been a little crisper. The portions were very good. The entrees all came with soup or... More

The cocunut shrimp tacos were way too sweet. I got fish with mushroom sauce. The sauce was cold. My Dad wanted fried fish they didn't have any. Prices start from $17.00+ (You pretty much are paying for the view).

We had our last dinner in town here. Had tried coconut shrimp at a few other places and this was the best. The Tampiquena was very tender with refried beans and rice. We would visit again. Best view in town.

Our party of 12 had a marvelous dinner and experience during a visit to Puerto Penasco/Rocky Point. It was a little difficult to get to as a new road was being paved at the time. Probably done by now (February 8th, 2017). Food and beverages were very good. Menu selections are very good with a wide variety of shrimp and... More

Aside from the view, which is spectacular overlooking the Malecon and the Sea of Cortez, the food is excellent. The margarita will knock you off your feet. The wait staff was attentive and accommodating. If you dine before 4 pm there is a 50% menu that includes various shrimp, fish, & Mexican dishes.
