The views are beautiful. The food quickly draws your attention to the table. Top notch recipes and presentation. We loved the chocolate clams, the appetizers as well as the mains. Worth the effort!

Excellent seafood and an unparalleled atmosphere, right on the beach with stunning views of the Sea of Cortes. About 6 miles from Loreto on a dirt road but worth it. Make sure to try the clams and also the special Picazon sauce (great on shrimp). And, of course, the famous margaritas.

Enjoyed our lunch very much
Seafood bake, shrimp quesadilla, and salad with avocado and grilled garlic shrimp
Great flan for dessert. Garlic remoulade with chips and assorted sauces to start were also fun. Service and view made it a perfect afternoon. Didn’t want to leave
Margaritas were over the top excellent

It's a 20-minute drive down a gravel/dirt/sand road (or a 21-minute bike ride!) to arrive at La Picazon right on the beach on the Sea of Cortez, so you really have to want to go there. But, if you do, you'll be rewarded with friendly, upscale service and some of the best seafood dishes in Loreto (actually, it's 6 miles outside of town).

My husband ordered the shrimp wrap and it was pretty amazing, really luscious. I had the catch of the day, Parrot Fish a la Picazon, a buttery broth of white wine with thinly sauteed onion.

We were barely able to finish the meal, but our server insisted that if we didn't try her flan, we would always regret it. So, we ordered a serving to go. My husband is a flan aficionado and we both agreed, best Flan EVER!

The restaurant is directly on the beach with killer views of Isla del Carmen and her little sister, Isla Coronado. The backdrop of the Las Gigantas mountain range is pretty spectacular as well.

Plan to take your time and soak up the view.

NOTE: small dogs are welcome in the restaurant; larger dogs are not

On our way back from Coronado Island, our boat driver dropped us off on the beach in front of the restaurant and let us have lunch at La Picazon.
The location is absolutely beautiful.
The host was very kind.
The seafood was great! However, there are not many options if you do not like seafood.
