Our arrival to La Picazon was via a boat after a morning of ocean sightseeing and short swim. Our captain pulled up close to shore and Alejandro signaled our boat to indicate they were open. We waded up and Alejandro was so gracious he learned...More

You are better off getting there by boat, but worth the trip. The food is great and you can't beat the atmosphere.

Driving here you'll feel like you're being bounced around and you'll wonder if you'll ever actually get there. Then you arrive and you're cast under Alejandro's magic spell. The setting is beautiful, romantic, peaceful, and very friendly. The margarita was terrific along with the tortilla...More

La Picazon is a restaurant by the sea, with an amazing view - reached only by driving a few miles down a dirt road outside of Loreto, or by boat. It is the perfect place for a leisurely lunch, or sunset dinner. The owner greets...More

As many have mentioned, this is an off-the-grid restaurant on a dirt road north of Loreto that should probably be attempted with someone who has been there. It's a ways up the dirt road. Very relaxing once there, though. And, as someone else mentioned, the...More

The restaurant does not accept credit cards. We were there 4 days ago and I asked the owner who said no, because they are off the grid. They accept cash only...pesos or U.S. Dollars.

Wondering about the cost of taking a boat for a long lunch and maybe an hour or two on the beach snorkelling afterwords?

Response from toni0748 | Reviewed this property |
Around $100. We did not take the boat to the restaurant, rented a car. But the boat is at your disposal for the time you rent it. They often go from the little island reserve to the restaurant.
