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.

Best sunset dining in Rocky Point. Typical Mexican menu. Always very tasty. Save room for the flan. One place we return to every trip.

Had fish Veracruz, enough to split with husband. Ask for tortillas, they are the best! Includes chips and salsa. Very attentive staff and the view is a must. Watched the sunset while we enjoyed our dinner.

The food, atmosphere, and views at this restaurant is second to none! The only downside is that the service is a little slow and there is almost always a wait.

The view is spectacular. Especially nice on the outside patio. Great if the weather is nice, but often windy and cold if you are there in the winter. The food and service are average at best. Worth a stop for a sunset view.
