So worth the boat ride!

We stopped here after spending the day snorkeling. Not only did they offer great food and drinks, the owner showed us the outdoor shower (only a hose on a tall post, but it did the trick!). The food was terrific! I had the BBQ shrimp which was served in a half of pineapple and it was so good! We... read more

There is a general axiom about restaurants, "the better the view, the worse the food." This could not be further from the truth for La Picazon. This is without a doubt one of the best places to visit between Ensenada and Cabo. Despite many of the reviews commenting about the "drive through the desert" it is only 8 km (5... More

A wonderful place with amazing food and drink, spectacular view, nice ocean breeze, fantastic host and hostess. Make it a stop by driving or by boat. You will not be disappointed. We will be back! Thank you, Alexandro.

We stopped here for lunch after cruising around Coronado Island and had a most scrumptious meal! The margaritas were just as fantastic and the ambiance incredible.

We had such a great late lunch. Definately worth a stop if your in the area. Our boat dropped us off after we spent morning over at Coranado Island.

I went with a couple friends who had been there before. If I was on my own, I probably would have turned back. You leave town, heading north, on Calle Davis. This turns into a dirt road, that is covered with rocks, and has many side roads off it (they all end up at the same place, you just go... More

A must visit! Totally worth the 9 km drive for lunch. Has a great view of Coronado Island and offers some of the best seafood on the Baja. The Chocolate clams are a just fabulous. The Margs are large and strong and the service great!

Keep going... "I think we might be lost" No, let's just keep going... "Seriously babe, we are lost-- this cants be right" Let's just see. We have 4-wheel-drive and extra gas. Nothing ventured... "THERE IT IS!" See, I told you we'd find it. About 25-min north of Loreto on a dusty road through the desert, veering inland until you think... More

Getting to La Picazon is an adventure, but once there the views, the people and the food were just amazing... worth the adventure

This waterside resturant is not so easy to find but any of the locals in Loreto will give guidance to this charming spot 6 kilometers north of town right on the waters edge with a wonderful view and excellent food. This is a not to be missed experience.
