Luckily we went to the restaurant's website which stated that they are closed for repairs. We drove out anyway to look and there was nothing going on and it was locked up tight. Better check the website before you venture out!

La Picazon could be in the best location in all of Loreto. Away from the city and on the water its tough to beat the great view and serenity of their location. We only stopped by for an appetizer and a beer, and ended up staying for a few drinks more. Its tough to leave this restaurant. I could only... More

A 20-ish minute drive down a dusty, rocky, sandy unpaved road from the center of Loreto, you will come upon the oasis that is La Picazon.If you are only going for a margarita and the view, that alone is worth the trip. However, we recommend you stay for the food and the delightful company of the owners and their sweet... More

We were greeted by the owner and welcomed like a friend. I was happy to find an outdoor shower around the back. Great for all of us after our day on the water and sunbathing in the white sand. The smoked marlin was a new taste for me. Remember to get there early. Having no electricity, they close at about... More

The trip to La Picazone is worth the adventure. Our friends drove there via a dry river bed, down a canyon with walls embedded with millions of shells. This canyon is a few miles from the shore so it's all the more magnificent. Alejandro and his wife welcomed us to dinner at their home. The appetizers whetted our appetite for... More

Who would travel a few miles on a barley dirt road into the desert to have lunch, I and my friends keep returning to Alejandro and Imelda's home that sits on the edge of the Sea of Cortez facing Coronado Island. You are welcomed by warm hugs, great drinks and when ready lunch of fresh caught fish and veges. But,... More

La Picazon is great!! It is very much worth the drive out for a great meal and beautiful scenery from the open dining area. If you are in Loreto, you have to enjoy a meal and the view at this place. Alejandro and his wife are perfect hosts and you leave there with a couple of new friends. If they... More

We rode some funky mountain bikes to La Picazon and I would say it would be worth crawling to this restauart. Alex and his crew, including the 3 weiner dogs, are delightful and the meal was extraordinary. And the view of Coronado Island is beautiful. It was even worth it after riding the clunky bikes back to Loreto in the... More

A little drive north of town but well worth the effort to get there. Alejandro and his wife put you at ease the moment you arrive and are great hosts. Their margaritas are one of the best in Loreto but you don't want to have too many as they are strong. And the wraps are wonderful. I was out there... More

Wow ! From the moment you arrive you know you are in a special place. You are made to feel welcomed and that you can spend hours here hanging out on th beach or relaxing on the patio with a wonderful margarita. And then there is the food! Divine and something for everyone. Vegetarian no problem, burgers for picky kids(... More
