Puerto Nuevo II is an awesome place to visit when you're looking to feast on lobster. Been coming here for over twenty years. This restaurant also has other offerings for those not looking to have lobster feast. Their house lobster bisque is delish.

In front of the ocean. They do it right. You can expect to see the waves break and enjoy lobster with beans. Nothing better!

Puerto Nuevo lobster is a must! While the flavor is different from Atlantic lobster, the pairing with beans, rice and freshly made flour tortillas make a unique combination that is perfect for a warm summer day paired with a cold beer. A must!!!

The lobster tacos are great, well served (whole lobster), beans & rice, salsas and good traditional music. The seafood creamsoup is ok, and dessert is a must!

This is the best place I've eaten seafood at! First off, the rice and beans were good and traditional. The tortillas, though, were FANTASTIC. Bigger than your face and has an undescribable taste and texture. The lobster, is the best I've had! Accompany it with that butter thing they have and guacamole! YUM. I also tried the breaded shrimp. It... More

As sketchy as Mexico is lately, if you're in the area the place is worth a try. Big portions of lobster, with delicious tortillas. Reasonably priced food & beer. Overall one of the better lobster restaurants I've been to in Mexico. The restaurant itself is not the nicest or cleanest but ok for Mexico.

Food was O.K. but, for me, a little overpriced which is common in a tourist-oriented area catering to Americans.
