Great place to watch the sunset

While watching the sunset we ordered fish tacos and they were fantastic, big portions as we took the leftovers back to the room and they were even better the next day, the tortillas did not get soggy at all and the cole slaw stayed crunchy.

I wasn't quite sure what to think of this place when we arrived as we were the only people there (it was the off season) We ordered the calamari and it knocked my socks off. I couldn't believe calamari could be this fresh and delicious. Grilled rather than fried. Totally fantastic. We also had the coconut shrimp which was delicious.

A wonderful wharf like restaurant serving excellent grouper and fries. Guacamole is also excellent. Prices are reasonable. A delightful meal along with a glass of wine, surrounded by water and fishing boats. Staff are excellent. Location is great as is steps away from the Utramar Ferry.

This was my third time at Bally Hoo and every meal I have enjoyed thus far. My favorite is their garlic shrimp which is fantastic. My friends and I rave about it. The coconut shrimp is tasty, as is the fish and chips (this was coming from the Brit). A must try is the Bally Hoo Margarita (it's a mint... More

We stopped in for a drink and a snack. Both had a huge margarita which was pretty good along with pico and some crazy spicy salsa along with gringo sauce. We also tried the ceviche sauce. Our server Jacob was a great guy. It was a nice spot to enjoy our first evening and see the sunset.

This was a great place for breakfast. The service and food were both great! We lived the location and being able to watch the fishing boats load up and head out for the day. Great view, food, and service! Very reasonably priced too.

We tried this restaurant at the beach. The waiter was very nice and attentive. Good location. The place seemed relatively clean, nice ambiance. We ordered grilled octopus and fish tacos. Everywhere I go, if I can, I have octopus. I can honestly say this was the worst octopus I have had. Chewy, rubbery, and tasteless. We were very disappointed. The... More

This is a great little restaurant. The spot is perfect. The view is amazing and the food is good too. Very good fish and seafood. After dinner its very easy to walk downtown to check out the nightlife.

Great place to grab some fish tacos and cold beer. Behind a gas station so not easy to find. Great view looking out at the boats.

This semi hidden restaurant is located in the marina behind the PeMex gas station. It's an open air restaruant that is known for great food and cold drink. Try the fish or shrimp tacos for a wonderful meal. They are baja style.
