Best Drunken Shrimp Ever

Awesome margaritas and the best drunken shrimp. As you walk into the restaurant you get the feeling of a family diner. The decor is not really fancy but the food and drinks make up for it. There's no view but there are TVs.

Puerto Penasco has lost a bit of its charm but certainly not La Curva Restaurant. It's not the easiest place to find, especially at night, but once there you'll be welcomed and well fed. During a recent trip to the Mayan Palace resort (South of Puerto Penasco), we twice went into town to eat at La Curva. They have a... More

We stopped here for breakfast and I was not expecting to like it (yes I was judging the book by its cover). It was a big group of us and they seated us pretty fast. We kept asking for drinks and more refills left and right and they kept up with us but ones the food was out and everyone... More

We have eaten at La Curva several times and found their food to be good, but not outstanding. I almost wish there was a 3 1/2 rating because their consistency makes them a bit above average but they aren't quite a 4 in our scale of rating. For those Americans that are calorie conscious, the food is pretty heavy and... More

Great food, great people, gets a little noisy and crowed after 5pm on a weekend, with strolling Mariachi bands and such, but we adore the place, been going there for decades!

Love this little out of the way dive. Great food and great people here. My 1st 2 visits here I had breakfast. I enjoyed both of these. The next two trips were for lunch and dinner. We ordered the Sampler platter for about 18 American you get a huge tray of food. Beans, Rice, Gauc, Burrito, Enchilada, Tamale, and more... More

Wow! We had the most delicious meal we have ever had in Rocky Point last night. We were at La Curva and just as I was lamenting the lack of a seafood combination platter on the menu, the waiter informed us that it was the special of the day. There were two different fish preparations and six different shrimp dishes.... More

We spend a week every year in Puerto Penasco, and our multiple visits to La Curva are always the highlight of our stay. Great food, warm and prompt service, reasonable prices. As well, I'm pretty picky about the cleanliness of places and La Curva meets my high standards, which is a biggie for me. They all speak good English but... More

The food was as good as the reviews here indicated and better yet, our waiter, Xavier, signed us up for a quad tour that was delightful! There was no pressure, he just quickly shared with us his side venture and let us think about it over lunch one day. Another couple in the restaurant vouched for him and we thought...why... More
