a wonderful place on a side street, near Thrifty ice cream. I had the seafood special.. a variety of fish starting with clams in butter, then shrimp cooked 4 - 5 ways.. grilled, with garlic, fried.. etc. Everything was mouth watering delicious. Eating on the outside patio on a cool evening is just wonderful.

After reading reviews, for one of two nights out without the children we chose the Blue Marlin (Marlin Azul) for a romantic dinner. Thanks to the insider secrets mentioned here, we went for the Special for Two. We couldn't have chosen better. We began with shrimp bisque and a delicious green salad with the famous cilantro cream dressing. Both delicious;... More

Although I go to Puerto Penasco regularly, this was my first visit to Blue Marlin. It certainly won't be my last. One of the best meals I have had. Excellent food quality and preparation. Impeccable service. Great value. Our new favorite. Go! You will not be disappointed.

From the moment we walked in and were warmly greeted by soft jazz music and our smiling waiter telling us, "Welcome home!", we knew we had found a true gem. The owner came in shortly after we were seated to also welcome us and made us feel right at home. The restaurant is very small, with only about 10 tables... More

Food was ok, we order 2 fish tacos (great sauce) and a shrimp cocktail, they treated us good, owner was charming as always, just could not believe they have the special "2 fish tacos x 3 dlls" wich is great, BUT if you are paying with your hard earned pesos you have to pay over 42 pesos for it, when...

I've been to Blue Marlin many times and they never disappoint. The steamed clams, smoked marlin, Mexican style shrimp cocktail and fish taco's are a MUST! Our host (the owner) Omero is always gracious and welcoming -- "this is your home, welcome home!" While Blue Marlin is off of the Malecon and therefore a little harder to find, it is... More

Took off one star only because they take cash only. I had the Mexican shrimp cocktail, garlic grilled flounder and a margarita. All were wonderful. My husband also very much enjoyed his enchilada. Very reasonably priced. Highly recommend this place.

We have been here the past two times and have enjoyed it both times. This time we were able to take advantage of the music from next door at the coffee shop. Can't wait to go back. Oh, and they have an avocado dip that comes with their free chips and it's delicious!
