My husband and I visited on a weekday evening in January 2015. Excellent dinners (flounder for him, sea bass for me) with vegetables and rice. Each dinner cost $10 US. Owner was very helpful, giving us advice for how to navigate town and see sights. Would visit again very willingly.

The place is on a side street and we stumbled onto it while biking around old port. Clean and good service with good food selection. You will not be disappointed- cash only!

Ate there last year and won't go back for awhile. The food was fine, nothing great. But, the service left a lot lacking. They seemed overwhelmed by business...yes it was full, but if you can't handle that many tables, take some out. Simple. Might try it again down the road, but there's plenty of other places to try first.

This little restaurant offers about seating for 20 inside and 12 outside on the little deck. When we were in the Malecon (downtown)last week we stopped to have a quiet peaceful dinner and left vowing to make this restaurant a must on seafood in Puerto Penasco. We had the Manager's Special which consisted of too many types of shrimp and... More

Ask for the 3-4 course special. It is never on the menu, but is a great price and allows you to sample a ton of different seafood dishes. Beverage choices are limited and so is seating, but this little restaurant is a best kept secret in the area.

The food is really good. A friend who needs gluten free likes eating here because she doesn't have problems with their cooking and serving methods. This is a very small restaurant with seating inside for maybe 18-22 and outside seating for another 12. Rest rooms are not big enough to change your mind in but they work in a pinch.... More

During a great lunch at the Blue Marlin, the owner suggested we try the house special dinner for two. The next night we came back. The four course dinner was definitely the best we have had in Rocky Point. For that matter, one of the best anywhere. Superior preparation, spectacular service, excellent price. Try one of their fresh squeezed Key... More

Had dinner on the patio a couple of weeks ago. The four of us decided on the "dinner for two" special. Yes it is $29.95 for a couple, but add on the 16% meal tax for average food. I would rather eat at Chef Mickey's where the tax is already added in and I can have a 5 star meal... More

We ate here one of the four nights we were in Rocky Point, and found it to be very tasty. I had sea bass for the first time ever and to my surprise, really enjoyed it! There was only one waiter, but on such a lovely evening, the patio was full with no one inside! The restaurant is quite small,... More
