Let's face it, we can get great tacos or Italian food in many places in Arizona, but fresh seafood which "slept in the ocean last night", well that is at Blue Marlin in Puerto Penasco. We love the Garlic Flounder, Shrimp Tacos and Shrimp Quesadillas. Also try the "Neptune Platter" with tons of seafood for 2. With a view of... More

Tried this place based solely on reviews , otherwise I would have passed. Small place nothing special view but unique Mexican style seafood. Had Halibit rolled in crab and shrimp and shrimp tostada. Nothing like I've tasted before in mexico which is a good thing since alot of mariscos are pretty similar along the coast.

It's supposed that you will find fresh fish and shrimps everywhere in Puerto Peñasco. My experience here was different, the sole cooked in shellfish sauce was average and made with frozen fish. The rest of the order was good.

The owner and wait staff greet their customers with, "Welcome home!" Nice touch, and a good start to dinner. We ate an off-menu seafood dinner for two: Shrimp bisque, fried oysters and shrimp tacos for appetizers, and then two sea bass dishes and three shrimp for the main course. Accompanied by a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, and it was the... More

Over the last few years we have eaten at the Blue Marlin, each time we visited Rocky point. This time, May 2015, was no exception. Food is at a consistent, high level. Prices are reasonable. Fish and shrimp specials are excellent. It is a 1/2 block OFF the main street. You will have to look for it or ask. You... More

On our 2nd day in Puerto Penasco I was craving fish tacos so we decided to try the Blue Marlin. It's a small place with a small porch but quite charming. They greet you with "Welcome Home" upon arrival. They served the chips with a hot peanut sauce and a cilantro cream sauce, a nice departure from the usual salsa.... More

The seafood feast for two was extraordinary. Way too much food to finish, a fabulous to go box for leftovers.

Exploring Old Port and as others have, thanks to Trip Advisor, we decided to have a late lunch at the Blue Marlin. Our time began with owner Homero Ortega greeting us with a huge smile, and "Welcome Home !" Seated on the outdoor patio, Jose, our Server, brought chips and salsas, took our drink orders and presented us with menus.... More
