Excellent Service, Fantastic Food, Great Price...and a black cat

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor (!) and was not disappointed. It's all true! The staff are friendly, fun, and treat you like a valued friend. The food was outstanding.

We love the friendly staff and the excellent food. The $2.99 Fish Taco special is wonderful. And the Cilantro Sauce to put on them only makes them better. Definitely our favorite spot in Rocky Point.

Cute little restaurant ½ block back from the Malecon. Do not try to use the map from TA as it will take you to the wrong city. I was able to spot the restaurant as someone had written that it is across the street from Thrifty’s ice cream (and it is). I live on the west coast of Canada and... More

We were in Puerto Penasco for a week. We enjoyed dining at the Blue Marlin twice. The shrimp quesadilla was my favorite appetizer and my wife enjoyed the shrimp cocktails. The quality of the food was excellent, the drinks were very good, and the service excellent. The best deal for under $50 for two, including drinks and dessert. A must... More

I love seafood and the Blue Marlin seafood combination special is excellent! Everything is extremely fresh, and perfectly prepared. This dish includes white fish, shrimp, and clams prepared in several different ways each, all absolutely delicious, and cost approx. $30 US for two people, not each! The seafood dishes on the menu range from fish tacos to specialties from all... More

As we walked up, a group ahead of us greeted the owner like an old friend. Clearly this was a favorite spot for them. The restaurant is tiny and they had a reservation for a large group so we had to sit out on the patio. It was getting breezy and I feared we'd be cold by the time we... More

My wife and I wanted two things for dinner, to be in the old port and seafood, so we searched on Tripadvisor and found the #7 rated restaurant, well it should be #1. First off the location is perfect because it's about a 1/2 a block from the water and the very LOUD main strip/street so it's quiet and ROMANTIC.... More

I enjoyed lunch at the Blue Marlin. They were very friendly and my shrimp was excellent. The Owner was there and he was very kind. He would say " Welcome Home" . My husband had the fish tacos and they were good. Food was very reasonably priced

A terrific find. We went with our two young daughters (ages 4 and 1) and had a great experience. Delicious and fresh.
