Great setting on beach with good food

We ate here with our two young kids. This is a great restaurant for families because the kids can run around on the beach if they get antsy. That said, the restaurant is "protected" from people selling their items on the beach so it's not open access in that regard. We enjoyed the food and drinks... read more

Excellent shrimp tacos, drinks and service. It's also above the beach so you don't have to deal as much with the folks selling trinkets.

We have dinner and/or lunch as the Blue Shrimp every time we visit and it is quickly becoming our favorite - not quite there yet but almost. Great food, service, and atmosphere! Beach location with all outdoor seating right off of the beach is fantastic. This is our favorite lunch location and it never disappoints!

Everything was perfect. The View the Food and the Staff. Shrimp was to die for and it had some great margaritas.

A bit noisy and pricey, but good food. Try for a beach view. 2 people us$90 with one drink. Should have realized the punta restaurants service upscale hotels so the prices reflect that.

We ate at Blue Shrimp before going on a snorkel trip. The view was gorgeous and the food excellent. I would definitely eat their shrimp tacos again and again.

This was a nice restaurant - definitely one of the more expensive in the area, but great eats and atmosphere. Romantic.

The food is good and the portions generous. The Shrimp Tacos are an appetizer that easily served as a meal. The location is central and on the ocean. Service is good. I did find the prices a bit hefty. If you are on a budget, there are other places in town that are equally as satisfying.

Perfect, right on the ocean, great selection of seafood, and very good service. They serve lunch and dinner. Went for lunch at the end of our vacation, sorry we hadn't stopped by earlier. They actually gave free sample of coconut shrimp (I have never liked them, just loved these!) Beer served in individual ice buckets, way cool. We ordered an... More
