“Consistently good. Tasty chocolate clams!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

This restaurant is a family favorite. We have eaten here over 20 times in the last 5 years and have never had a bad meal. The chocolate clams with the garlic preparation are delicious and very generous with more than one clam included in each shell. The other food is simple and of high quality. It isn't a very sunny location, so if you're prone to being cold, bring a jacket. The guacamole, margaritas and seafood should all be tried. Cheesy decor with a cute boat-bar and license plates from around the US. It is obvious this place has fans!

“Loved the bike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

At the Giggling Dolphin you can mix your own margarita by riding on a stationary bike... so much fun, laughter and a great experience.

“Giggling Dolphin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is the place we always visit when we pass through Loreto. The tacos are great and the owner welcoming. They have a margarita bicycle and cold Pacificos.
