“GREAT casual lobster, in a different way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Puerto Nuevo lobster is a must! While the flavor is different from Atlantic lobster, the pairing with beans, rice and freshly made flour tortillas make a unique combination that is perfect for a warm summer day paired with a cold beer. A must!!!

“The Best Lobster!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

It has been a few years now but they have the tastiest lobster I have ever had! Absolutely juicy, tender and full of flavor! That along with all their homemade sides you have a perfect meal!

Just be prepared for a long line to get in. Cash only!

“Great lobster tacos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

The lobster tacos are great, well served (whole lobster), beans & rice, salsas and good traditional music. The seafood creamsoup is ok, and dessert is a must!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is the best place I've eaten seafood at! First off, the rice and beans were good and traditional. The tortillas, though, were FANTASTIC. Bigger than your face and has an undescribable taste and texture. The lobster, is the best I've had! Accompany it with that butter thing they have and guacamole! YUM. I also tried the breaded shrimp. It was fantastic as well. This is the best place in Puerto Nuevo, even Baja California, to eat there. We traveled 2 hours from Anaheim just to eat here; it was most defiantly worth it!

“Best lobster in Puerto Nuevo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

As sketchy as Mexico is lately, if you're in the area the place is worth a try.
Big portions of lobster, with delicious tortillas.
Reasonably priced food & beer.
Overall one of the better lobster restaurants I've been to in Mexico.
The restaurant itself is not the nicest or cleanest but ok for Mexico.
