“Amazing group setting and views that never end”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

I am a tour guide in Mexico. This week I had the opportunity to take a group of 52 retirees to La Casa del Capitan. A group this size really stresses a restaurant. Not this one....the crew was ready for us, the service was super efficient with the cold drink being delivered immediately. The food is really good especially the bacon wrapped shrimp, it was a crowd favorite. We will certainly use the restaurant again! Thanks La Casa del Capitan!

“great view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We try to visit this spot every time we visit Puerto Penasco, for cocktails with an amazing view.
This last visit one of our group invited the Mariachis to sing. When we gave them our tip, the lead guitarist, looked at the tip, and it was generous, and then demanded that each of us owed the same amount. This has never been my understanding of the mariachi/gratuity arrangement and it spoiled what had been an enjoyable visit . That is why I gave it one star. Perhaps Eva, our waitress should clue those guys in. We will visit again but enjoy the mariachi music from a distance.

“Great view, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Located at the top of the hill above the marina and malecón adjacent to The Lighthouse. Has indoor bar and restaurant seating as well as outdoor seating with a 270 degree view. We and beverages at the bar one evening and went back the next day for lunch outside. Service was great and prices were reasonable. The food prep was a bit odd in our opinion, the verde sauce on my chicken enchiladas was a pale green and seemed to have pureed avocado in it; the carné on the Super Nachos tasted of BBQ sauce, but both were good. My wife and her sister raved over the shrimp tacos. The margaritas were tasty and the cerveza ice cold. Recommended!

“Romantic place to enjoy the sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Clean and friendly staff, you have the choice inside or outside with one of the most beautiful view at the Malecon area. I love the piña colada!

“Good Food and the Best View in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Great place to look over the city and the bay. Very good food and service. A little tricky to find the road to the top of the hill, but worth it once you're there!
