Go by small boat (lots of opportunities to hire at the pier) or take the drive ( pay attention to the signs on the partially unpaved road.) Don't miss this restaurant!!! The small restaurant is on the water, just in front of the owners' home. They are a charming couple, he a great host, she an amazing chef. The choices... More

My wife and I decided to try La Picazon for the first time this October while we were in Loreto BCS. I have to say that the drive out to the restaurant was a bit questionable but you just have to keep going because its certainly worth it. The view of the Sea of Cortez, the service and the food...

Our panga driver to Isla Coronado recommended we try this place and we were not disappointed. The drive is a bit challenging but worthwhile. When we arrived to La picazón we were greeted by a nice man and his wife. Piña Coladas were delicious and strong. The almejas gratinadas were my favorite. We also enjoyed a fish prepared garlic style.... More

We drove out a hot dusty road to this oasis. We were greeted by two sweet wieners dogs and cervezas and margaritas 1 And excellent seafood. The coconut shrimp is the best. And we had freshly caught fish with garlic & butter. You can swim and snorkel on the beach. Very gracious owner.

Amazing food and the view from the beach is awesome, going back in two weeks and I cant wait! Go past the Mailcon and follow the signs .You can also take a boat from the Marina. I promise you will fall in love with this place, just as I did.

This place is a MUST GO while in Loreto. The best way to get here is by boat, the captain will sit just offshore and wait for you. Catch a sunset on the way back and enjoy a five star meal cooked by Alejandro and his wife. The best way to enjoy is to just let Alejandro bring you whatever... More

Within 30 minutes,the restaurant was full, mostly with vacationers who were brought in via pangas. The owner, Alejandra, was Very cordial and service oriented. One of his sons is another waiter. Everything about this lunch... More

I have known the owners for many years and they are always welcoming and generous. Wonderful food, different and delightful. Food is fresh and Imelda prepares with love and Alexando delivers with style! Well worth the drive through interesting Baja landscape. An even more delightful way to arrive is by boat if you can arrange it. Be sure and check... More
