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

We had a delightful lunch here while anchored across the bay at Coronado Island. We took our powerboat over and were the first for lunch. 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

The covered outdoor sea side patio offers a unique ambience for the rural Loreto area. Each menu item prepared by IMELDA (the superb chef) is a treat. ALEHANDRO will warmly welcome you to their restaurant. Do not miss this experience.

It will seem as a long drive from Loreto, but you are going to a memorable destination. It is a wonderful part of Baja, across from Coronado Island. The ocean front is a wonderful colection of rocks and old shells. But your purpose is the food and the service, both very good. I had the seafood soup, my wife the... More

While out for a drive one after noon happened to be driving by and decided to stop. Only had margaritas. Stopped for 1 but they were so good we all had to have 2. Will definitely make a point of visiting for a meal on our next Loreto visit.

If you go to Loreto without visiting this restaurant, you will miss THE dining highlight. It is a 7 km drive down a long secluded dirt road but you can also get there by boat if you ask your guide on a boat trip to take you there. The location is remote and gorgeous. Open air dining right on the... More

We were lucky enough to hear from some other tourists about La Picazon. You have to know where you are going to get there, driving about 20 minutes along a dirt road, however when you get there you are greeted by a beautiful view of the ocean and Coronado Island. I had the smoked Marlin Tacone as it had been... More
