Love this location, fantastic guacamole, very good margaritas just ask for the Grand Marnier floater. The views towards sandy beach is wonderful, sunsets are spectacular! Mariachi band is awesome, they look like the cast from a Quentin Tarantino gangster movie but are super nice.

We enjoyed a couple of drinks and appetizers for happy hour. Can't speak to the food over all yet, but the oysters were very fresh and the smoked salmon was great! They make a decent margarita too. The service was better than other local establishments and the view was incredible! We will definitely go back to try their dinner options.... More

It is billed as a very good place for seafood (and all the "C-Food" signs). The food was good, albeit not great. The service was good, but also not great. The atmosphere was quite good, it overlooked the old port area. The prices were similar to comparable restaurants in the USA. They had almost nothing Mexican on the menu and... More

Thought we'd try this restaurant, since it has such an awesome view of the bay and city. Surely the food would be good, we thought. ....WE THOUGHT WRONG! By FAR the most bland tasting Mexican food I've ever had in my life. Everyone in our group was thoroughly disappointed with their meals. NO flavor and not spicey hot in the... More

This place is high on a hill and can be difficult to ascend on a dark or stormy night. The food is good and the atmosphere is also. The wait staff is friendly and service is better than average.

This Restaurant has been sold to the owners of Pan e Vino who have done an extensive remodel and re-opened it with a new name... "Fish". You may want to combine the reviews or remove the Lighthouse altogether since it has been closed for several months.

The driveway getting there is something else but you will be glad you went. Excellent, seafood, excellent Pilot Grigio, excellent Malbec & excellent service. They appreciate your being there from the moment you enter the parking lot until you leave. Server was knowledgeable about both the food and wine and attentive without being intrusive. Sit outside and enjoy the beautiful... More

We treated ourselves to the balcony at the Lighthouse/El Capitan. Margaritas are so good when looking over Sea of Cortez toward Baja and watching the sunset. Served quickly and graciously. Terrific for the view!

Near the Malecon, we took a short hike up the hill to the lighthouse. The view was great and mostly serene. A couple of restaurants open there, but we went just to enjoy the afternoon breeze and view.
