We saw this place from the Malacon last night and after reading some reviews decided to try it for lunch. It was great. We had shrimp tacos and chilly rellenos. Both ever delicious and the view was fabulous.

We stop here first every time we go to PP, the best margaritas anywhere, great fish tacos, shrimp, and the views are to die for. We have never been disappointed and our time in PP would not be the same if we didn’t stop here!...More

The view from this high up restaurant is spectacular. We started with excellent large margaritas, salsa and chips. Mexican shrimp cocktails and flounder entrees were also tasty and fresh. Can’t wait til our next visit.

The food is absolutely acceptable but you go for the 270 degree views and sunset over the ocean on top of the Rocky Point. A must when in RP.

So had to come here to check out the view. And ask a local how to get here, because the road is newly paved and neither Google or Apple Maps could get me here. You turn onto the street off of Benito Juarez on your...More

They serve fresh local fish. But they have it on the menu. I belive it is frozen. It is more for clams, oisters, shrimp. They are the best.
