We were staying in the hotel that host the Baleen Restaurant so booked a meal. Setting is just stunning, simply to die for. We had amazing food, cocktails, wine and service, all topp d with being able to watch the sun set over the Mexican gulf coast. It doesn't get too much better than that. Just a word of warning,...

If you are looking for great food and a beautiful view then this is one of your stops. I have not had a bad meal here and breakfast is great as well. They have indoor and outdoor with the ocean steps away.

Food here is very good but expensive. View of the beach and sunset are excellent. They also have a fire pit which makes for a different after diner experience. Drinks are also not cheap.

I would like to commend the Baleen staff especially Dwayne whom we had as server Friday the 15th of July. He was very personable and knowledgeable of the menu. He made us feel very welcome and special. You have a great employee with Dwayne. The rest of the staff was superb as well. We will definitely be returning.
