We have been here the past two times and have enjoyed it both times. This time we were able to take advantage of the music from next door at the coffee shop. Can't wait to go back. Oh, and they have an avocado dip that comes with their free chips and it's delicious!

Loved the grilled shrimp tacos, guacamole, margaritas and salsa. Fresh! Beautiful presentation! Gracious service and hospitality. Will definitely visit again and again

As homeowners and frequent diners in Rocky Point (aka Puerto Penasco), we've experienced a lot of local food. Had wanted to stop by the quaint looking Blue Marlin for a long time; wish we'd made it sooner!
We had a lovely lunch ($3; yep, that's $3) of the fish taco special (two yummy tacos served with fresh slaw/salsa, marinated red onions, and a marvelous but light cilantro/lime dressing. The combo was terrific on the fresh & lightly breaded fish. Also enjoyed a heaping bowl of steamed fresh baby clams ($8). This is the first place I've seen drawn butter I've seen yet in town.
Best thing aside from great food is the lovely owner (so sorry I forgot his name already). We were warmly greeted with a big "Welcome!", followed by a thorough explanation of the menu. We absolutely felt appreciated here. Ask about the sample plate for two if you are up for a big feed at dinner.
Located downtown on Calle Zaragoza, it's sunny patio (interior dining available also) just up from the water, and with a cold beer in hand made for a very relaxing afternoon. You will not be disappointed here! I can't wait to share this treasure with more of our Rocky Point friends.

Enjoyed the Smoked Marlin Tacos! They are not always available so you need to ask if they are available if this is what you are after. It was a great flavor and a nice change from shrimp or fish. You will be glad you tried them (if they are available). My wife tried the flounder and she said it was okay (she did not agree with cheese sauce). I recommend this place for the Smoked Marlin Tacos! A short walk up from the main drag in El Malecon. I will definitely visit again when I return to Rocky Point. Service is great.

Try to go our first night each time we go down. Always eat outside, altho indoor seating is lovely
Great service, outstanding food and very good value for your $$
Planning on going again in Oct.
If they offer the sampler for two ORDER IT! We couldn't eat it all, and everything was fantastic. Also the garlic flounder is awesome. Never had a mediocre dish!
