“Great view, service, and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful restaurant with an incredible view. The dolphins were performing - leaping and spinning while we ate. Miguel was the perfect waiter. The calamari and fresh halibut were superb. Wish I were there right now!

“Great place to bring in the new year!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

We spent Christmas and New Years in Puerto Penasco. I looked on Tripadvisor for good places to eat there and came up with Mare Blu. Our group of 9 went there for dinner and enjoyed it so much we made a reservation for New Year's Eve. They had a limited menu for the 31st but when one of our group didn't see the one dish she had loved there on the previous visit they agreed to make it for her! She was delighted! Our waiter was Alfredo and he was very attentive. Our meals were all delicious and presented beautifully.The musicians counted down to midnight and then Alfredo came over and gave us alll hugs. It was a great way to say goodbye to the 2012 and bring in the new year. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and the view of the Sea fo Cortez is beautiful.When we return to the area we will definitely be back to Mare Blu!

“Excellent service and atmosphere along w good good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Many items on the menu to choose from. Our party of 12 were there a week ago on a Tuesday evening. & sadly for the restaurant there was only one other couple there. ERNESTO was a super waiter (didn't realize he maybe the manager.) Some ordered the biuliabase (SPELLING?) And it was exceptional. Nicely presented food. Tasty. Clean. ERNESTO served asparagus for us, nicely done! I had scampi style shrimp Very good! Don't miss this fine place with ocean views. Romantic, if u r not w 12 folks. Fun place for groups. They have outdoor seating too.

“Mare Blu on Sandy Beach in Rocky Point, Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Coldwell Banker By the Sea celebrated our pre-Christmas celebration at the Mare Blu. We all had lobster, as to which Don Julio had 3 types of lobster to select. I had the steamed lobster tail and it was perfect. The others had the other 2 types and they all enjoyed, "Delicious!"

Prior to sunset, we had cocktails outside and took several photos. The weather was perfect and the sunset thru the high clouds brought several different colors to the sky. Just Beautiful.

The service was excellent. The waiters were always checking on for what more we may need.

My overall rating was a 6 star.

You must give Mare Blu on Sandy Beach a try.

“Mare Blu and jazz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Mare Blu is an excellent choice for a good meal and atmosphere. This is a tablecloth and linen style setting, but can dress casual but nice. Prices are reasonable. It is on the water, actually 2 locations, I'm writing about the one near Cholla Bay next to the reef. The menu is varied and focuses on Italian. We've been here many times over the past year or so and each visit was good. We went specifically this trip because Agua de Coco was playing. They are an incredible latin jazz ensemble. You MUST find out where they are playing and make the effort to hear them. Currently they play at Mare Blu on Monday and Thursday.
