“Upscale Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

My husband lives in Puerto Penasco and I'm from Phoenix. We dine out all the time. My first dining experience with Chef Mickey was at Las Palmas Resort. He has since moved to a bigger location in town. The cuisine at this restuarant is nothing like any other place in Penasco. The sauces are amazing especially on the pastas. Dishes that Ive really enjoyed and highly recommend are Stuffed mushrooms, Toasted cheese bread, Filet gorgonzala, Chicken & shrimp alfredo, Shrimp diablo pasta. If you like wine this the place to sip wine with your meal. The Chef is an Iron Chef winner so you will not be disappointed! Ask the server to speak with Chef Mickey some time before you leave. He has a wonderful warm personality.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Having read about the Iron Chef winner, we stopped by and were blown away by the restaurant. Where to start? Staff - first class. Attentive, nice, helpful not pushy. Appetizer (shrimp sampler)- amazing! Dinner - I had macademia crusted flounder and it was beyond perfect; husband had stuffed flounder and yummy too! It is clearly the most fabulous restaurant in town - a hidden gem - and Chef Mickey checked in after dinner to make sure we were pleased. Oh yeah! Definite must do!

“Top Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

My family has been coming to Puerto Penasco for 21 years! Back then we had very few choices and we were afraid to eat out! Three years ago we met Chef Mickey and WOW what a CHEF! Chef Mickey's Place is, hands down, the best restaurant in town. There are so many choices on the menu. Everything is delicious and Mickey is very conscious of anyone with special needs like my vegetarian daughter and my gluten free amigos. The prices are great, the food unsurpassed and the Chef is very personable. Chef Mickey has catered several events for my family and our guests were treated to the best cuisine they'd ever had! The cooking classes are great fun too! Don't miss this little place in paradise. It's a treat for your palate!

“"Puerto Penasco's Iron Chef!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Much to our absolute delight---residents and close friends of ours in Penasco took us to their
favourite restaurant---not realizing at the time that Chef Mickey was a two time Iron Chef
recipient. Ambience was quaint, atmospheric, and costillion.
Very friendly and attentive service. We loved the simplicity, yet full bodied gourmet presentation
to the menu. Sopa was chicken with local vegetables, a braised ceasar salad with blackened
chicken, macadamian nut encrusted local flounder, a chicken specialty with a sauce from
paradise, and a rib eye prepared perfectly. Desserts----the home made chocolate cake and
a mango flan. Big and robust flavors throughout----- All presented with a professional flair.
And YES!--Chef Mickey was on table-side monitoring our enjoyment.
Miss Chef Mickey and staff, and you missed the best Penasco cuisine!

“Penasco's Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Chef Mickey takes charge of everything that comes from the kitchen and the presentation is as appetizing as the food he prepares. From steaks to seafood to the wine selection and appetizers, Chef Mickey wins our vote for best in Penasco(Rocky Point). Chef Mickey visits your table after the entree is served and his staff pays close attention to you all throughout this wonderful dining experience.
