Listen, when you are in Guerrero Negro, you don't have many choices. In fact, my wife and I both thought that if somebody showed up there and decided to make a truly comfortable hotel and run a decent restaurant, they could make a killing.....but they would have to live in GN, which would be bad. Ok - let's get to the restaurant.

The restaurant looks pretty cool and historic. You can tell that it's been around a while, has neat photos and paintings and memorabilia laying around....gives you that feeling that you are in the right place. The waiter was unfriendly, and at times made us feel like he was intentionally ignoring us. But one in a while he smiled, so we could really read him. We ordered the Guerrero Negro Scallop appetizer, and it was really good. The famous GN raw scallops tossed in lime and onions, covered by slices avocados. My wife and I both ordered the Camarones al Mojo de Ajo (Shrimp in garlic sauce), and they were small shrimp, still in the shell and overcooked - very dry. They came with a side salad, which was acceptable.

The bill was $40 for an appetizer, 2 mains and 3 alcoholic beverages. Not cheap, but not crazy for a decent hotel restaurant. I wish they didn't screw up the shrimp.

Seafood. Some of the best on the entire peninsula. Excellent brewed coffee and service. If you have problems they will help you. They are extremely knowledgeable about who is the best mechanic in town and how to navigate past problems

We liked the food here better than Don Luis and Los Caracoles. The sea food platter for two was very good and the portions were generous.
