At the Lighthouse, everything comes together in a very nice setting with the most spectacular view in all of Puerto Penasco. Perched on top of the cliffs looking west over the Malecon and the harbor, the vista is enthralling, day or night. The menu is excellent, with a good selection of seafood, traditional Mexican and American favorites. All are well... More

We learned that this is the place to be to watch the sunset over the ocean, and see whales in season. The view was spectacular and the food, wait staff, and drinks were superb

Almost impossible to find the road to get here,even though you can see the restaurant from town on top of whale hill. It is now called the fish restaurant. It is fine dining for Rocky Point with great atmosphere, cloth tablecloths, upscale waiters and place settings. Lovely views of the port and sea, great for sunset. Prices are more like... More

This was a good restaurant but closed I t is now called Fish. Best view of the city. It is located on light house hill, Really good seafood and has a bar upstairs with karaoke or singing with the band. Beautiful place to see a sunset!

Love this location, fantastic guacamole, very good margaritas just ask for the Grand Marnier floater. The views towards sandy beach is wonderful, sunsets are spectacular! Mariachi band is awesome, they look like the cast from a Quentin Tarantino gangster movie but are super nice.

We enjoyed a couple of drinks and appetizers for happy hour. Can't speak to the food over all yet, but the oysters were very fresh and the smoked salmon was great! They make a decent margarita too. The service was better than other local establishments and the view was incredible! We will definitely go back to try their dinner options.... More

It is billed as a very good place for seafood (and all the "C-Food" signs). The food was good, albeit not great. The service was good, but also not great. The atmosphere was quite good, it overlooked the old port area. The prices were similar to comparable restaurants in the USA. They had almost nothing Mexican on the menu and... More

Thought we'd try this restaurant, since it has such an awesome view of the bay and city. Surely the food would be good, we thought. ....WE THOUGHT WRONG! By FAR the most bland tasting Mexican food I've ever had in my life. Everyone in our group was thoroughly disappointed with their meals. NO flavor and not spicey hot in the... More

This place is high on a hill and can be difficult to ascend on a dark or stormy night. The food is good and the atmosphere is also. The wait staff is friendly and service is better than average.
