This restaurant had been on our list for quite sometime so we finally decided to try it out. The view is spectacular!! You can see most of Penasco from this restaurant.. its amazing. So we finally sat down and decided to order and noticed the food was a bit pricey, well that's what you have to pay for the view... More

Eight of us stopped in for dinner and were seated immediately. The problem was it was pretty windy and cold outside, so we moved indoors. That's when it seemed like they forgot we were even there. It took at least ten minutes to get someone to take our drink orders and another ten minutes to get a menu. In fact... More

Nice menu with wide selection to choose from. The food is always fresh and the portions are quite large. The coconut shrimp are wonderful! They seem to be running a 50% off entree coupon in honor of their 2nd (I think) anniversary .... the coupon has been available for a few years! You can usually find it in the Rocky... More

One of our favorite places to dine in Rocky Point. Aside from the view, which is spectacular overlooking the Malecon, the food is excellent. The wait staff is usually very attentive and accommodating. The food is excellent and if you dine prior to 4 pm there is a 50% menu that includes various shrimp, Mexican and seafood dishes. Our first... More

We go to this restaurant each year we visit Rocky Point and love it! The food this year was the best we have had! Coconut shrimp, bbq shrimp and chicken fajitas. The tortilla soup was, surprisingly, the star of the night!

Fantastic view of the sunset! Service was extremely slow (about an hour's wait for food and drinks to arrive) and the food was very poor. My wife had fish tacos. Tortillas tasted store bought. Fish was dry and overcooked. I had the chili relleno with carne asada and it was below average. Refried beans, rice, and tortilla chips were bland.... More

This restaurant had a beautiful view of the ocean. The food was good also. They had Mariachi musicians for entertaining.

On top of the light house hill the sunset view is spectacular! I have eaten there 3 times over the last 7 years and got sick all 3 times!! Have a margarita or an Indio and watch the sunset only!

Let me start by confirming the other reviews that the views here are arguably the best in Rocky Point. The restaurant overlooks Old Port all the way to Cholla Bay. We can for brunch, so I can only imagine what sunset must be here. Food was good, but pretty much in line with anything you could get in town. Big... More
