Had fish Veracruz, enough to split with husband. Ask for tortillas, they are the best! Includes chips and salsa. Very attentive staff and the view is a must. Watched the sunset while we enjoyed our dinner.

The food, atmosphere, and views at this restaurant is second to none! The only downside is that the service is a little slow and there is almost always a wait.

The view is spectacular. Especially nice on the outside patio. Great if the weather is nice, but often windy and cold if you are there in the winter. The food and service are average at best. Worth a stop for a sunset view.

You can't beat the view here. The prices are reasonable and the food is acceptable. The coconut shrimp were excellent. The pina coladas pretty good. The real reason to come is is because of the view.

We only stopped for drinks and the view! Difficult to find but well worth time driving in circles! Very hospitable staff and good, ample, and safe parking.

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
