Ate on the 2nd floor one day, the 3rd the next. Wonderful fish tacos, great drinks, gave us free tequila shots and a card for 2 for 1 drinks the 2nd day. Very attentive staff. Great prices.

Ok fish tacos, the fish was steamed and kinda boring. The octopus ceveche was excellent and the shrimp ceveche was good too. Service was OK, took about an hour for lunch for a family of 7. It was mid-afternoon and not busy. Beer was cold and the view of the port from the rooftop terrace made it worthwhile.

We came to the old port first when we arrived in Rocky Point and were looking for somewhere good to eat. A family walked out of Iguana Banana saying how great it was, so we took their word! They had seating a few flights of stairs up, which worked for us since it had awesome views! Shrimp tacos were great.

This place is one of several restaurants located on fish market row. We were invited (aggressively) by their street reps to enjoy their $5 breakfast which comes with a free cocktail. Eggs, potatoes, beans, tortillas, and a choice of meats make this $5 breakfast pretty darned good. I had bacon. Cris has chorizo which is a spicy Mexican sausage. We... More

We always eat here for lunch 3 tacos and a beer or margarita for $5. This time they said only Margarita no beer? The waiter seemed new and had to keep going and asking questions. Their food is very good, and a great view.
