We stayed five nights at the Bahia Pez Resort and ate twice at Picante. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable with a beautiful view of the bay. We ordered the Sea Bass, Mahi Mahi and fish tacos, which were all excellent. (Kids had chicken strips w/fries which made them happy too.) Mojitos were large, strong and delicious. Great service by Caesar. Wish we could go back right now!

We ddn't have a bad meal. We ate there twice and when we brought back fish we caught while deep sea fishing, they did an excellent job of preparing it for us! Cesar and Francisco are top notch!

Picante offers good food and great entertainment. Visit on Wednesday, and enjoy the music of Alexis Jimenez. Friendly, kind and charming, Alex is the consummate host - he spreads joy, and makes everyone feel welcome.

Came for cocktails and snacks. Ceviche was very good. Bring your towels and batting suit. The beach area is quiet, secluded, calm, and clean. View is very pretty. Saw whales off in the distance while dining.

Had a great experience at Picante yesterday evening. Came in after a long travel day and enjoyed good cocktails and some excellent food. Took a leisurely walk on the beach with the family between courses. Mixed seafood platter was really nice.
