Top Dining in Puerto Peñasco

We’ve talked often in our blog and press about how authentic Mexican cuisine and seafood is a big part of what makes Puerto Peñasco dining so special, so here’s some more information about some of the most famous and best spots in our town.

JJ’s Cantina

The most well-known eatery in Rocky Point, it’s located in Cholla Bay and is popular with both tourists and locals for its affordable, tasty bar food menu and supreme views of the beach and the local scene. If you want the chance to mingle with people, this is the spot to go – especially during Spring Break.

Kaffee Haus

As any Midwestern American will tell you, a great breakfast is important to start your day off right. Kaffee Haus is universally acclaimed as the best breakfast joint in Puerto Penasco, offering American and European style breakfast alongside a renowned bakery. There’s also vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Important note: If you’re hungry for a pastry, or want to get in right away, arrive early. There’s limited seating, and if you’re late, you can expect a wait.

Blue Marlin

Reviewers rave about this Mexican and seafood restaurant’s coconut shrimp and margaritas, and it’s earned TripAdvisor.com’s Certificate of Excellence. Whether you’re looking for seafood or Mexican, this is a place worth checking out. Like Kaffee Haus, it’s vegetarian friendly and includes gluten-free meals.

Pollo Lucas

As you might expect from its name, Pollo Lucas is all about Mexican-style chicken – so much so that their menu is chicken, beans, rice, and tortillas. This small menu allows for excellent quality that’s made it a popular place with both locals and tourists amidst thatched hut atmospheric dining.

La Curva Restaurant and Sports Bar

If you’re hankering after a steak, La Curva is a steakhouse that also has seafood and Mexican food. Surprisingly, there’s also vegetarian options, so it’s not just a place for the carnivores in your group. Menus are available in both Spanish and English, and reviewers consistently comment on the restaurant’s stellar service from its staff.
