The Top Waterfront Restaurants in Rocky Point, Mexico
The PointAptly named, The Point rests on a dock jutting out into the Gulf, providing the only true panoramic views of the ocean you'll find in scenic Rocky Point. Here, you can experience the joy of an open ocean meal without the seasickness -- and with much higher quality fare than you'll find on your run of the mill sunset cruise! The crown jewel of the menu has to be the Sea Bass for two, a lightly fried Sea Bass spiced to flavorful perfection and topped off with a cadre of limes. Flaky, tangy, and delicious, this is truly a can't miss dish, and a perfect accompaniment to the best view in Rocky Point.
Wrecked at the ReefIf you want to eat, drink, then get right back to the beach, Wrecked at the Reef is the beachside restaurant you've been looking for. With a back patio that leads right onto the sandy shores of the Gulf, it's easy to grab a bite then grab your surfboard and hit the waves -- though we recommend waiting at least half an hour first! Highlights of the menu include the Hangover special, a greasy and delicious home style breakfast plate that is perfect for the morning after a long night of beach partying. Also worth trying are the Fish and Shrimp Foil Tent -- served in a spicy and flavorful broth -- and the Grilled flounder, swimming in a lemon garlic sauce. But, let's be honest: this is a bar, and the bar food is the true attraction here.
Sr. Amigo Restaurant & BarSr. Amigo Restaurant & Bar is yet another fantastic option for those looking to eat a delicious meal with a view. Located on the shore just off of I8 in El Puerto, this centrally located restaurant is a tourist favorite, both for its clean and stylish trappings and the quality of its offerings. From whole fried fish to burgers to tacos and more, Sr. Amigo's offers a varied menu stacked with delicious options -- regardless of your cravings. In the mood for fish fresh off the boat? Sr. Amigo's lightly fried whole fish is one of the best dishes you'll find in Rocky Point. Of course, if you're in the mood for something a bit more "traditional", the pollo fajitas are a crowd pleaser, while the Campechana -- mixed seafood served in a citrus-y tomato sauce -- is a fresh and flavorful dish sure to get your mouth watering.
Marisco's El MalaconPerhaps my favorite on this list, Mariscos El Malecon is the perfect spot to catch some sun, watch the waves, and eat some of the more decadent seafood you'll find in Rocky Point -- and other favorites, of course. The Chile Rellenos, doused in cheese, crema, and a delicious sauce, are worth the price of admission themselves -- but it is the Scallop Aguachile that gets the gold star here. Flavorful and clean, this citrus based dish is one of the top dishes you'll have on your stay here in Rocky Point, and one you simply can't miss out on! If raw seafood isn't for you, however, you can't go wrong with the eggs with red and green chile sauce.
