Knowing the Rocky Point Restaurants before a vacation to the beautiful shores of Puerto Penasco is just smart. Just as easily as great meals can enhance a stay, bad food can ruin one. Rocky Point, Sonora is one of the best ways to spend some hard-earned relaxation time. When you’re not out swimming, lounging on the sandy beaches, you’re going to need to eat. And you’re probably going to want to eat well. Below are a few of the very best eating and dining options in all of Puerto Penasco.

If you are hungry, then there are few places in the world better to find yourself than Puerto Penasco. Downtown, the resort, and the beach areas have tons of food options. These include cheap taco trucks, fully-stocked supermarkets and high-class fine dining establishments. However, if you want to avoid the “tourist traps,” then it pays off to know where to look for food.

Mary’s is a good starting place for eating in Puerto Penasco. It is a little local establishment that is located in the bustling fish market area of town. They, quite fittingly, has a large variety of seafood dishes to choose from. It makes a wonderful place for either lunch or dinner and they serve a mean margarita to boot!

Another Puerto Penasco restaurant that you will want to try during your vacation is El Rincon de Regina. It is located at the very bottom of the steep, one-way street that leads out from the center of downtown. El Rincon de Regina is easy to find with the large neon signs on either side of the front door. The inside is small but the wait and the close quarters are worth it once you taste the food. With one of the best chefs in Rocky Point, El Rincon de Regina puts a twist on old-fashioned Mexican cuisine. They use primarily locally grown ingredients. While anything on the menu is tasty, the chicken mole and anything made with prickly pear cactus are heavenly.

The Friendly Dolphin is, despite its cutesy name, a cozy place to enjoy a lunchtime meal. It’s a little on the touristy side (not a lot of locals). But, sometimes that isn’t a very big deal (as in when you’re super starving after hours of swimming). The Friendly Dolphin has a number of dishes to choose from including a ton that kids are sure to love. Plus, the antiques and knick-knacks covering the restaurant’s walls are entertaining in themselves.


If fine dining is the route that you like to take while vacationing, then Rocky Point has it: Citron. The restaurant is in the Las Palomas Beach and Golf Resort and is 4 diamonds by the AAA. It offers mainly international cuisine and offers a little something for everyone. Sunday for brunch is one of the best times to head to Citron.

You can’t just subsist on lunches and dinners and luckily Rocky Point pulls through with some great breakfast fare, chiefly in the form of the Koffee Haus’s homemade bread and pastries. In addition to their breads, they have, obviously, a variety of coffees, and a good selection of heartier breakfast meals.

Finally, a trip to Puerto Penasco – or anywhere in Mexico really – isn’t complete without a late night stop at an authentic taco stand. There are plenty of stands jumbled around on the sidewalks and streets so you won’t have any trouble at all finding one. Even better is the fact that many of them are open to the wee hours of the morning (think four am), so you can get something satisfying in your belly after a late night of drinking. You’ll find the usual array of tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and so on at these stands.
