Went here first night had the pasta with shrimp and clams. The clams were so good I ordered a dozen to take back to the hotel room, prices were good 40ish USD for a party of 6 meals and drinks.

Me and my family decided to go to the Blue Marlin based on TripAdvisor suggestions. The attended us well, and they also accommodated to making custom things for our little ones. Lemonade was good, the chips and cilantro sauce was also good. I ordered enchiladas,...More

The blue marlin was great. We went two nights in a row because it was so delicious! We got the flounder supremo, flounder au gratin, scallop ceviche, shrimp bisque, Carlos V shrimp, and seafood pasta. They were all spectacular for $10-13 each. Would return if...More

We randomly found this restaurant off the street and it was a great find! The staff and food were lovely. The cilantro avocado cream sauce that comes with the chips as an appetizer was amazing and all the ingredients were very fresh. We would definitely...More

Jose was an excellent host and the food, as always, was spectacular. The noisy restaurants on the ocean are fun, but if you want better food at a better price without the craziness, then the Blue Marlin is the best.

The Food was excellent along with the quiet atmosphere along with the wonderful service. The oysters (both raw and fried) were fantastic along with the coconut shrimp, I highly recommend both.

I recommended this place to my husband because of all the outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor. But, ultimately, the food wasn't as tasty here as we found at other (less popular?) places in the area, and the staff not nearly as welcoming and friendly.

The food was excellent and well priced. My crab-stuffed flounder was very tasty, with a delicate hollandaise on top. My husband loved the coconut shrimp so much he ordered a second one. The restaurant is small so try to get there before the dinner crowd.

Seafood options mostly, all very fresh. Not a lot of classic Mexican but they make fresh guacamole that's delicious and offer rice and beans. The menu is more upscale type dishes but good portions and really good.
