The bacon wrapped prawns were great. My fish dish was kinda dry. Great service. Not on the waterfront so only a partial view from a few tables.

Been to Rocky Point several times, and always wanted to try the Blue Marlin. Was not disappointed. Great location in town, great ambiance.

This place has had some pretty good reviews, but I don't get it. I have only eaten there once and I was not impressed, maybe just an off night. It is a very small place, I most likely won't go back

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.
