Colin's Cantina

Written by’s Local Expert


What if you found your favorite home town Bistro on your next trip to Rocky Point? Thats Colin’s Cantina. You are almost guaranteed to make new friends here. Also, the menu is heavy on comfort food favorites from the States, like Bacon Blueberry Pancakes. Additionally there are dishes that seem to taste their best only when you travel south of the border, like Shrimp Cocktails! Are Margaritas a ‘dish’?

Family friendly Colin’s is at Princesa de Peñasco, one of towns most popular Resorts. Shaded patio tables sit next to the grassy, palm tree lined Resort grounds, making it a terrific spot to enjoy bottomless Mimosas on Sunday. Or, one-of-a-kind BBQ Short Rib Tacos, smoked on-site. The staff treats everyone like old friends (because many of them are).  Additionally, the restaurant hosts plenty of events which make for great mixers. For example, join them on Thursdays for Gringo Bingo and live patio music at night!

The bar is a great place to socialize, or watch a game while enjoying finger food with one of Colin’s uniquely tasty original mixed drinks. Try the maple bacon Margarita and expand your flavor horizons!

When it comes to affordability, Colin's Cantina is a great choice - especially for larger groups and families! Breakfast entrees average around $6.00 USD. Alternatively, lunch and dinner entrees average approximately $7.50 USD. So, even with a big family, you won't break the bank at this local favorite!

Colin's Cantina Favorites:

BBQ Short Rib Tacos

Colin’s fires up the smoker early every Tuesday so that by 3pm, the best Taco Tuesday in town can get underway. Caramelized onions and a unique, creamy/spicy salsa sit in contrast to the tangy sweet rib meat, taking these tacos to another level. Invariably, however many you order will not be enough, so expect to flag your waiter down for another round. Just remember, they only make a limited amount, so when they are gone they are gone. At least until next week! Colin's is also famous for their burgers so there's always a backup if they run out!

Mama’s Bacon Blue Pancakes

A breakfast highlight at Colins, two large pancakes generously dotted with whole blueberries, along with bits of bacon throughout. Big fluffy cakes, crunchy and salty bacon, tangy blueberries, maple syrup on top makes these exceptionally tasty. Want to try something really unique? Order the Jalapeno pancakes! Though they sound out there, they're actually quite popular.

Craft Beers

You can become familiar with a whole new world of beer at Colins. Along with old favorites like Tecate and XX, you will find offerings from some of Northern Mexico’s most well liked micro-breweries. Artisanal beer is a ‘thing’ around Tijuana and Ensenada, so check out this trend that has created some award winning brews. Colin's actually carries the largest selection of premier Mexican Craft Beers in town!

Colins is such a great little hidden gem in our community. The stand-out meals are definitely their burgers and bacon wrapped shrimp! They have a great selection of appetizers which for me is so important for a restaurant like Colins. It's a great little place to go with a couple of friends, order a few beers and have some appetizers while you watch Sunday football matches.

They have the best pancakes with bacon and blueberries. Whenever we can, my family and I go to Colin's for breakfast. We are also a fan of going to Bingo on Thursday afternoons. In addition to being cheap, it has an incredible view of the sea.
