Of all of the Rocky Point Mexico Restaurants you could choose, La Casa del Capitan is the most often recommended as the number one place to watch the sun dip into the ocean. Maybe even see the fabled green flash!
Why are Peñasco sunsets so uniquely spectacular? Might be the mix of clear skies mixed with a touch of clouds from Baja, and just the right amount of humidity from the Sea of Cortez. One of the top things to do when the sky becomes a fiery light show, is to find exactly the right spot to take it all in.
Up on the tallest hill in town, the great big terrace seems to float between the sea and sky. As the magic sunset moment approaches, people whip out cameras and cell phones to get a shot to make everyone back home jealous. You'll find La Casa del Capitan on Av Camino el Agua near the Malecon. It's also next door to the popular Pane e Vino Italian restaurant.
The restaurant is striking in color, making it very hard to miss! There is plenty of seating along the balconies to ensure that every guest gets the stunning views they came here for. Additionally, you can count on strolling Mariachis stopping by your table. Offering to sing classic love songs as dolphins show off in the ocean and the sun puts on a show above the water.
What's on the menu?
There is every Mexican and seafood dish you would expect on the menu. From fresh citrus ceviche to flounder and enchiladas. We recommend ordering anything seafood as that is their specialty! Reviews particularly rave about the ceviche and other shrimp dishes.
The strong drinks come in big goblets to add to the fun. Visitors particularly love their blended margaritas - they're dangerously good!
Though they have an expansive menu, La Casa del Capitan is not famous for their food. Rather, it's famous for the refreshing cocktails and stunning views provided from every angle.
