Written by’s Local Expert


La Negrita Restaurante is loved by all who visit and it's a must add to your restaurant bucket list in Rocky Point! This outdoor dining venue offers classic Mexican dishes and freshness you can taste.

Location & Environment

La Negrita is a hidden gem in terms of location - it's off the main street and the Malecon where a majority of popular restaurants are found. But, it's so worth the visit. Many locals and tourists have claimed La Negrita as their favorite restaurant in all of Rocky Point!

As an open-air restaurant, they have a few tables in their main seating area facing out to the street. In addition, they have a back room with extra tables and beautiful desert murals along the walls. If you're simply looking for a sweet treat, you can order churros next door at their quick-service dessert shop.

The service here is top-tier - the team is friendly, accommodating, and always smiling!

Must Try Food at La Negrita

This restaurant is famous for their incredible seafood dishes! If you're a seafood lover, you will definitely be visiting here more than once. Further, this is a vegan-friendly restaurant. La Negrita has breakfast, lunch, and dinner options that can accommodate a vegan diet.

Here's what you should try:

Seafood Bar

Listed on the menu as "Barra de Mariscos," this translates to Seafood Bar in English. These large square plates offer the opportunity to have a little taste of everything in a "ceviche" style. Ignite your taste buds with the Campechana Seca - a combination of shrimp, octopus (pulpo), prawns,


Not only is this one of the best things you'll eat in Rocky Point, but it's also one of the most photogenic! These arrive steaming out of a volcanic rock bowl. Choose from vegan, shrimp, chicken, and more. We highly recommend going with the 7 mares which offers the most extensive mixture of seafood out of all the volcanes.

Mexican Favorites

Though seafood is their claim to fame, they also have tasty favorites for non-seafood fans. Choose from a wide selection of dishes including quesadillas, chichangas, flautas, sopas, huaraches, and more! They even have hamburgers and pizzas.

Desayuno (Breakfast)

Visit during breakfast time for an expansive offering of classic Mexican breakfast foods including huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, and enchiladas. Alternatively, try their omelettes or pancakes!


Sweeten the deal with some of their home-made churros. The sweet, cinnamon flavor on a hot churro is perfectly balanced with cold vanilla ice cream. Freshly fried next door, you can choose to have plain churros, a churro split, or their popular churrimocha. Additionally, they have other topics you can add for a small charge. This includes options such as chamoy, queso, and more!

Local Tips

  • Cash only - they do not accept credit card payments.
