Love the fondue shrimp and the drinks. They don't take credit cards and their exchange rate is terrible if you pay in USD. Pay with pesos and all will be good!

Excellent seafood dishes and Mexican food! There were two dishes we wanted which were not on the menu. They prepared them for us anyway. The Dolphin margarita and regular margaritas are excellent!

We ate here twice on our last trip. Highly recommend sitting in the upper dining room which feels like a Captain's Cabin in an old sailing ship. The view over the old port is fantastic, and there is less traffic going by your table. Do...More

The Friendly Dolphin features mainly Mexican cuisine dishes. The local products like the blue shrimp from the Sea of Cortes and flounder are used in our menu. Open daily for lunch and diner. The Friendly Dolphin is the home of the fish La Farga style a recipe of our own. The view towards the port where the shrimp boats dock is a plus.
