Had an amazing lunch at Iguana Banana this week. The waiter Angel was friendly and accommodating. The big hit was the Shrimp Handle. We had two orders at the table and it was by far the best thing we ate during our week in Puerto Penasco. We will definitely be back!

Party of 8 went for late supper. I had the coconut shrimp. 8 fan tailed shrimp, baked potato, best rice ever, fresh salad, the guacamole was to die for. Drinks tasted like no alcohol in them. I would highly recommend eating here. Average meal was $15.

Went on a Saturday for their $5 breakfast. Choose any breakfast item. Comes with eggs, beans, potatoes, and tortilla. Nice views of the market below and the sea beyond from the 2nd or 3rd floors. Food was plenty but average. Slow service, even though we were the only customers. I was turned off when I heard one of the employees... More

When we walked in they offered free shots of tequila which I don't typically drink. The tequila was smooth. The staff was very friendly and helped us have a... More

We've been going to Rocky Point all of our lives and have always enjoyed it. Iguana Banana is a great place to go up on the 2nd or 3rd floor and grab a cocktail and enjoy the view, sunshine and relax. The staff is friendly and low pressure.

Ok fish tacos, the fish was steamed and kinda boring. The octopus ceveche was excellent and the shrimp ceveche was good too. Service was OK, took about an hour for lunch for a family of 7. It was mid-afternoon and not busy. Beer was cold and the view of the port from the rooftop terrace made it worthwhile.
