I think that Picazone is my favorite lunch spot in all the world. Set apart from the city by five miles of dirt roads, the remarkable home/restaurant built by Alejandro & Imelda Igartua sits directly on the shoreline of the Sea of Cortez. They opened five/six years ago with a two burner propane stove and small bar. Now several tables fill an expansive dining area, a wonderful home has risen on top of an expanded kitchen and cozy seating area. As if the location and the furnishings weren’t grand enough, the food is – to die for. My favorite are the tacones – wraps filled with a diner’s choice of fish, scallops, shrimp or vegetables. Mix and match. “Para serverle” is the guiding principal of Alejandro’s personal and magnificent service. His goal : to make each of his guests feel as if they are at home. He and his wife succeed every time.
Picazone is open Tuesday/Saturday- Noon – Sunset. Head north of town on Calle Davis ..and when the pavement runs out .. just keep going. When you find the two-story yellow ochre colored home with palapa roof near the end of the road, you’ve arrived. Bring a suit on a warm sunny day and treat yourself to a swim.
