Puerto Azul Restaurant
The eye-catching mural above the front patio of the Puerto Azul Restaurant on Lincoln Avenue is artist Angel Rangelac2s rendition of the coast near MazatlA!n, Mexico. Depicted on the building is a bright blue bay, sandy beaches, towering mountains, tropical plants and a passenger ship anchored just offshore. Rangelac2s friends Eduardo and Sandra Orozco opened Puerto Azul about two months ago, and they carried the muralac2s vivid seaside theme inside through decorative touches that include Rangelac2s ceiling mural of sea turtles, octopuses, shark and fish.
The staff is friendly and the food is the best, nice atmosphere, and descent prices. Even though we moved to Sunnyvale, my fiance and I still make the drive frequently to eat here. My favorite dish is the chile relleno and an enchilada with green sauce. The tortas, the bistueq, and the chimichangas are really good too. Oh, and the chavelas (beer with lime) really compliments the meal and is the best in town!
The food is so delicouse and very authentic. I love the karaokee they have while you are waiting to be served and while you eat indoors or outdoors. You can request songs of your choice. The waiters are freindly and are there to serve you. It's one of my favorite restaurant's. I recommend this restaurant 100%.
Puerto Azul is a great little Mexican restaurant located in Willow Glen, specializing in inexpensive and authentic Mexican dishes. Their focus seems to be primarily on fish and seafood, but they offer plenty of the Mexican standards, too.
My wife and I have been there many times, and almost everytime we go we order the exact same dish: the chile verde chimichanga. Normally it's against my rules to order the same meal twice from a restaurant, but these chimichangas are so good, I just can't resist. The pork is marinated just right, and stays juicy and tender. The shell of the chimichanga is deep fried and flaky, a perfect complement to the meat. It's served with a side of rice and refried beans, along with guacamole and sour cream. The beans can sometimes be too salty, but the the guac never dissapoints.
Prices are low to mid-range, with most items on the menu ranging from $5-$15 per person. We can generally get out with a check for two around $25.
