Balboa Island

Picante Martin’s Mexican Restaurant


Picante Martin’s has made Balboa Island it’s home for nearly 10 years now. We feel great pride and enjoyment in having the ability to share our style of Mexican cuisine with our neighbors. If you’re from the island or if you’re a sightseer, then drop in to Picante Martin’s for a fresh breakfast or lunch, and experience what some call Balboa’s hidden treasure.
