The food was pretty good, beautiful setting. We went in the slow season after the hurricanes so there wasn't much activity.

One of the best seafood restaurants is right on the beach in Playa Bruja. They serve fresh-caught wild shrimp and lobster 50 different ways (really!). This was some of the best food we've eaten in our lifetime, and we've been all over the world.

You know when you have your favorite spot and you don't want anyone to know about cause then everyone goes there. This is it. Breakfast, lunch and Dinner. Sunrise and Sunset. The food is great, fresh and good portions. The Bananas Flambe is a great show and very good. Coconut shrimp is my favorite, the flautas are like NO other.... More

We went on a Sunday and they had live music as well as the Mariachi band. The food is excellent and you have to try the Mexican coffee as well as the flaming bananas. Staff is very nice and the place is right on the water. Would highly reccomend.

Especially when the tide is out. Many people to watch, if you are lucky you may see dolphins, whales, turtles hatching. We've even saved starfish. People tend to be friendly and the vendors are respectful.

I consider this a must do in Mazatlan. For me, this was one of the most ultimate Mazatlan experiences i had during my week there. Great food, drinks and music by the ocean. Prices were very reasonable considering how pricey Mazatlan can be. I came here with a tour. Shared a table with strangers and we all quickly became friends.... More
