Even if you don't like cilantro, you'll like Cilantro's!

Went for the buffet. It was excellent. Outdoor seating. Delicious food that was well-prepared. Authentic native dishes. Festive atmosphere. You won't be disappointed.

Went to Cilantro's last year and ended up in a face-off with the manager. The portions were tiny, the quality was lacking, and the prices had escalated. Not many people eating there as they probably felt the same way I did. In the past it has been great, but apparently a change in management meant a change in service and... More

Ponchos has always been a "must" for us each time we visit Mazatlán. Even though we have an all inclusive at our time share, Ponchos always is worth the extra dollars. Their environment right on the beach makes for a romantic setting watching the sun go down over the Pacific while enjoying a great Mexican meal. Their menu is interesting... More

Cilantro's is on the beach in the Pueblo Bonito Hotel. It is open for lunch and dinner. The waiters are great and so is the food. It is a very nice restaurant. You will be glad that you went to Cilantro's to eat.

Starting with stale chips and mediocre salsa, my girlfriend and I were not thrilled with a once highly recommended restaurant. Cream of pumpkin and shrimp soup and cheese soup were obviously made from powder packets. The breaded shrimp were not the worst as they were slightly over cooked, however my girlfriend's fettuccine was inedible. Heavy creamed sauce that coagulated in... More

Located above the beach at Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán, we very much enjoyed our meal and service. What was particularly nice was that the meal was proportioned perfectly, and priced right. So much of the time, we waddle out of restaurants after overeating. As our last dinner in Mazatlán this trip, it was perfect. Oscar was a kick.

Ate lunch here the last week of May 2015. The food was very good and the view was spectacular. Service was average. Since this was included in an all-inclusive package, we will most likely return the next time we're at the resort. Recommended.

Food was always good. Oscar and Ernesto were entertaining. Be careful that you get, and pay for the drink you ordered. Even though we were all-inclusive our servers added a couple extra drinks to our tab one night. And how (and why would you) you can water down a martini on the rocks?

Great Cream of Pumpkin and Shrimp soup. I recommend it highly. Good salads and sandwiches too. The view is lovely, right on the beach so you can listen to the surf while you dine.

We had a great dinner and found the prices reasonable. You can't beat the view! Service was good. I would go back.
