Long time favorite for the food, marred by time share pitch

My family has been coming to this restaurant for over a decade, and the seafood has never failed to disappoint. On our most recent trip the food was still great. The service was great, they sang for a birthday, and brought out a balloon hat. Thoroughly embarrassing a member of our group. They... read more

It's hard to say this was one of the best meals ever in a restaurant. We have had many. Here the view of the ocean is spectacular. The service is wonderful as is the food-consistently. To me that's a great combination.

If you like to eat shrimp you need to eat here. If you prefer another type of seafood you should come here also. Generous portions of fresh seafood delivered with courtesy combined with an excellent seaside view make this place a must.

We were told this was the best fish restaurant in Mazatlan ... we were not disappointed - it's easy to get to - EVERYONE knows about it.

On the beach, nice and big upper scale. But prices are around $10. Great service. Food is wonderful.

Sat steps from the beach which was nice. Had the pescado sarandeado for two which was okay, expected snapper but it was dorado with lots of bones and very little seasoning. A caution for people walking there is that on both corners of the street leading to the restaurant are very agressive time share sales people. They will scream at... More

several people at our resort recommended this restaurant and we're glad we took their advice. We had a seafood platter, stuffed shrimp, scallop appetizer and two large Margueritas for $59. What a value. Platter had two types of oysters (my favorite) mahi mahi, tuna, shrimp and lobster (which I didn't get to taste because my wife at it while I... More

We stopped by this restaurant as part of our Mazatlan city tour when we got off our cruise ship. I think this tour company in particular all stopped by here as the parking lot was pretty much full of their vans! Right on the water with a nice beach. They let us hang out there all afternoon and we swam... More

I had grilled shrimp that was good and fresh. The service was good, but the guy was confused when asked to split the bill 3 ways....which... More

My sister and I decided to dine just before sunset. We sat outside on the open air lanai. The sunset on that day was breath taking. There was a mariachi band playing further down the beach. Service was excellent, and the food was sublime. Since Mazitlan is the shrimp capital of Mexico, we went with shrimp , shrimp and more... More
