Fun night

Heard so much about restaurant decided to visit on Sunday night. Arrived around 630 packed. I guess it is a local spot for families who spend all day at beach then go for dinner. We had at least a 45 minute wait. Once in it was worth it. Food really good and plentiful had coconut shrimp delicious... read more

Great place to enjoy fresh seafood, great Mexican food and happy hour that rivals most places in Mazatlán. Amazingly fresh seafood...like an unbelievable shrimp cocktail with shrimp so pink and tasty surrounded by a horseradish cocktail sauce that sparks your appetite for the rest of the meal. Awesome!! Dinner on two occasions...one night it was Carne Asada expertly prepared and... More

We ate here twice, both times for lunch as we were staying at the Riu just down the beach. I had the lobster and coconut shrimp both times. The waiters were friendly. They do tequila tastings by putting bottles of tequila on your table for awhile. One was almond flavoured and one was coffee flavoured. There was one large bottle... More

We love the location and the updated decor. The wait staff was gracious. We loved the Fish ceviche! I have never had tastier ceviche! Even during the busy holiday season, we were able to be seated and served promptly.

We ate at Playa Bruja twice during our recent stay. For the first meal my spouse and I both ordered the Tequila Shrimp, one of our favorites. Our friends ordered (separate checks) fajitas and quesadilla's. We waited for our meals while working our way through two baskets of chips and salsa Finally our waiter set up to prepare our tequila... More

We found Mr. Lionso on our last night in Mazatlán, April 2. It's set on a beautiful Playa Bruja, and the view is out of this world! It's located just north of the RIU hotel on Camaron Sabalo, near Nuevo Mazatlán. We arrived via pulmonia, and the restaurant was already very crowded. We had to wait less than 10 minutes... More

I Just visit this restaurant in March 2015 after reading good reviews. The food was good and so was the service, and the décor and table settings were festive and authentic. They also had a live band playing Sinaloan music. The highlight here however is the amazing view of the beach and Mazatlán Centro in the distance(especially at night) If... More

Located at the very northern end of Mazatlan, well past the Golden Zone, this is a nice beach-front restaurant. We went for dinner however, and it was too dark to see any of the ocean. Probably a spectacular view at lunch. Food was OK. Enchiladas had their own section so I thought they'd be good, but were just ok. Instead... More
