Always full, must attendants are local, is in the Malecón so the view is wonderful and you are just in the Old Mazatlán,

I went with my nephews and have very good attention, the owner is always around giving a special touch to the place, he makes everyone to feel like a "big shot"

This was always a must stop for us the past 5 years. Last March we walked up to the place and found out it was basically pizza. Don't get me wrong, we love pizza but we were not expecting this. We loved their diverse menu and the best margaritas in Maz! I was the biggest disappointment of our trip. In... More

This used to be a fantastic place but for the past 2 years it has fallen steadily. The ocean view is good as was the service but the food is just O.K.

Waiter recomended the fish with shrimp = it was cold, raw and covered with a bland green sauce. we also ordered the chicken fahitas, they would have been ok if they had any flavour, which they didn't. My son ordered a burger, which was greasy and tasted weird. The potato wedges that came with the burger were good, and as... More

Fish is fresh, well prepared. Cheaper & not as noisy as Shrimp Bucket! Friendly staff. Great place to watch sunsets as right across from beach.

But the food here is really good and quite inexpensive. We had our best shrimp meal here at this tiny spot on the south end of the malecon near the Historical District. The shrimp were well done and the saffron rice was a very nice complement. Service was a bit slow, but the wait was worth it as the food... More

We both had shrimp dishes that were very good! I ordered the green salad, and it was GINORMOUS! Delicious, but huge! I ate less than half of it since I was saving room for the shrimp. We were seated inside, but asked if we could move outdoors when a table opened up. No problemo! Right after the sunset, an outdoor... More

Our first two choices for lunch were closed, so we went to La Cueva del Leon for a casual lunch. We weren't disappointed! Excellent salad with shrimp, nachos (a bit soggy), beer (of course)

We lived in Mazatlan for a year in 2010. We experienced a lot. Of all the places this is the only one that hands down we felt they cared. The food wasn't only good and consistent but priced right. These people are happy and want your experience to be good. If you go nowhere else go here. Don't expect a... More

Their shrimp stuffed poblana is wonderful! The portions are very generous and the view great. I keep returning.
