We love Carlos & Lucia's! The cheese enchiladas are fantastic! We eat there early in the evening when the restaurant is quiet, and have had great conversations with Carlos about Mexican and Cuban history and economy.

The restaurant is beside the road but quite close to the El Cid tower in the centre of the golden zone.The decor is quaint but interesting however there is no view. The food is really good and the drinks are excellent.

Food was good and service was outstanding. I am not a mojito fan but after watching, and smelling the wonder mint being crushed, I had to try one once the sister in law had one. Ribs were good the imperial shrimp to die for. Don't let the entrance fool you this is a great place with a nice ambiance which... More

Probably the best food I've had in Mazatlan. While it was not busy, this did not deter us. Further, it allowed for great conversation with the owner. This is a 'must eat' for anyone visiting Mazatlan.

Wonderful restaurant, ended up coming three times during our 10 days in Mazatlan, despite the fact that we always try to go to a new place. Carlos was extremely welcoming and friendly! The food was great - both breakfast and dinner! The mojitos were to die for.

What a great restaurant. Huge variety of menu items and home made guacamole too. This is by far one of the best restaurants in all of Mazatlan!! The owners have great personality and so much fun which makes this restaurant even better!
