Favorite restaurant in Mazatlan

In our week in Mazatlan, this was our favorite restaurant. It was recommended by one of my boyfriend's friends who is a frequent visitor to Mazatlan and did not disappoint. We were a little skeptical when our pulmonia pulled up because it is very small, kind of a hole in the wall. But the owner and... read more

Mojito's are excellent but be prepared to pay a 100 peso's for one. Chips and salsa cost extra even if you order food...which other places serve complimentary.

I had read about Carolo's and Lucia's for many year and this year I demanded that we give it a try. The owners are very friendly and are more than happy to discuss the menu, the beautiful city of Mazatlan or world events. My husband had the sugared pork chops and they were delicious. I had a couple od bites... More

We have family members that visit Matzalan at least twice a year. We kept hearing stories about Carlos and Lucia's and what a great place it is and about the Mojito's. Their reviews to us were off a bit, this place is Awesome! It's not just the food and spirits that make it special,it's the family that owns this place... More

It was OK but we will probably not go back. The Mohitos were good. Don't get the meat nachos. Food was just OK at best. Service was good as we were the only patrons in the restaurant.

We had a great mojito on our first visit, so went back for dinner and another mojito. Mojito good again but dinner was a bit disappointing. Too much bun not enough filling in my Cuban sandwich, same for my friends shrimp sandwich. The place was very crowded so that's a good sign. We went back again for a mojito and... More

We stopped in here after hearing and reading reviews about how great this restaurant is. I would have to give it 5 stars for friendliness--everyone there made a special point to say hello to us and ask us about our food. Food was very good...although we weren't too hungry so just had cuban sandwich (excellent from one who used to... More

My husband, three sons and I loved our meal (yes, I came back) here. Carlos and his daughter could not be more gracious. They speak perfect English and the food is delicious. Carlos even helped me find a phone number and make a local call. Wonderful people!
