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!

Looking for a great home-cooked meal in Mazatlan? This is the place. We had eaten here many years ago and went searching for the restaurant. It was just as delicious as years ago. Carlos greeted us at the door as if we were members of the family. The food was fresh and homecooked, so filling that after our late lunch... More

Warm family environment. Food was Cuban/Mexican and outstanding. Carlos and his daughter greeted us and talked to us while we waited for our meal.

Carlos met us at the door and invited us in. He was very gracious and accommodating. His daughter was our server...a delightful young woman. The service was exceptional and the food was fresh and very authentically Cuban. We have visited Mazatlan 20 times and this was one of the most enjoyable meals of all. We'll be back
