There were 6 of us when we decided to just pick a restaurant at random while things were gearing up for Carnaval in Mazatlan. We had just drunk our required "cervezas" to watch the sunset. The food we got was so surprisingly good it took us all by surprise. I had tacos which were done to perfection (carne asada) and... More

If you are looking for soup both the tortilla soup and the chicken consommé are great. The tortilla soup is served with the broth on the side so the tortillas stay crisp. The chicken consommé is chock full of chicken, rice and veggie. Yum.

In just a few short years El Faro restaurant on the Malecon has become a "go to" place for inexpensive quality food. Sitting outside looking out over the Pacific ocean or inside the restaurant is always a delight. The food is simple...no French sauces here. But, you will find a quality meal and a friendly staff awaiting you. The prices... More

I was so happy to see all the positive reviews about my favorite restaurant. I've seen folks eating there and enjoying it - so cool folks took the time to let everyone know about our local hangout and eatery. Cafe El Faro is easy to find. In Olas Alta - look for Hotel Bel Mar - or ask anyone.... There... More

My wife and I live in Mazatlan for 6 months a year and eat out frequently. El Faro is one of very few restaurants that we can count on as always being good. The waiters are helpful and will fill any requests you may have. The menu is varied with something for everyone. Traditional Mexican fare and plenty of north... More
