Surf's Up treats their vegan and vegetarian customers well. While there menu changes, there is always a good choice for me. The food is fresh and interesting. We like the Saturday music performances, but you will need a reservation. Bring a swimsuit so you can take a dip in the ocean and make it a really fun day.

My husband and I travel to Mazatlan several times a year and always go to Surf's Up at least twice each time. Everything is fresh and delicious! One of the best restaurants in Mazatlan!!!

I wanted to keep this beautiful restaurant to myself, but that wouldn't be fair. I so enjoyed a wonderful lunch here and can not say enough about the terrific food and the amazing service in such a beautiful secluded location. I enjoyed a delicious smoked salmon platter with avocado, cream cheese and a stunning curried chutney relish - all served... More

I honestly think this food is in ..if not the top.3 the best I have ever eaten! Everything is home made. Her soups are exquisite! The Hamburger #1 ( bourbon, blue cheese, apples and caramelized apples is out of this world! For sure, this is a very special place. The staff is amazing, always

It's too bad this gem of a place is so far from hotels. We stayed at El Cid Marina and it was a $20 ride round trip. The driver just waited for us because it was too far to go grab another customer and be back for us in an hour. We were the only people there the entire hour.... More

Wonderful staff, fun, relaxed atmosphere. In from the beach or car is ok. Food is outstanding. I would highly recommend any soup they make as they are all perfect. Everything is fresh and really good, the staff is wonderful as well as Leanne the owner.

This Surfs Up restaurant is off the beaten trail, 2 kilometres of gravel road... But so worth it. Owned by a Canadian , this has such a lovely north of the border taste. I personally had the French toast dish called "Still Dreaming" and it is right. Because after you have finished and left the building.. You are still dreaming... More
