Consistent with quality of food, service and great happy crowd. Should have reservations during weekends. The stuffed fish is with camarones, crab & pulpo (octopus) and cheese, pretty hard to beat...very good. One of my favorites is the fettucine w/chicken, creamy (yes buttery) good. And right on the ocean, yes!!

Great food always. Never had a bad meal there. Beautiful views of the sunset were planning it every year so we have our last meal there before going home.

Right on the beach in the Golden Zone, this was a good spot for lunch. We had walked all through the Zone, and this place seemed both popular and casual. Definitely recommend the upper level, as the ground floor was crowded and noisy - the beach noise and music were intense. The upper floor was quieter and caught a light... More

Pancho's is a must. We always make sure to go there first, and as many more times as we can. The food is great and is the best of Mazatlan. The site is beautiful, right on the beach, local vendors are fun and respectful,

We stayed at El Cid Castilla Beach & I jogged down the first day to get menu for later. We later took bus for 10 Pecos from the hotel & got off at Central Market in historical district & walked around the hotspots. Picked up bus at Central Market for 10 Pecos to go back to hotel & stopped at... More

Service here was super amazing. They brought us a few shots and appetizers on the house. However, the menu didn't have much description for what some of the dishes were so we asked the server what he'd recommend. I ended up getting Huarache de Pancho but the steak fillets were very thin, chewy and hard to swallow (ordered medium-rare) and... More

Went to Panchos for lunch. Sat up on the 2nd level overlooking the beach. The food was good and the service was excellent! They give shot glasses of kahlua and cream etc. when you order drinks.
