The Best

We always order the seafood parella and it is enough food for four to six people. It is served with a candle under the HUGE bowl to keep it warm. It is a very impressive dish.

We usually eat here twice per visit. The food is outstanding and the service is even better. The prices are amazing for the quality of the food. Get there around sunset time to see some spectacular views.

Have been going back for three years but this year disappointing. We had reservations , was about 10 minutes late they honored reservations but we had to wait about another 25 minutes before we sat down. The food was just ok. My sons girlfriend got the Mexican plate that wasn't as good as another eatery she said. I was looking... More

We went to the location across from Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan. They make the salsa right at your table to your specifications. The food was excellent. My 10 year old daughter doesn't eat much and is very picky. They were gracious to prepare her something simple off menu to my specifications and it was perfect! We enjoyed watching the waiter prepare... More

Pancho's is a must stop every year and we are never disappointed. The only problem is what to order as everything on thier menu is so good. I especially love the deep fried stuffed pepper appetizer that comes free. There were 6 of us and everyone really enjoyed thier dinner.

This past week a group of 4 (including 2 teens) went to Pancho's. Even though it was busy, we were seated right away, upstairs at the open air table right next to the beach. The food: salmon with mango sauce cooked perfectly both times (my daughter ordered it twice), and my friend's daughter lover her shrimp fettuccini. Our second visit... More

Panchos sits above the beach with incredible views. In my opinion, the shrimp are the best item on the menu. Enough so that I went back to have them again. The setting is wonderful and often musicians will come by to entertain. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The food is delicious. What a terrific casual environment.

We always end our visit with a very nice dinner and we decided to go walking distance from our hotel. Pancho's was grand. We enjoyed a seat by the window and listened to the waves crashing and watched the lights of Old Mazatlan twinkle below. My husband had a stuffed fish (shrimp, octopus...) and he couldn't stop raving. I had... More

We have always loved the location, gracious service, and delightful menu! This was a busy season, and the hustling beach area was fun to be a part of--from afar! We ordered the Tequila Queso, and it was so, so, so good.
