Fantastic food and Service

A great restaurant with excellent decor and courteous service. Greeted at the door. Good service - sometimes the staff was too busy talking with each other to notice us trying to get their attention quietly. The food was absolutely outstanding.

OK, Los Mochis is not Los Cabos, but the town is clean and neat and full of life. Right downtown, close to the popular Santa Anita Hotel is El Farallon. The Best Western Hotel is only a few minutes walk away. The restaurant is nicely appointed, there are private rooms available, and it looks like a patio in the summer.... More

Locals recommended this was the best restaurant in town. We agree--it was a delight from the ambiance to the food to the service. The four of us each ordered something different--we tasted each other's and it was hard pressed to select the best. Three of us has shrimp each with a different sauce--yum! The grouper, portuguese style was amazing.

The seafood here was very fresh although I felt that the rice for the sushi was a bit too dry. However, all the food I had here tasted great and the waiters were very kind as well. If you ever pass by Los Mochis, definitely eat at this place!

This place was recommended by other fellow travelers so we had to try it. The food, the presentation, the staff was well worth the experience.

The restaurant is very presentable, the service excel all standards, as did the food. When two times in a row, and what we did was that we order several plates and everyone got a bit of each one, so we almost try all the dishes, it was simply exquisite.

Was there twice, late at night. Service in the restaurant, below, far exceeds the rooftop lounge top. Found it very strange not one female server. Food was very good, but this is central to the ocean, all fish dishes should be fresh.

I have been going to this same restaurant for almost 40 years and it keeps getting better. The town is located on the Sea of Cortes (Baja California) so the seafood is fresh and the natural preparations are unbeatable. I have visited their sister location in Guadalajara but nothing beats the charm of the original. They set the standard for... More
