If I could write a one-word review, it would be PAELLA!!! - but Trip Advisor won't allow it. Mazatlan has many restaurants all competing to serve the best garlic shrimp, coconut shrimp, fish filets, tacos gobernador, etc. Sometimes you want something different, this is something different.
The menu is an eclectic offering of Spanish foods. You can choose small plates to share (tapas) or entrees. We choose, of course, Paella for two as who has saffron at home anyway? Paella is offered three ways: vegetarian, seafood and our favorite - Valencia with shrimp, clams, chicken, pork and chorizo. Yumm! The huge pan is brought table side and your plates are filled with plenty left over for second or take home.
The service is very professional by Mazatlan standards as is the ambiance with cloth napkins, tablecloths, etc. Our seasoned server did not miss a beat and we never felt rushed and always felt looked after.
Tons of great food in Mazatlan. If you are hanging out in the Golden Zone--add this to your list.
