Each time we eat here, the atmosphere is bad ... just at this restaurant. First time, there was a 4-wheeler sitting running on the beach blowing exhaust directly into the restaurant. It was because a couple was having their special dinner on the beach (catered by La Costa Marinera) and the vehicle was packing up their extra stuff. We ended up taking most of our food to go because the exhaust made us nauseated. It was Shrimp for 2 -- great sauces, but also very oily. At least all that oil made it easy to fry up the next day for lunch in our little kitchenette. The following year when we came back, a table in the middle of the outside seating area was chainsmoking. There are no-smoking signs all over but the waiters wouldn't talk to the table about it because they were "friends of the owner" and were "about to leave" (right, that's why they kept on ordering more shots on ice). We won't be back. There are plenty of other wonderful seafood restaurants in Mazatlan where we can actually breathe.
