“Surfers paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We love it here. It is no frills, but is very good. And the scenery is amazing. It is very clean outside dining. Highly recommend checking this place out.

“Good food and great view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Great atmosphere and food. Views of the surfers beach and sunset if you time it right. The owner also has tours available if you want to arrange one. One of our favorites in Mazatlan.

“Not the best choice on a busy Saturday night.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Visited on a Saturday night after recommendations of several friends back home. Finally got a table, still dirty with last diner's dished. Took a long time to get the table cleaned, we changed the table clothe ourselves. 7 people at our table, 1 tiny basket of tortilla chips and salsa. Drinks were wrong, took forever to get, never got more chips but no salsa, and dinner was forever, and some was cold.

“Great place to sit and enjoy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

The whole Cerritos Beach area is a great place. The food is way better than the resort food. Playa Brujas is mid range on the expense catagory but the food is great. I have been going every year for 6 years now to enjoy the music, surfing, food, and shopping.

“Best food we had on our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We enjoyed Bruja restaurant; we went at night so our visit did not include the beach. We came on the early side, maybe 6:30, and were seated immediately. It took a long time to get our drinks, but then we were surprised to have two drinks delivered when we only ordered one. It turned out to still be happy hour! There were live musicians, but we sat on the perimeter, so it was not too loud to continue our conversation. They also came to our table but were not pushy. Our food choices, chicken and shrimp, were excellent; the best we had on our trip.
