“A unique way to see the city.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

While the lighthouse is said to have the best view of the city, the second best has to be from El Mirador (or The Lookout). The food is average for Mazatlan, but who will remember what they ate after taking in the splendor from the highest restaurant in all of Mazatlan. This place is perched high on the most southern point of the city and has a commanding view of the port, Stone Island and the lighthouse. If someone comes to visit us, we take them there at least for a drink. The view is simply too good to pass up.

“Best view in Mazatlan, but hard to find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

It was very difficult to find the restaurant, but worth it for the view. I had the mixed brochette which was excellent. My husband's fish was cooked beautifully but I didn't care for the sauce. It's not elegant at all, but worth doing for lunch.

“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

This is great place to go to get a great view of the ocean and the city. We go almost every year when we are in Mazatlan. It is so peaceful and relaxing, but it is not over 600 miles from the city center.
