“Colonial Charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We ate here after noticing it when we were on our way to the Zocolo (town square) and our hotel (hotel Rio Vista, which is excellent, read our review of it). It is about 3 blocks from the hotel and 2 blocks from the Zocolo.

It has a lovely patio area for outdoor dining and also has air conditioned inside dining. The sea food was excellent and the bill for a pitcher of lemonade, coffee and two meals was 340 pesos or about $27. Fun pictures to look at on the walls. Clean restrooms. A little more upscale than you would expect. This town of El Fuerte is worth seeing. Pass on Los Mochis and go to Fuerte if going to the Copper Canyon train. Easy bus ride from Los Mochis and train boards at 8:30am instead of 6am.

“The best fish I've had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

I asked the local people for a good place to get fish they recommended this restaurant. The food was outstanding and the server was really helpful at helping us choose a good dish. The prices were reasonable too. Enjoy!

“hummingbirds and shrimp!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

A short walk from the central square and you are here. We all had shrimp stuffed avocados and they were delicious and fresh. While waiting for our order we enjoyed dozens of hummingbirds feeding at two hummingbird feeders hanging in the patio. Atmosphere here was average. Good for lunch but not sure dinner would be anything special.
