Three of us went there early afternoon, almost empty but it kept filling in, mostly locals. There's no sea view, but it's an attractive open air place,on a main avenue in a nice neighborhood a couple miles inland. The cheerful and friendly staff definitely know what they're doing, and the food was divine. The prices are great for what you... More

It is a famous Mexican stile seafood restaurant in Mazatlan. The ambient was the best! Live music, awesome drinks, and of course the food was very good! Must try the "Agua Chiles" any of them, won't disappoint you.

I went to barracruda's in a group of 10 people and we were absolutely impressed. The food was delicious (ceviche trilogia de camaron, el vampiro de carnitas de pulpo and basically everything on the menu is a must try). The waiters were super fun and professional. There's a playground for the little kids. It seems to be a hit with... More

After a long day of travel, our group of 8 asked our taxi driver to take us to his favorite taco place. What a treat!!! This place is not on the beach and is a little off the tourist area, but the food was really just as good as the best other places. The empanadas were excellent, drinks perfect, and... More

This place is great. They have plenty of waiters so everything moves quickly. The music and ambiance is the best in Mazatlán. The food is very good and great variety of things. We had a great time!

A couple of years ago we went to Barracruda's and were disappointed in it. We have been there twice this year and were very happy with our visit. The meals were delicious, the service great and according to the people with us the BEST guyava margarita in all of Mazatlan. We are planning to return on a Tuesday evening as... More

Everything at this restaurant is so tasty! And what makes it so great is you can get different types of seafood that other restaurants do not offer!

The food here has to be tasted to be believed, it is so good. Service also fine. As a gringo I find the music too loud, but if you don't have that problem you'll want to eat here repeatedly. So sorry Barracrudas i have to give you a 4 because gringos do have this issue.

If you are into extra sour food, this is your place. Many Mexican youngsters look for this type of flavor, that's why this place is packed all the time and seems to be very popular, but the quality of their cook is not really great. I went with my sister who lives there, we both ordered a Ceviche Tostada, they... More
