I hate giving a bad review and rarely ever do but when you get sick after eating at a restaurant then you simply have no choice. I had the fish tacos and pushed them aside after a few bites because they had a bad smell and did not taste very good. The nachos with chicken were not bad, huge portion, but not very flavourful. My dining companion was disappointed with her meal as well. The view is great. I may even return for a cerveza sometime and admire the view but I will not eat the food there ever again. There are far better places to eat in Mazatlan.

Great place to eat. Ambience - outdoor dining listening the the waves glide into the shore. Great place for sunset photos. Good food- try their specialty tequila shrimp. It's prepared at your table. Excellent service, good prices, good service. And by the way, you have to try the chicken, chipotle shrimp soup. Every family member said it is the best soup ever!

We went in late July, owner is great and runs great trips for zip lining and sight seeing! food is good, beers are a bit pricey, 25-30 pesos, vs 15 pesos in town, but you're on the beach so its beautiful

Our families really enjoyed our dinner here. The restaurant is on the beach, there was live music the night we went, and 2-for-1 drink specials. The staff was friendly and even gave us free desert for some reason. All the food was to our liking and the breaded shrimp were huge and incredibly good. This has a somewhat rustic atmosphere, but we liked that about it. The prices were about half what we've been paying in the Golden Zone for lesser dinners.

Great view, nice wait staff, but bland food. Whatever you do, skip anything with crab (jaibe) -- it had about as much flavor as celery. Also skip their empanadas (turnovers). Very boring. My fish was ok.
