We come to Mazatlan every December and always eat at Carlos and Lucia's usually more than once. The have excellent food, friendly, atttentive service, a festive atmosphere and reasonable prices. Our favorite menu items are the Cuban selections because we can't get good Cuban food at home but all of their food is good. Last night I had picadillo and my husband had ropa vieja. We finished our meal with an excellent cup of Cuban coffee. The have the best mojitos in town. They are located across the street from the Holiday Inn in the Golden Zone. We will continue to be regular customers.

The restaurant is run by a family - wonderful people! Terrific food! Not a place to visit if you are in a hurry....food is extremely fresh; tasty; properly served and most enjoyable.

The only thing really good about the10 peso tacos are the price. Tortillas tasted stale and did not hold up to filling.
Tacos came with shredded lettuce on top-i've travelled all around Mexico and i've never gotten lettuce on top-sure they do that in America, but if i wanted american tex mex, i'dhave stayed in the U.S and hit up an 'on the border'
Took almost 15 minutes for 3 tacos to be served-that should have been enough to prompt me to get up and leave
Sorry, did not love this place- much better taco stands a stones throw away from here

I have been going to Carlos and Lucia's for the past five years and have always enjoyed the food and the best Mojito's in the world. Carlos and Marty are always very gracious and treat you like one of the family. It is one of my favorite restaurants in Mazatlan. This time I tried the Diabla Shrimp and absolutly loved it. Great place for food with reasonable prices.
