We ate here twice this time in Maz. Both times the food was excellent , as was the service. The waiters are very knowledgeable and entertaining. The Tortilla soup is the best I have ever tasted.
As an appetizer, fresh salsa (3 types), tortilla chips and a deep fried stuffed pepper are served.

I have been coming here for the past twelve years. The service is impeccable, the staff are friendly, genuine and sincere. They truly want to see their guests having a good time and enjoying their food. The food is very good. As some of the reviews point out, it isn't the most inexpensive place to eat, but you do get a good dish with a lot of extras. If you aren't very hungry or on a bit of a tight budget, try the tacos on the appetizer menu. They are excellent, very large, and only 37 pesos. Well worth it. Factor in the salsa and chips, stuffed jalepenos, and desert drinks and it is a very good deal. Friday and Saturday nights are great dinner nights; local Mariachis come through and will play to the group and for a small donation will play a song of your choice focused at your table. Some of these groups are pretty impressive. Pancho is a great guy, too, and will take the time to get to know you if you show an interest in doing so.

Right on the beach! Amazing and cheap margaritas (made with lime juice, nice and tart!), spectacular service. The carne asada was great, my chicken was really undercooked though I think this is a local preference, not a mistake. One of the waiters asked if it wasn't cooked enough for me because he admirably noticed it wasn't getting eaten. It came back perfect and tasty. The service is really amazing, everyone is so attentive and professional. In the end, this isn't really the place for us as we're neither big drinkers (I could only drink half the margarita!) nor able to eat seafood, but that is our issue not theirs. I would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Really good shrimp! Very small dining area - get there early if you want a ocean side table. Good people!

Great location food was average you can sit right on the beach if you want. I was there for lunch the dinner crowd might be a little more lively.
