“Excellent Seafood - Excellent View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

After a long automobile drive from Tepic, Nayarit to Mazatlan my friends and I were looking for a good seafood place for dinner. La Costa Marinera was recommended to us and we decided to give try it out. We were pleasantly surprised. Not only did we enjoy the seafood; but a beautiful sunset. I would recommend it highly to anyone looking for a great experience.

“Another Great Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

We always have a lunch at least once (sometimes more) when we visit Mazatlan. Food and service is excellent and on the beach. Locals attend as well. Never had a marginal meal there and the prices are great. Highly recommend for an authentic well-prepared meal.

“Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

Where else can you get seafood on the beach at this price? It's amazing service, and like I said literally on the beach--be careful or you will track sand into the restaurant.

“Classic beachfront seafood joint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Taking the recommendation of a taxi driver led to a very nice lunch by the ocean. Just across from Isla de los Pajaros, the restaurant offers good seafood, a singing waiter, strolling mariachis, and a fun if noisy atmosphere. Definitely an enjoyable place for good fresh seafood.

“Hard to breathe / Bad atmosphere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

Each time we eat here, the atmosphere is bad ... just at this restaurant. First time, there was a 4-wheeler sitting running on the beach blowing exhaust directly into the restaurant. It was because a couple was having their special dinner on the beach (catered by La Costa Marinera) and the vehicle was packing up their extra stuff. We ended up taking most of our food to go because the exhaust made us nauseated. It was Shrimp for 2 -- great sauces, but also very oily. At least all that oil made it easy to fry up the next day for lunch in our little kitchenette. The following year when we came back, a table in the middle of the outside seating area was chainsmoking. There are no-smoking signs all over but the waiters wouldn't talk to the table about it because they were "friends of the owner" and were "about to leave" (right, that's why they kept on ordering more shots on ice). We won't be back. There are plenty of other wonderful seafood restaurants in Mazatlan where we can actually breathe.
