“Best Restaurant in Mazatlan!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

If you want real delicious, great, and safe food! This is the place to go!!! Seriously!
It is on one of the most scenic beach fronts! The staff are amazing!!!
The owner and his family are just some of the nicest people you will meet in Mexico!
Prices are very reasonable and great portions!
Our favorite meal was the Shrimp platter- You can choose 4 different types of shrimp. We loved the bacon wrapped swordfish shrimp and the coconut shrimp. Unbelievable presentation!
Happy hour means you get two delicious drinks instead of one.
We also had the swordfish plate and, the lobster and shrimp, Everything we ate was awesome!
Whatever you do! Get the Tequila cheese as an appetizer!!! So simple and yet so good!
They work with a local village that makes a very yummy tequila. My personal favorite was the coffee flavored tequila. We did a tour and went zip lining in the village too/ also great food!
make sure to talk to Skip-o at the restaurant. He hooked us up with a great price and made sure we had a blast!
Really you will be glad you made the trip there! It was the highlight of our time in Mazatlan!

“The Best in Mazatlan”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

We stayed in Mazatlan for 10 days and tried several of these places. This restaurant was our favorite by far. Great food, service, and entertainment. The view was wonderful... Just an all around favorite.

“Great spot!”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

A personal friend recommended this location; the trip advisor reviews are bang-on! It's a great restaurant!

Food:
The tequila shrimp was wonderful, and it's prepared tableside. The carne asada was a little tough.

Service:
They were perfectly attentive without being overbearing. Very friendly.

Location:
A bit out of the way, but worth the pulmonia ride. We noticed that there were Cerritos Sabalo busses nearby, and we'll check out the possibility of bussing in next time we're in Mazatlan.

The location was very nice with many seats by the ocean. The high ceiling opened up the views. We didn't much care for the 10 foot tall advertisement placard for Mr. Lioniso's zip line business, but that's a minor minor grievance, and didn't detract from our overall experience.

We'll definately return!

“Very good, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

We ended up going here for dinner, but I have heard their breakfast is just as good. The fish ceviche was fantastic, my wife had the molcajetes combo with shrimp,beef and chicken... She loved it. It was right about sunset, so the view was amazing. Surfers riding the waves, impeccable service cold Cerveza and wonderful sangria.

“Great location.”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

Great shrimp chimichangas while sitting under an umbrella on the beach. Watch your change though when paying the bill. I gave the waiter change with a large bill wanting to get just paper pesos back and he assumed the change was his tip... he short changed himself by doing that.
