“Cheap sunset views. Great service. Great food.”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Our meal was enjoyed on a Monday night, and we had the place to ourselves. No music, only an amazing sunset against a cloud-streaked sky over the Pacific waters, just feet away. Our server was real friendly and patient when we had to reconsider our choice due what was available that night. The ceviche was spilt, and it was a nice way to start. The crab was very sweet. Also ordered was a tuna burger, which was amazing. I was happy to see that the bun was brushed with butter and grilled on the underside. That does just wonders for any burger. The other dish was a fish fillet served with a cilantro sauce. Without the sauce the fish would have been tasty enough, for it had a slightly smoked flavor. I stress slightly. Neither sauce flavor nor smoke flavor bullied the other. It was just perfect. We were so pleased by the value. Who can complain with a waterfront seafood restaurant with plates for 90 pesos, or $7 ? We passed this place a few times in the space of 4 days and it always looked to be more expensive, for it shares some prime space with a few mid range hotels and some pricier food establishments. We found that everything came together for a wonderful meal at a very fair price. The jaw-dropping sunset and the lack of annoying entertainment made it all even better.

“One of my favorite restaurants in old town Mazatlan”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

While vacationing in Mazatlan, be sure to stop by Puerto Viejo restaurant, where locals as well as tourists, stop in for cold beers and fresh sea food. My favorite is the marlin tacos, although everything on the menu is good. It's located in old town Mazatlan, across from the malecon and the beach, yet steps away from Plazuela Machado and downtown. The servers are always friendly and knowledgeable. On Friday and Saturday nights, they have a local band who plays all night and is very talented. Every time I go to Mazatlan, I stop in at Puerto Viejo. I highly recommend checking it out. You'll enjoy it as much as I do.

“Nice view, breeze, and good food for a good price”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant after walking through old town toward the beach. We saw the signs for ceviche and the staff offered us to come in. We did. And we are glad we did. It's very casual, with a beautiful view of the ocean and old town Mazatlan. Food was authentic and homemade. Great seafood dishes and good, cold beer. We had seafood soup, fish, and ceviche. All was tasty. Recommended highly.
