We stayed in Mazatlan for three weeks in October. We were recommended La Cueva del Leon by a local. Fabulous food at VERY reasonable prices. We ate there nearly every night, and tried most of the dishes on the menu. Manolo and Alejandro always made us welcome and nothing was ever too much trouble. Alejandro had a great time laughing...

Must agree with other posters- everything we ordered was very good. Very polite waiters and an interesting menu. We have two small children so we ordered takeout on two different nights. To do so meant ordering at the bar from the manager. In stark contrast with the waiters, this man was unpleasant and brusque. The second night when I paid... More

We ate here the last nigt of our trip . It is a tiny place, but food and service was wonderful. Some of the best margaritas as well. Food was exceptional. Probably one of the top ten best places I have eaten at. If you are in Mazatlan do not miss this place!

We very much enjoy this restaurant. The prices can't be beat, but better then that the food is delicious. The owner is always there to keep an eye on things. The margaritas were some of the best in Mazatlan.

I can't describe the dining experience at La Cueva del Leon in words! The staff are wonderful and very friendly, the food is AMAZING, and the cost is very resonable. My wife and I dined here several times during our 2 week stay in Mazatlan. The meals with drinks never exceeded 200 pesos for the both of us!! I never... More
