No trip to Mazatlan would be complete without a trip to Carlo's and Lucia's. Carlos is an incredible host. The large mojoito is worth the trip itself. Each meal is fantastic!

Carlos himself was our waiter and bartender. All six of us truly enjoyed our meals. The ambience is comfortable with lots of character. We would highly recommend this place.

My wife and I just got back from Carlos and Lucia's Carlos took care of us personally and we followed his recommendations for the Shrimp Diablo and the Cuban garlic shrimp. The Cuban black bean cream soup was very good. The Establishment is a little hard to find but it's across the street from the (Old) Holiday Inn and the... More

Carlos is very interesting, he takes your order and loves conversation. He is Mexican and his wife is Cuban, so that is where the recipes come from. Best mojitos. Flavorful food. My husband had sea bass which was so tasty, as was my chicken dish. Highly recommended and would definitely go back. Very small, with interesting decor.

We enjoyed our meal here. The owner multi tasked as the greeter, waiter and mojito maker. The food was good. The place is small and nothing special as far as decorations go. I probably wouldn't go back, it was fine, but nothing special.

This was our first visit to Carlos and Lucia's this year and we enjoyed it very much as usual. I had the swordfish place fixed Carlos style served over rice and covered with a melted cheese. It was very, very tasty. My wife had tacos Lucia and she loved them. So fortunately all is well here so we can come... More

I had a mildly spicy chipotle shrimp dish that was served with rice. I was amazed at the amount of shrimp. It was wonderful!

If not for Trip Advisor, we would have walked right by. Had seen the reviews and sought out this little gem. Carlos is a great host, we talked about Cuba, politics, and life in general. He suggested some dishes we might like, and we loved everything - black bean soup and garlic soup to start, smoked pork chops Cuban style,... More

We have been to Mazatlan for several years and never have gone to Carlos & Lucia's until today-loved it. The Cuban sandwich is the best and the art on the walls is fascinating. Make sure to introduce yourself to Carlos-great conversation. Too, it's one of the few restaurants we've been to in Maz that has decent red Argentinian wine! It's... More
