Last year we were disappointed and this year we had one of the best meals we have had so far this trip. When we arrived I asked the guy if they still gave a free margarita with the meal and he said yes. He would not give my husband a free beer, but he did bring us margaritas and we... More

We ate at this restaurant twice during our recent stay in Mazatlan. It was very good both times and the service was excellent.

Shrimp is fresh and tasty, service is great. We went twice during our last trip! We split combo one the first time, and thought we'd have to grab a snack afterwards on our way back to the hotel, but it's much more food that you'd expect. The salsa was prepared for us tableside, and is so delicious. When they bring... More

We stopped by to test whether or not the Pacifica beer and shrimp, both local favorites were as good as people said. Both exceeded our expectations. Quick service, large and tasty shrimp and cold Pacifica beer. Glad we stopped by!

My favorite Mazatlan restaurant which I kept returning to for the friendly, wonderful staff and delicious local shrimp dishes, especially the coconut shrimp. At my second visit, I was welcomed back. On my third, I was greeted by name. In the slightly tarnished Golden Zone, the open air restaurant with its open kitchen is a treat. Spotlessly clean, cooled with... More

Went in for lunch and ordered the breaded shrimp for one. The menu is in English if you do not speak Spanish. Very prompt service and brilliant view of the street surrounding the ocean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Fresh guacamole and "Pica de Gallo" ( spicy salsa) is given to every table along with some nacho chips whilst... More

The two of us shared the Combination 1 Dinner that came with a varied assortment of cocktail shrimp, coconut shrimp, garlic and butter shrimp....I think you get the idea. At first we thought it was not going to be enough for two of us, but between the rice and vegetables that it came with, we found it to be just... More

We have heard all about shrimp being the best thing to eat in Mazatlan so we had to try it out. We had the 1/2 kilo of jumbo shrimp but 400 pesos. The shrimp comes with melted butter and a tartar sauce which was pretty tasty but it was not worth the price. There are way better value restaurants in... More

After a visit to the lovely Golden Zone of Mazatlan and its beach, eight of us came to this small pleasant shrimp/lobster restaurant to enjoy our lunch. Not expensive, roughly $15 per person, and we tasted lobster, shrimp, fish filet, beer, etc. And at the same time enjoyed the music played by the locals.

we have been going to Mazatlan for 19 years and I have tried this place no less than 10 times. The food is always over cooked, and over priced. You can do so much better, for so much less, just about anywhere in the Golden Zone. Save your money and go somewhere else.
