My commitment to the fidelity of my guests and friends can not disappoint. The concept of restoration have many personal factors. But the most important is to make unique to each guest, and many times the guest helps it. Trust in space, in food and personal treatment, but it takes time ... nothing comes alone.

My adult son and I dined two nights ago at El Ajibe. i had eaten there three or four times prior -- this was his first visit. First - you must make reservations. It is an intimate space and the owner (from Spain) is very conscientious about honoring availability for guests who have reserved. The sangria is far and away... More

His presence was very successful and your son showed his great Sense of interest for everything.Thank,s More

We were walking by this restaurant on our way to Plazuela Machado. It looked so interesting and since it was our last night, we came back to eat here. They don't take credit cards, so show up with cash. They do take dollars. We lucked out that they weren't full, so the owner took us to our table. Immediately impressed... More

This is by far the go to place for excellent food, atmosphere and service. They have opened for the season and have added to the menu. The kitchen is clean, clean, clean and the presentation and flavours are fantastic. Reservations are recommended if you want to be sure of a table.

Everything we ordered was amazing!!! Fresh and perfectly prepared. The atmosphere was unique - housed in an old water cistern and they took such good care of everyone in our group. the owner even brought us additional sangria on the house. Definitely a place to find if you are in old town.

This restaurant is incredible. We went with a group´of 8 people approx. 2 weeks ago. Everyone thought it was their best meal ever in Mazatlan and all but 3 of us live here full time. The art in the restaurant is spectacular and very fun. The cat is awesome. We will definitely go back.
