We shared the ceviche (best one we had in Mazatlan). I had the salmon and my husband had the panko shrimp. Great portions.

This was our favorite restaurant in Mazatlan. The food was excellent and the margaritas superb. Sitting on the terrace gives a pleasant overview of the Machado Square where in the evening there was always something going on.

Six of us had fantastic meals on March 9th. I had the salmon fillet and it arrived piping hot and cooked to perfection. If I’m ever back in Mazatlan, I would like to go there and try another dish.
