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

A wonderful find. A true gem. If we were staying a week, this would be our “Headquarters”. In Old Town which is much more charming than the main beach area.

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.

We made our reservation here for a Sunday night with the intent on having Paella. We ended up having the pesto pasta with chicken and the ribeye with caramelized onions and potatoes. I did not want potato wedges so I asked them if I could...More
