Travel advisor asked me to write a review on my Mazatlan trip this year. I have reviewsed Panchos in the past and it HAS NOT CHANGED. Great service and food. On the beach. I continue to recommend this as one of the best.

It's in the Golden Zone, so the prices are geared for tourists (pricey). The food was good. I do not eat seafood, so maybe I did not select their specialties. The service was excellent. Upstairs is air conditioned and the downstairs open to outdoors.

We always love eating at Pacho's and eat there every time we come. And, I refer many people there. Pancho is very kind but we did not see him this time. We also missed, Daniel, one of the servers.

up on a time it was a reasonable place in terms of food and price, but is it generally happens when they start making money, quality went down and the price went up, not a good place

We never did try to make reservations. If you go around 4:00 or 5:00 for sunset, you'll get in. Later there is a line.

If possible don't use CC in Mexico. Try to use cash. If I were trusting anyone, I'd trust Panchos but it's not worth the experiment.
