This is a fine restaurant for dinner. Our group eat there last night and enjoyed a fine meal. We all had something different from the menu, and no one was disappointed. The tomato soup was very good, and the French Plate of sausage and pate was excellent. The rib steak was very tender. The lamb chops were well prepared. The seared tuna was well prepared and excellent. One of are party was gluten sensitive, and had mushroom risotto which was rich and creamy. The portion size did not leave room for desert, but there was a good size selection. Everyone agreed that a return visit was in order, and we hope to do just that before we leave. The only problem we experienced was that our after dinner coffee never arrived, and since we had a cab waiting were forced to leave. Otherwise service was very good.

The food was good but the Lamb was not as tasty as last visit two years ago. The service was very slow which detracted from the meal. All in all, a little too expensive for what we experienced.

If you only go to one restaurant in Mazatlan, make it Hector's. We were in Mazatlan for 2 weeks and had a lot of great food, but Hector's was by far the best meal we had. We went with friends and everyone said their meal was delicious, and the chocolate lava cake was amazing! Make sure you don't miss this place!

Ranks with the best in any city in the world. London-trained chef Hector came back to his hometown, with experience in Italian and French cooking schools and restaurants. Blended with Mexican in his own way, this is exciting but not showy cuisine, reasonably priced for such cosmopolitan fare. Service was very good for us, too, including a leisurely chat with Hector during his "down time" between the US/Canadian diners and the later Mexican clients. Hector's attracts both tourists and locals -- the real thing.

Ate breakfast here 4 times during my stay and will return again before I leave Mazatlan. My favorites include the berry smoothie, strawberry French toast and the Italian skillet breakfast. The smoothie is made with fresh berry's with frozen blueberries on top, making it a meal itself. The Italian sausage adds a nice spicy flavor to eggs and tomato sauce. The French toast was perfectly prepared and would be good even without the fresh berries. My friend had scrambled eggs with salmon and loved them. The sidewalk tables offer a quaint setting in old Mazatlan.
