With all the new restaurants in Mazatlan it's easy to get caught up trying them all out; but don't forget the older ones. After being in business for 17+ years you can't deny the awesome afternoon mojitos, excellent Cuban food and of course friendly owner! Carlos & Lucias is always on the list.

We were in Mazatlan for a week and ate here 3 times because we enjoyed the food so much. Carlos is a great host and the ambience is a pleasant mix of Cuban and Mexican. We have a lot of fun every time we visit! Highly recommended!

No trip to Mazatlan would be complete without a trip to Carlo's and Lucia's. Carlos is an incredible host. The large mojoito is worth the trip itself. Each meal is fantastic!

Carlos himself was our waiter and bartender. All six of us truly enjoyed our meals. The ambience is comfortable with lots of character. We would highly recommend this place.

My wife and I just got back from Carlos and Lucia's Carlos took care of us personally and we followed his recommendations for the Shrimp Diablo and the Cuban garlic shrimp. The Cuban black bean cream soup was very good. The Establishment is a little hard to find but it's across the street from the (Old) Holiday Inn and the... More

Carlos is very interesting, he takes your order and loves conversation. He is Mexican and his wife is Cuban, so that is where the recipes come from. Best mojitos. Flavorful food. My husband had sea bass which was so tasty, as was my chicken dish. Highly recommended and would definitely go back. Very small, with interesting decor.

We enjoyed our meal here. The owner multi tasked as the greeter, waiter and mojito maker. The food was good. The place is small and nothing special as far as decorations go. I probably wouldn't go back, it was fine, but nothing special.

This was our first visit to Carlos and Lucia's this year and we enjoyed it very much as usual. I had the swordfish place fixed Carlos style served over rice and covered with a melted cheese.
