Most of our diner was comprised of fresh, raw seafood ceviche style. We had callo de hacha, aguachirle and oysters... so fresh it practically moved on the plate! Fantastic flavor. We also had the "pescado zarandeado" which was cooked to perfection! It is rustic and on the beach, so don't expect a high end place

I am a resident of mazatlan and I was looking for new seafood restaurants to try but I will never return to this one, once we were sitted, we were greeted by a timeshare salesman before the waiter even asked for drinks, next once we finally got to place our order which took forever getting the food in an almost empty restaurant, we are early eaters, we started to notice how filthy the place was, I was already wanting to leave. Once the food arrived, it was way overcooked and I was unable to eat it, so let's just say bad food, bad service, and dirty. If you like going for a view & good prices, go ahead but I would not recommend it

We had an extensive assortment of seafood for two for $30. Added an additional Carribean lobster for $15. Great drinks as well. Food was well prepared, and internet available while waiting. Although the great views of the ocean and the music of a Mexican brass band will likely be a delightful distraction. Open air, informal, crowded, with the noise of families enjoying themselves aid to the casual environment. Excellent English spoken which is not always the case in this town.

I wife and I have a nice lobster dinner with drinks overlooking the crashing waves it was delightful. With the American dollar versus the peso our dinners were very very affordable. I probably would have given them five stars if the maître d' had not tried to sell me a timeshare on the way out the door when we were done. Heck even the taxi drivers were trying to sell us one on the way out there.
