This place is NOT visible form the street but is at the end of many small shops, but it is on the beach. It is always busy and provide a good meal with a view.

Best coconut shrimp I've had in years. The margaritas were awesome too. A welcome rest after wandering the Malacon all morning.

It was very crowded so we only could get a table inside with no view. The service was average, they were not very friendly. The margaritas were awful. The food was very good. We will not return.

If you visit Mazatlan, visit this wonderful restaurant on the beach! Authentic mexican food, fresh seafood. Tequilla quesadillas are quite a show, made at your table, and delicious. Try 3 amigos! It's on the menu. You will live the atmosphere, the live bands, EVERYTHING

Since Mazatlan is famous for its shrimp, I highly recommend any of the shrimp dishes here. The waiters are fun. The sunset is beautiful, and the margaritas are stellar. A great place to have dinner and watch the sunset!!

Very big portions, and absolutely delicious food. Highly recommend! Love the beach front view. The staff are very attentive. The mango margaritas oh, definitely recommend. Even if you're just having a drink they provide you with salsa and chips. As well as stuffed jalapenos.

Absolutely to both! No problem with dollars. Been to Mazatlan several times a year and no issues at all. Pancho’s is great and so are the pulmonia rides. Enjoy!!

Yes. Would be a great place to spend a couple of hours. Catch a pulmonia (taxi that looks like an open air golf cart), which you will only find in Mazatlan. Make sure you negotiate the price before you get in. Should be... More

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.
