Pancho is almost always there, its been fun watching his restaurant grow over the last 30 years. Always the same employees, so not much turnover there. I highly recommend it, and its on the beach.

Love this place! Excellent menu from extensive seafood to traditional Mexican Favorites. They serve you after dinner drink and predinner agave drink. Musicians are often there in the evening for a romantic serenade.

We've been there twice and would visit again. The chicken burgers are cheap but they are huge and delicious. You get free stuffed jalapeno peppers and tortilla chips to snack on. The Spanish coffee is a must have! best presentation ever!

This place has good food and is very convenient if you are in Zona Dorada. Everything was delicious but there is so much going on that it can be difficult to get your server's attention. I realized this quickly and ordered a beer whenever I...More

Good food, excellent staff and prices are reasonable. Beautiful view of the ocean. Cheeseburgers are very good as well as the Mexican Plate.

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.

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.
