All positive except that the steak was overcooked despite my plea for rare. The vegies were overcooked, but that is common in Mexico.

A friend who lives in Mazatlan look us to this restaurant. It is located by the Plaza, we started with some delicious margaritas and ended up having dinner. I had excellent grilled Mahi Mahi with garlic and it was done perfectly (only restaurant that did it well the entire vacation). Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals which ranged from... More

I had the flank steak which was very good. It was served with tasty mashed potatoes, vegetables and nice salad. Service was excellent and the waiters were very eager to please. Sitting outside watching people and listening to the music on a Saturday night was most enjoyable. Very reasonably priced and a fun evening.

We had a very nice lunch here in April. Food was tasty and the margarita's were great. There are tables outside facing the Mercado, so you can see the rest of the world go by.

We wanted steaks so came here. I had the rib eye rare which was excellent. My wife had the filet steak on the bone, ordered rare but it came well done. We sent it back and it came back properly cooked.

Went to El Bife for the first time in 2015. Had my best steak ever, and I grew up eating Nebraska beef. Service was excellent with friendly waiters. Their Flank Steak is my new all-time favorite steak. We will visit again this year.

We stopped early afternoon for a mid day snack. Very good Guac, nachos and cold beer. Very nice location in the plaza. Fun place to people watch. Can get a bit busy when the cruice folks are in town.

I will stick to the facts. We were on a one-week cruise, and this was literally the only establishment I went to outside of the ship. I ordered one bottle of water, which the waiter brought to me. He opened it for me rather than allowing me to open it, which I didn't think was very notable, until after the... More
