We went with several friends and after a long wait to be given the menu we had to wait more than an hour to get our food! This was not the worst part, the waiters were very rude when we claimed that one plate was canceled; the cancellation was a misunderstanding but they shouldn't have to treat us rudely. The... More

We arrived hot from the beach walk there, but soon cooled down with a breeze that was blowing. We started ordering some tappas food which was very good except a couple... More

We were staying at the Pueblo Bonito Resort and while walking on the beach came across this café - we stopped for drinks and a snack which was great. It was a neat café with a sand floor.

This cafe is a about a half mile from Emerald Bay. We have eaten breakfast and lunch here. Very casual. They have entertainment starting Wednesday. They have County, rock-and-roll and Reggae bands on the beach. FOOD GOOD and friendly and Great service. LeAnn is Canadian and runs an awesome restaurant! Closed Monday and Tuesday.

We were staying at a resort near this restaurant. You are right on the beach, great food, and mimosas. They are open for lunch and close at 4, but have music in the afternoon. Hope they sttart opening for dinner.

This hidden gem is right on the beach with a great view of the ocean. Outdoor seating. Extensive menus. Try the Burger and Layers of Flavor. Both are excellent

We went to Surf's Up for an afternoon of food and classic music. The location is stunning - right on the beach. The food is amazing - very fresh and delicious. Service was incredible - staff very friendly and accommodating. Live music was a bonus - amazing band. You need to reserve ahead of time though - it books up... More

The restaurant overbooks for the size of their kitchen. Eight of us waited 3 1/2 hours for our meals and another hour to get the bill. The bills were all messed up. I had an appointment and they kept telling me just a minute. I finally left $$ on the table and went. When asked why they didn't increase their... More

Surfs Up M, Owner at Surf's Up Cafe, responded to this review

Reviews are always helpful for people but it is the honest ones that truly do make the difference. I don't like to argue with customers as most often as an owner you need to look at it from their perspective. But when people embellish on a situation like waiting 4 1/2 hours I do believe that to be unjust and... More

We love to walk up the beach from Punta Pacifico resort, and once again Surf's Up was a destination for lunch on our first day in Mazatlan. The menu is diverse. Service is excellent. The atmosphere is refreshing. We loved it so much that we decided to visit again to hear the Reggae music on a Saturday. This place is... More
