I really like Poncho's on the beach. The best reviews are going to come from those who had a ringside seat over the water, which we did. Also, the review will be better than those coming from the people here in "season" (spring break). We...More

For me, the food here is just so so. I’ve never been blown away. The view is nice, right on the beach...and it is surrounded by shops. My family likes the bananas foster that they cook at the table and the meal is topped off...More

My husband and I really enjoy authentic, local food. This place was fine but we felt it was a bit overpriced for what we got. The real selling point is that it is on the beach. However, we came at the wrong time and were...More

Hard to beat this place for a wonderful dining experience. Staff are warm and very attentive. Fish of the day with Garlic is to die for. Everything was just perfect!

We had the 2+2+2 shrimp and it was delicious. Our waiter spoke perfect English. Chips and salsa where plentiful and good.

So many options to choose from. We had the shrimp burger (1st time for us) and it was a good size with sides. A couple of beers and I would say a perfect meal. They treated us to a small after dinner drink of Kailua,...More

This is a great place to eat! You always get a stuffed pepper to start and a Kailua & cream for dessert. Portion size is awesome, for the price. Staff is always friendly, food is delicious. A family favorite.

Worth the visit! You are right up on the beach and the food is great. Doesn’t feel super touristy. We considered going back but ran out of time. Great for small or large groups, and families too.

The restaurant is right on the beach but accessible from the street also. It's a nice atmosphere and decorations. And from the walk way between the restaurant and shops on the other side you can watch the cooks so you know the food is handled...More

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.
