We took a cab to El Quelite from Mazatlan, & so very ad we did! The restaurant was beautiful & the food was excellent. The chickens and roosters were hanging out by the tables, and they had a baby goat named Ruby. The owners let us feed her a bottle, it was so much fun! Be sure to walk around... More

The owner Marcos was a great guy who gave us a personal tour after our excellent meal. We had a lovely time here. So much local history and authentic food. The horchata was delicious. Take the time to drive to this picturesque village.

We were brought here by friends from Mazatlan and this restaurant is more than worth the trip. When we entered thru the lobby which is a display of paintings, photos and artifacts you can tell how much they care about traditions. There is dining area after dining area each more festive and interesting than the last. Even with all this... More

About 36 Km NE of Mazatlan, is a village, El Quelite, just recently becoming known, but still in Actual Mexico, and relatively unchanged, but already achieving a little prosperity. Cruise boats and resorts send busses here but none wee there on our visit day. The best restaurant in this village, El Meson De Los Laureanos, does have roosters wandering around... More

This place is called "the best restaurant in Mexico". While I haven't been to every restaurant in Mexico, it certainly stands up to be a contender. Amazing food, town, and staff!

Wholeheartedly recommend this gorgeous, artistic and absolutely scrumptious restaurant half an hour away from Mazatlán. Definitely, worth the drive or taxi ride to this beautiful, sleepy pueblito tucked away in the Sinaloa Sierra Madre. I cannot wait to return to this restaurant with my family. We met the owner and he simply made our lunch experience that much better with... More

On our way to Mazatlan (from Culiacan) we stopped at this famous restaurant only to discover why it is internationally acclaimed. As soon as you arrive you feel the warmth of the employees, service is over the top, at first I thought the dishes were overpriced but then I discovered that everything you are given on the side (coffee, tortilla...
