We came before they opened for lunch. Invited us in anyways! Ordered beer and chips and salsa till they were open for lunch. Food and service was very good. One piece of advice: Pay with Pesos at all Restaurants. Less confusing!

We were going to another restaurant, now I can't remember the name... BUT Our driver said we should try Mason Bay. It's right on the beach, I mean RIGHT ON IT. Down a side street and we found it. Lot's of ex-pats, but the place is pretty nice. Not luxury, but open air and great views. My friend had soup... More

Visited this place in 2013 and absolutely loved it. Since then new owners took over...so we were concerned. Went again first week of July 2016 and absolutely loved it again...the setting is just great...nice breeze, great view, fantastic service, and very reasonable prices.

While visiting this city we came across this restaurant by the sea and the food was excellent as was the service. Pricing was very reasonable. Would suggest this place when in town

Restaurant was a little dark as we ate late, but I think they stayed open late for us so we couldn't complain. Red Snapper was good, enchiladas were good, salsa was HOT!

Atmosphere was spectacular with great views. Food was so so good. Service was good. Nice, clean restrooms. We arrived as they were opening for lunch and had the whole restaurant to ourselves. It was a very hot day, and we were treated to an ice cold hand towel as we sat down. So refreshing! I had the chicken enchiladas and... More

We had been here once before so went back this trip. We arrived just before sunset and given a table so we could watch the sun go down. Handed cold towels to clean our hands. Nice touch. Portions are large so I recommend sharing. If it isn't on the menu just ask, we started with chorizo con queso. It was... More

We have been to Mason bay before and really enjoyed! It has gotten better! When we arrived it was extremely warm, so they gave us a cold towel to cool off - great touch. We both had our cell phones and we were talking about wi-fi when our waiter came by, he gave us the code to their wi-fi -... More

I had the shrimp ceviche and shrimp stuffed chili rellino. Both were excellent. The service was attentive. There is a little market at the entrance that is worth the time to wander through before or after your meal.
