About the restaurant
Casual Oyster Bar and Grill serves up some of the country´s freshest seafood. A culinary experience.

Great ambience.

Chef Tomas Bermudez keeps a keen eye on all that enters the kitchen, sourcing the highest quality seafood mostly from the Pacific Coast of Mexico and supporting local small scale producers for vegetables and meat.

Great wine list with many natural options in it.
The seasonal cocktail list is worth a try.

San Pellegrino´s Latin America´s 50 Best Restaurants Award for its quality and ambience.

When reserving it is not possible to guarantee a specific table or location in the restaurant, although we always try to do our best. We have 10 minutes tolerance for reservation times, after that it is a no show. We only assign tables to complete parties, in case not everybody is present we assign a smaller table. There is a penalty of $250 pesos for no shows or incomplete groups.

About the restaurant
Our friends and customers had identified us along these 42 years of service as the “Best Seafood Cuisine from the Pacific Coast”. This has made us achieve an important place in our national gastronomy.
Nowadays we have come to open 15 restaurants in national territory in 11 different cities: Culiacán, Mazatlán, Tijuana, Mexicali, Cd. Juárez, Guadalajara, México City, Monterrey, Toluca, León and Aguascalientes.
In Los Arcos Restaurant we strive to deliver a rich variety of dishes,
created with only the freshest and highest quality fish and seafood
from the Pacific Coast, always delighting the most demanding palates.

About the restaurant
Synonymous with creativity, pride and tendency, PORFIRIO'S is also passion and excellence. In an environment that renews the concept of tradition, classic ingredients with contemporary accents are skillfully combined, which translates into bold flavors taken from every corner of colorful Mexico, brought to the table with a creative touch that redefines the beauty and classic flavor of each dish, through carefully selected ingredients and an environment where music, decoration and seasoning intertwine and translate into a sensory experience that invites you to explore Mexico in one bite. PORFIRIO'S is Mexico re-imagined.

If I could give this restaurant a 100/10 I would. I’ve never had service like the one here. Guillermo was attentive and the other waiter with him as well. The captain of the restaurant was very welcoming as well.
