I trek down to the Plaza almost every night for dinner or to listen to music whilst in Maz. The ambiance is amazing, there is a wide range of restaurants to chose from. My favorite is Pedro y Lola, you must try the banana creme pie - to die for! Wonderful area for watching locals on the weekends.

We were fortunate enough to visit on the last of the Art Walks, held on the first Friday from November-May. So happy that we took the opportunity to visit Plaza Machado. There are many nice restaurants with outdoor seating and music. Such a great atmosphere. Also some great shops.

What a wonderful city and historical area of Mazatlan Mexico! You are talking about romantic nights with best restaurants in town and wonderful people. Architecture is a breath taker.

I spent a lot of time at Plaza Machado, at various times of the day, evening and night, sometimes at peak times - carnival, and other times just a weekday and found that there was always something to see. I have tried numerous restaurants around the plaza and all have been good.

Plaza Machado comes alive on Friday and Saturday evenings around 5:00, when the vendors line the plaza and the restaurants put tables outside. Take a walk around the area to see the dance studios, the theatres, and art galleries. Then have something to eat at one of the many restaurants. From Sundays-Thursdays, the restaurants open about 6:00 and there are... More

This place is nothing but fun. Whether you are stopping to have a cold beverage in the shade or dancing the night away to live music, this the place to be. You won't find any Florida or California bands here. If that's what you are looking for, try Cancun, or Cabo. Nothing wrong with that. But if you want to... More

Romantic and casual place for dinner with somebody or family, the restaurants here are really bohemian and the music makes the evening a perfect place, its better to go after the sunset.
