“Nice afternoon....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Plaza Machado is lovely and a nice place to relax.....several restaurants around the Plaza. One place not to miss is the Nidart Gallery just a block or so away.....a mother and her daughters do incredible reasonably priced art. I buy something new and different everytime we're there.

“A must on your trip to Mazatlan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

A great place to watch the weekend entertainment and People watch. Lots of vendors and shopping on the weekends. Take a cab - Parking is very limited.

Great restaurants on the Plaza:

- Il Mosta - Try the Black Burro, it's one of the best and biggest filets in Mazatlan.
- Bohemia - Best Ribeye in Mazatlan - A little pricey but worth it.
- Pedro & Lola - Great entertainment on the weekends and the food is "OK".
- Argentina Beef - Very good steaks - Check with the waiter.
- Topolo's is one block to the east - Best restaurant in Mazatlan - Try the pork shank.
- Italian Restaurant on the west side of the plaza - Sorry, I forgot the name but there are always a lot of people there.

There are other restaurants on the Plaza but I'm saving them for my next trip

“Most scenic place in Mazatlan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is the most charming place in Old Mazatlan - right where the Angela Peralta Theater is. It is charming when empty (e.g. for breakfast), and when packed with locals and tourist alike at night time (I was there both Friday and Saturday nights and there were bands in the Kiosk, crafts, lots of restaurants and alive with people).

“A good night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

A great place to eat and relax at night. Recommed a weekend night as they have local artists selling jewlery and other items at very reasonable prices.
