“An experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

This Plaza has become the center of Mazatlan's artist scene. Stroll the renovated neighborhood; have a drink at Edgar's bar to experience old Mexico, dine at one of the many excellent restaurants and see a performance at the theater Angela Peralta.

“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
