“An Eve on the Plaza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Plaza Machado if a great place to spend a Saturday evening. The plaza is filled with vendors and there is live entertainment. Sometimes you can watch a perfornmance on large screen in the plaza. One year they showed a performance of an orchestra. This year they showed the movie Les Miserables. My favorite restaurant in the Plaza is Il Mosto. I love the warm bread and whipped garlic butter and the mushroom appetizer.
The Black Burro steak is fabulous. (I'm not normally big on steak in Mexico)

“Old Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

This must have been one of my favorite attractions in Mazatlan. We visited Plaza Machado during the day time as part of a city tour. The tour guide told us that at night they close the streets and have music, dancing and street vendors. We decided to return and night and we loved it. The atmosphere was perfect with live music and people dancing in the street. I wanted to eat at Pedro and Lola but my group decided to eat at Beach Burger. This was the only bad thing. The food was terrible. The shrimp tasted like it must have been dipped in ketchup. Other than that I loved Plaza Machado.
