YUM YUM YUM more please ... Run, don't walk to Water's Edge. I had the absolute pleasure of dining at Water's Edge AND enjoying w|e Chef Alastair Porteous' incredible fare at a Farm-to-Table event during a recent trip to Mazatlan.

This was definitely a highlight of my trip to Mazatlan! Our group of 7 booked the Thursday Night Taco Tour with Alistair as our host. He took us to a nano brewery for a tour and samples, followed by a visit to 3 different taco vendors right in the heart of the historic area. We enjoyed some amazing food right... More

After a fine meal at this lovely spot with fabulous ambience last year, we returned this year for an intimate dinner for two. Though the presentation is still first-class, attention to detail and preparation have suffered mightily. My Caeser Salad was not grilled, as offered, and appeared to be just an entire head of Romaine daubed with a spoon full... More

I understand not having a reservation isn't ideal, but this place was empty when we arrived at 6 p.m. on a Tuesday in February. The man at the door asked us if we had a reservation and we said no, He told us he had to talk to the boss. The boss came back and asked us AGAIN, if we... More

Excellent food...be sure to make a reservation so you can eat outside overlooking the Plaza. Inside is not nearly as much fun.

I had the Vegan pot stickers and the ramen soup. While the menu changes, the owners are always conscious about putting non-meat items on the menu. Excellent service, ambiance, and entertainment. As residents, we are grateful for this fine dining experience in Centro.
