“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.

“A must see when in Mazatlan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The Plaza Machado is one of the most scenic areas of the city. No visit to this lovely city would be complete without strolling around the Plaza. On weekend nights there is even live music and people dancing in the street. The restaurants around the Plaza all serve delicious meals. Don't forget to stop here for a fun, relaxing time.

“Magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Friday nights are so magical there with all the lights, restaurants, families, and many local vendors selling their wares. During the day there are several places to have lunch and I also enjoyed breakfast there a couple of mornings.
