Located in Plazuela Machado with a ton of outdoor seating. We were there on Mother's Day and walked the plaza area a couple of circuits trying to determine whee to eat... So many choices all of which looked good... Ultimately, it was the waiter who was showing the mine and generally chatting people up as they were passing by that convinced us this was a good choice.

The line that hooked us was..."the food is great but our service is slow". It was obvious he was joking, and they were packed... We had no where to be so we figured sitting outside people watching would pass the time. Turns out he was our waiter and service was anything but slow. The food was awesome, the margaritas nice and cold... And very strong!! Good restaurant and great patio seating... Funny waiters!

Pedro & Lola's restaurant is situated right on the Plazuela Machado. Ideally located for watching al the people thronging round the market stalls. Be warned though the chairs are very uncomfortable. My friend had to sit on her pashmina to stop the seat chaffing her leg.
Waiting staff are extremely friendly and speak a number of languages.
The menu has a fair choice of food.
We ordered fillet mignon and black peppered steak - both were very nice - served with half a baked potato and carrots and green beans.
Would we eat there again? Most probably not.

We had a lovely dinner last week at Pedro & Lola's. I enjoy a Martini before dinner and it was served to perfection. I was impressed that our server when asked for his recommendation did not suggest a more expensive item on the menu, but rather a dish that did turn out to be very satisfying (tuna with shrimp). Additionally, although our server initially forgot to bring us our appetizer of sautéed mushrooms (to err is human), he did remember the order later and kindly, and appropriately compted us the item (to forgive devine). I will remember Pedro & Lola's with affection, have no reservation recommending this destination to friends and family, and look forward to my next delicious meal on the Plaza Machado under the stars.

The location is very nice, sitting on the Machado, under the stars and palm trees, selection on the menu was very wide, what four of us had was delicious, the service was good, HOWEVER, although they say they take credit cards, when it comes time to pay, their machine doesn't work. Had this happen other places too. Take cash!

We ate there on a recent Friday evening prior to going to an event at the Theatre close by.

We sat outside and enjoyed watching the people strolling around the Plaza Machado. We were not given the option of being inside maybe because it appeared to be set up for a large party. There was also no music that evening which was disappointing. Perhaps that was later - we were there only until 8pm.

The food was OK but not special at all and I wonder if this restaurant is resting on past laurels . It was much busier than other restaurants also circling the Plaza but, next time, we'll try one of those.
