We stopped into Lauren's Restaurant at Jonathan's Boutique Hotel in Plazuela Machado for breakfast prior to touring the Performing Arts Center & Opera House across the way, on Tuesday, January 22, 2013. Great decision on our part.

Lauren's is a beautiful restaurant that attains a contemporary yet comfortable atmosphere. The wait staff is very professional and not intrusive. The food is absolutely excellent.

My wife went for the Lengua (beef Tongue) In Red Sauce, with a side of country style potatoes and a sunny-side egg. It was a substantial portion. Our expectations were exceeded. It was tender, flavorful yet not overwhelmed by the sauce.

I chose the Lauren's Combo which included strips of beef sauteed in a red sauce with onions, peppers and spices, green chiliquiles, scrambled eggs with diced ham and as spectacular a serving of black beans that I have ever experienced. Yes, they were that good. The beef was very good but stood little chance juxtaposed with the Lengua. Everything was delightful including our coffees.

What added that special touch is the Soprano practicing maybe 75 feet away from our table. It was a breakfast that we will never forget.

There is one problem that is very fixable which would make it much more likely that we will return. The female restroom is a disaster. We have been to Jonathan's three times on this trip, to tour the hotel, have a drink in the Sky Bar and for breakfast at Lauren's. All are first rate facilities that would hold up in any city that we have visited, but the woman's restroom in the lobby, just outside the restaurant is a disgrace at this time. It has been this way for over a week.

Please management, do yourself a favor and fix the damned plumbing. I love your restaurant, your bar and your hotel but my wife has her priorities.

After a small communication issue, we enjoyed a delicious dinner at Lauren's. The waiter's did not speak much
English but we were able to order what we wanted and were pleasantly surprised. The Mahi-Mahi with shrimp was tremendous. Try the Chocolate crepes!

This restaurant is located in the Jonathan Hotel. We had a fantastic breakfast here consisting of poached eggs, bacon, sausage and toast. The prices are reasonable, the coffee excellent and the staff incredibly friendly. The bartender spoke very good English and helped explain "poached eggs" to our waiter. Next trip to Mazatlan, we intend to stay at this hotel - the rooms look beautiful.

Although reviews for this restaurant for dinner have been very mixed, I had a surprisingly good breakfast there with a friend. The setting, of course, is very elegant and the service was prompt, friendly and helpful. There is an extensive menu with some unusual items and some expected offerings with a twist. As I usually choose salty over sweet, I decided to be different and had their cinnamon apple waffle. The waffle was cooked perfectly - crisp outside and fluffy inside and was served with a drizzle of local honey. A friend had eggs cooked as ordered with several sauces over tortillas. They offer espresso drinks and their house coffee is acceptable. The cost was no more than good local specialty breakfast places,
Several tables were occupied but the atmosphere was calm and relaxed. Well worth another visit
