What a welcoming surprise,the return of the grand dame of Mazatlan dining. Yes, Sarah Emerson along with her son, Gabriel Ocampo, has returned to the Mazatlan restaurant scene with an excellent presentation of the finest array of seafood to be found in all of Mazatlan. It is an interesting fact that many restaurants have a fine variety of seafood but this new restaurant can truly boast it has the finest of chefs and without the best preparation of seafood the variety available is meaningless! -Bill Demmer

Casa Canobbio, an authentic Italian restaurant located at an authentic 19th century Italian address in the Plaza Machado has quietly opened for your dining pleasure. In 1880 an Italian Pharmacy located in this Machado storefront offered a “fountain of youth” tonic by its Italian proprietor and Mexican wife. The new owner, Gaston Espino, is also hoping to instill a feeling of youth for his patrons while they consume creations from the kitchen and recreate the family tradition with ambiance and classic Italian food. Casa Canobbio contains classic designs in the dining, bar, and patio areas, and the modern kitchen is equipped with a brick oven for in-house baking.
This is a family owned and operated restaurant pledged to deliver super service, a variety of delicious salads, pasta, and pizza, with solid value and an enjoyable atmosphere. A complete assortment of wine and beer is available. Please come and enjoy.
Hours of Operation: Mon. – Wed. 4 p.m. – 10 p.m., Thur./ Fri./Sat., 12 p.m. – 12 a.m., Sun. 12 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Pedro & Lola represents an historic passage from the 19th century until today. Located adjacent to the municipal school of music, dance, and theatre, and the infamous Angela Peralta Theatre, the Pedro & Lola restaurant is culturally linked to Mazatlán. Two persons born in the region, Pedro Infante and Lola Beltran, as heirs to the musical traditions of Sinaloa, were very important vocalists in the mid-20th century. In their honor the restaurant was named and its musical tradition established.
As the cornerstone of the redeveloped Plaza Machado (aka Plazuela) since 1997, Pedro & Lola is a popular evening gathering place for nationals and foreigners alike. Live music, featuring jazz and blues, makes it a great place for leisurely dining inside or out. It is often the venue for impromptu jam sessions. The updated menu is a winner, especially with the addition of Executive Chef Alejandra Gomez Rubio.

La Casa Country was established in 1993 and has been a favorite of locals and tourists wishing to enjoy the best cuts of meat, quality Certified Angus (American cuts), and authentic Mexican food. We offer you a lively, cheerful, festive, and family oriented atmosphere in a space that is unmatched in western ranch lodge ambience in all of Mazatlán. The staff is an enthusiastic bunch of cowboys (vaqueros) dedicated to ensuring great service and an enjoyable fun-time for all.
The original Cowboy Show is always a big hit with extra fun provided by the very talented clown. In addition to the spacious main dining area, there are two sizable dining areas for private celebrations.
La Casa Country is memorable dining with entertainment at its best, most certainly to lead to many repeat visits.
Hours: 12-11 every day with 2 am closings on Friday & Saturday.

A destination restaurant in the heart of the Machado Plaza, restored to its 19th century glory across from the Eifel inspired kiosk that invites one to dine in a true Argentinean manner. The primary goal of the owners is to offer good steak, from top sirloin (Churrasco) to rib eye (Bife Ancho) to a super tender and marinated flank steak to a Mendoza Barbeque featuring a combination of top sirloin and skirt steak with a cheese sauce. A total of 10 steaks are offered (including potato and roasted vegetables) grilled as you desire (Rare, Medium Rare, Medium, or Medium Well).
A selection of 10 pastas is also presented as complete dinners or to be shared as complementary dishes. Of primary attraction is the robust offering of appetizers, turnovers, and roasted vegetables, which are unmatched in flavor and presentation in all of Mazatlán. You will hardly have room for desert.
Hours of operation: 4 pm to midnight, Tuesday through Sunday, closed Monday

“Fulfilling a dream” is what this restaurant is all about. Ever since Angelina Escutia graduated from preparatory school her passion was for the culinary arts, but the family’s heritage was shrimp farming. Off she went to Monterrey where she earned a degree international business followed by working and other life experiences. Eventually, Angelina enrolled in the Culinary Institute de Monterrey, graduating in 2006. By the time she returned to Mazatlan in 2009 she had formulated a basis for the restaurant to be.
To quote Angelina “My menu will take you on a gastronomic tour, presenting the adorable variety and diversity of the Latin American cuisine and complemented with Italian and Spanish flavors. We offer a style of food so close to my heart with many of the dishes prepared for my family for many years; now I am so happy to be able to bring them to you.”
Angelina’s Kitchen is a comfortable place with air conditioning where one can enjoy special dishes of Latin origin and experience enthusiastic customer service.

Marisco’s La Corona as its name implies has numerous seafood specials, with the emphasis on numerous. You name it and they have it. The most surprising fact is their prices are so much more reasonable than any of the other comparable restaurants. Be sure to try their fish filet stuffed with shrimp and marlin and decorated with chipotle sauce. Located directly across the street from the former El Faro hotel in Sabalo Country, they are open from 8am to approximately 9pm.

Allegro Caffe is a family owned and operated coffee shop and restaurant that, over the course of the years, has become a favorite amongst locals and visitors alike. With great breakfast dishes and a full coffee bar, it was pretty much the first place to break away from the “decades old” traditional breakfast menus and instant coffee…
We have carefully and gradually come up with a variety of appealing dishes that range from fresh fruit and healthy breakfast plates to hearty cheesy meaty plates that will help you get your day going with a smile. Although it’s mostly a morning place, our afternoon menu offers sandwiches, paninis and salads and a few other light snacks to keep you going. The downtown location has a new fuller hot sandwich menu including pulled pork, hot tuna melts and meatball subs.
Originally a coffee and desserts place, our in-house bakery produces some of the most memorable grandma-style recipe cakes and pies, available by the slice or whole when ordered in advance, like our popular NY style cheesecake or the ever favorite (you might need a knife to cut this) layered apple pie.
Open 363 days a year from 7am; breakfast is served until 1 pm.
