Water's Edge has a wonderful, inventive menu enhanced by farm-to-table produce and fresh ingredients. Canadian owners Tracy and husband-chef Alistair always receive us as old friends and are attentive to our every need. We love dinners there, but just as often stop in for appetizers, cocktails or to listen to music. Located in the historic center, my adult son and... More

I have walked by Waters Edge hundreds of times but never stopped in. Had friends down and decided to give it a try as I had heard good things about it. When we walked through the main entry bar area into the back room and the patio area I was stunned at how nice the restaurant was. We ordered our... More

The Waters Edge has one the best lunches in Centro. Not only is the restaurant well appointed, elegant, and clean but they hire and retain the best bi-lingual staff. They run a lunch special that includes a main course and it comes with a drink. The food prepared here is locally sourced, organic when possible and cooked from scratch. You... More

Our group of 4 enjoyed the gyoza, ahi salad, ahi tower, beet and goat cheese salad, house apple lettuce salad, Thai prawns in a... More

I've wanted to try this restaurant since it opened and was located near the water. To be honest, today's visit was unplanned as the nearby restaurant our foursome was going to was closed. They offer a fixed price menu of 120 pesos with a wide selection of entree choices that also include a beer, soft drink or lemonade. Our guests... More

An absolutely wonderful place in EVERY respect! We were seated in a lovely outdoor patio being attended by a friendly and utterly professional waiter ("Alfonso"). Now to the food: I started with roasted garlic - and smelled of garlic like Gilroy, CA still next morning :-) My wife enjoyed delicious Thai red curry shrimp (carefully spiced - hot but not... More

Sangria is a choice for an additional 20 pesos. Our lunch items today; Asian chicken salad and penne pesto with chicken with both fresh and flavorful. The bistro was tastefully decorated, clean...

2nd to last night in Mazatlan- after watching the sun set, we walked around Machada square looking at all the restaurants and menus. I had seen this on tripadvisor and was interested but needed my husband to decide this was the place. So glad he could read my mind bc we were not disappointed at all! Being the beginning of...

The food and service was excellent. It was one of the best meals I have had in my whole life. We had the anitpasto which was delicious. I had the chicken with portobello's and it was one of the best entree's I've ever had. The restaurant is quaint with a beautiful patio. I highly recommend this restaurant!
