We stopped for breakfast one morning and had a very flavorful croissant style sandwich that if there weren’t so many other places to eat at I’d have gone and ordered it again. Later in the trip we stopped for dinner. Chili’s en nogadas. I cannot begin to say how delicious it was. I believe I need to move to Mazatlan and eat my way through the entire menu. It would take at least 6 months. ❤️

Panamá is a small local chain of family restaurants along the lines of Denny's or VIPs, but with good quality food and service, for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night. It actually ran the national VIPs out of town, as people here so prefer Panama.

If you want a taste of Sinaloa it is a good bet, very consistent, with both local dishes and "aguas frescas" or fresh-fruit-flavored waters and frappes. If you want to share the joy of a party, this is the place to watch as locals celebrate birthdays, wedding and baby showers.

They have dim-sum-style carts with both appetizers and desserts. Panama is also a bakery and caterer, so be sure to look through that section when visiting the restaurant. It can get very noisy since it's so popular.

After dinner we walk and end up at Panama for dessert either to take back to the room or sometimes we sit down and enjoy a piece of flan with coffee, or choco cake. We love the bakery here but they also have good dinners, lunch or breakfast. Fun restaurant

This place has it all, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very attentive, friendly service and extensive menu. Even a dessert cart. It was very clean with booths, or tables and upstairs or down dining and even bakery.

The Chiles en Nogada with refried beans, and rice was very good. Nice size portions and lots of walnut sauce for only 135 pesos. Enchiladas with beans, papas and cheese also very good at 109 pesos. Portions were of a good size. They come around with a dessert cart and you pick the dessert you would like. The strawberry cheesecake was very good and the Carrot cake was delicious.

They have sodas, juices, smoothies, but no alcohol. A very reasonable meal was had and we would most certainly return.

We had another wonderful breakfast (large menu, with diverse offereings) at the Panama Bakery. We always stop at the bakery on our way out to stock up on some treats for the remainder of our stay in Mazatlan
