El Aljibe de San Pedro

Constitución 710, Centro, 82000 Mazatlán, Sin., Mexico

One of Mazatlán’s most charming restaurants—if not the most charming—is El Aljibe de San Pedro, a subterranean spot that was once a cistern. It’s decorated tastefully with all sorts of paintings and antique toys. If Spanish influences are detected in the dishes, it’s not by accident; the owner is from Spain. But fresh-from-the-sea fish and other local ingredients are also found on the menu, in plates such as four-pepper tuna and Aztec chicken breast served with cactus paddle.
