Mexican cuisine that combines the diversity of Pacific cuisine, giving life to Mazo, an international gastronomic expression of good eating that reflects the best of our culinary passion.

Maxa is also a space that invites relaxation during the day, with an unparalleled concept to be enjoyed in daylight or during its sunsets, and encourages lingering at the table with a drink. Its cuisine draws from the memory of the past, but also from the Chef’s present creativity and approach.
