Long ago, Jose Manuel Machado moved to San Diego in 1781. Machado had three homes for his wife and 15 children. One of the homes burned to the ground.
Many things were built on the spot; currently, there is a two-story building on the site. It features office rooms, a banquet hall, and indoor and outdoor dining areas.
There is said to be one woman who haunts the restaurant. She likes to sit at one corner table when the blinds are drawn. People who have seen her state that she is wearing Victorian garb and either appear angry or sad.
People have also claimed she can float through the air as well as through walls.
At the time of updating this article, the Restaurant is closed. [Nov 19, 2020]
