A must see when in Mexico. Many groups of Mariachi all dressed up in their finery all singing at the same time for small groups or couples who pay large sums for a song. This is quintessential mexicaness. As the evening progresses you will see people singing along, tears streaming with emotion - it's just so gorgeous. If you can... More

We had a good time at Tenampa and were treated well by staff. It was the going back to hotel where we had Major problems. We were led to a "secure" taxi by a security guard on the plaza and agreed on a price with the driver. When we got to the hotel he demanded twice the amount. I told... More

Our unpleasant experience is almost identical to the review of December 28th. On December 31st we were presented a bill for 1230 pesos which should have been around 600. This was in Garabaldi Plaza but the restaurant did not have a name posted on the building. Male waiter pointed to Spanish writing at bottom of menu suggesting prices don't include... More

Avoid at all costs a certain restaurant called "La tequilera", you get talked into it by a guy outside the restaurant about how there is no cover and you only pay for what you consume... all a bunch of crap. not only did they tool about an hour to bring the bill (we asked every waiter for it, until I...

I did NOT get a good feeling about Garibaldi Square when I was there. It was filled with tourists, not so great bands, hustlers and other questionable characters. When my instincts speak, I listen. So I left.

Spent the night here recently. Great atmosphere, mariachi bands and people having good fun with it. Lots of bars, but do be careful if you vere off the beers. Got a rubbish margarita, but hey, laughed it off as it was so cheap. Great colours and lights. Only reason i gave a four rating was that when the lights go... More

Garibaldi Square its a place where you can find a little piece of Jalisco, the most representative county of Mexico, with traditional mexican food, tequila and of course, mariachi bands. Dont lost the chance to going and hear that awesome mexican musuc and enjoy the festival essence that you can breath in the air but I dont recommend the place... More

I read the other reviews and I really don't understand why people don't love this place. It is filled with music and dancing. Everywhere you look there is something different happening. I just loved everything about it and had one of the best nights out in my life here. You must give it a visit! !

Do not visit this place a man will greet you and provide you with false advertising. The information provided on the menu has hidden fees. Which are add ed at the end. Afterwards you will be threaten with violence if you dispute the fee.

It used to be a happening little plaza and surrounding area, loaded with Mariachi bands practicing while they waited for people to come by and hire them for parties or merely play a couple songs for their date. While there are still Mariachi bands there, the area is pretty run down with few restaurants and is not a good place... More
