Just off the Zocola/square this place delights with calm, clean interior, beautiful art, furnishings, and music. So far, so good. Now for the service and food. Best mole to be found, 4 kinds. Good service, open air and relaxing. Not inexpensive, but not overpriced for the quality of ingredients and from scratch food made in house including the the tortillas.... More

Great mole. Wonderful service. Quiet and peaceful restaurant. I loved the food and the waiters were so kind and so helpful. It was a wonderful evening, and as a solo diner, I was treated like gold.

We ate there three times. Twice it was good, but on the last occasion, one of dishes was really poor. The margaritas are the best we had in La Crucecita, and the staff are lovely.

We ate twice at this restaurant and loved it. The food was great, service was very friendly and they really went above and beyond, rarely do you receive service like this in Canada. The restaurant itself was very warm and quaint. Highly recommend.

Pretty restaurant, strong margaritas, tasty food. As in typical mexican food, the presentation left something to be desired, but the taste was good - and free chips and salsa are always a must in my book.

Who knew there were so many kinds of mole? We had a great Thanksgiving dinner here. The Sangria was great; they even made it less sweet for us. We had the Avocado salad which was literally 2 avocados cut up on a few pieces of lettuce. Throw some of the hot sauce from the chips and salsa, some lime, salt... More

It's mexican traditional food but flavour is smooth. If you really want to try regional food you should go to the market in front of, better prices also.

We ate here for lunch and had a wonderful meal. The restaurant itself is very quaint and atmospheric. The service was great and the waiter recommended some traditional dishes for us to try. We loved the stuffed chillies and the lemon flavored water which was the best homemade lemonade we have ever had. Definitely recommend it.
