Hidden gem.

We chose this restaurant based on other reviews and we we were not disappointed. Margaritas were made with fresh squeezed limes (warning the large is very large, like the rim is a foot in diameter), all the food was fresh and tasty for a very reasonable price. Ivan was great and very nice. If... read more

We were sitting in the Café Roma and it's getting lunch time. I wanted seafood, which Roma doesn't offer. The waiter suggested El Sazon, about 3 blocks away. Good call. I had a fish filet, Vickie had a shrimp tostado appetizer. Both delicious. Ivan, the owner, had a very extensive menu including fresh fish, ceviche, fajitas, tacos, pasta, and steaks.... More

This is a little gem that you cannot pass up. Wonderful margaritas, yummy food, and Ivan is an awesome host. It was empty when we went, but don't let that deter you! The lobster stuffed poblano was AMAZING. If you're looking for a place with good, authentic food and drinks for a very reasonable price this is the spot!

We were greeted by Ivan as we were passing by looking for somewhere to eat. He was really nice and the place looked very welcoming. Ivan has great customer service. We didn't wait long for our food that was very delicious!! And the beers were 20 pesos and so cold! Just what we needed in a hot day. We were... More

Doesn't look like much from the outside but has excellent and delicious fresh fish and seafood! Try the octopus or the house special pepper stuffed lobster! Although the host didn't speak much English, they had English menus so it was no problem!

Stopped in for a late breakfast/early lunch. 5 of us total. The other 4 had breakfast, me, noooo, I saw "chef's special" and went for the Octopus. Unfortunately, I'm still paying for it dearly, and it's been 4 days. They were very accommodating of my sons food allergies, and made him a fruit plate with bacon, right up his alley.... More

Stumbled across this little gem of a restaurant with my Sister-in-law while hunting for a budget worthy breakfast before a day of souvenir shopping. We were welcomed in by Ivan, one of the sweetest waiters in town. He sat us immediately even though we still had our fresh squeezed orange juice from a cart a couple of streets back. He... More

Amazing Chilaquiles! Great coffee with that wonderful nutmeg flavor. We had a full breakfast for 83 pesos.
