We took one of Monica's cooking classes. We love to cook and it seemed like a natural fit. She took us to the Farmer's Market and to the side markets in the non-tourist district of town and gave us insight into the native foods and the local customs. We sampled food and met the vendors. We purchased food for our... More

We had breakfast here one day, and enjoyed our meals very much. We came back for a cooking class with Monica- she is wonderful. A great teacher, and so much fun!

In the daytime this has good breakfast and lunch with one owner and in the evening changes the name to Rufus grill with excellent food. Most nights there is live music. Cooking classes for Mexican food are held some mornings and are very well patronised by tourists. The food quality is good and I would recommend this establishment

Our family enjoyed a Saturday morning cooking school experience with Monica and her staff. She has a wonderful setup for the class with hands on teaching and the variety of flavors were fabulous. Authentic and delicious!

We had breakfast here a few different times - all were good, tasty with handmade tortillas. Loved the spinach omelette. I also attended Monica's hands-on cooking class, which was a good value especially in comparison to other cooking classes around Mexico. The first part, at the market, was interesting as Monica explained some things about the market and bought various... More

We had a great time with Monica and the other participants! We went to the farmers market and then prepared some salsa and corn tortilla. Monica was very good at preparing and explaining. She's a great cook and made it look so easy! We would recommend taking the time to change the pace and experience something fun and new!!

We both had the BBQ ribs from this quaint little restaurant. The portion size was perfect for us but I would guess that they would get some grumbling from time to time. BBQ ribs being treated as haute cuisine is a bit incongruous. Very tasty and the three pieces of grilled veggies and dollop of frijoles was also good. Service... More

This rather unassuming restaurant is also a cooking school. One can tell by the quality and presentation of the meals that they take their culinary skills seriously. My wife and I ordered the same meal which was yellowfin tuna with vegetables. They were grilled to perfection. The meals was accompanied by a guitarist, bassist and a background rhythm section. Most... More

We had our last meal in Zihua at Patio Mexica. I loved the Picaditas. They were warm, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. We let our server know we were in a bit of a hurry. The service was excellent. Picaditas, an omelet, and a couple of margaritas (our last meal!) came in around a mere $180 MXN!!!!... More
