Enjoyed lunch on the lower garden patio. Great service and food. Menu only in Spanish so we ordered chile rellano and enchiladas verde. Both were excellent. Rolls were also served and they contained a pat of butter inside as well as an herb butter delivered to the table. Green salsa and chips were complimentary. Blue tortillas were also brought with...

We were looking online for a resturant in downtown Cuernavaca and found a gem. It´s the oldest restaurant in the city and it´s very well kept. The food was delicious and I fell in love with the chocolate tamal dessert. We ate there on Friday, and because it was so good, we returned on Sunday for breakfast. Our server Miguel... More

Once the home of the US Ambassador to Mexico, Dwight W. Morrow, father of Ann Morrow Lindbergh, La India Bonita is the oldest restaurant in Cuernavaca. Make sure to check out the pics by the entrance. The food is authentic Mexican and fantastic. Gluten-free or vegetarian? No problem. Want to try mole? Taste it here. Wonderful ambiance in terraced gardens... More

The food is not that great... it has a name of its own for all the years this restaurant has kept itself opened but the food is questionable and the service is poor.

The restaurant is in the house that belonged to the former US ambassador Dwight Morrow in the 1920's. It was called Casa Mañana by Mrs. Morrow because when she would ask the architect when the house would be ready he would answer her - 'mañana'. Charles Lindbergh would fly to Cuernavaca to visit Anna Morrow at this house. For many... More

This is a nice lunch spot with outdoor seating in an old home/mansion. The setting is very nice. I asked for classic Mexican and my friend brought me here, one of his favorites. Had the mole enchiladas and they were superb. Service was also attentive. THis will be a go to lunch spot when I visit Cuernavaca again.

Found the place walking around the city after it was suggested by a guide. Went in for drinks mid afternoon and wandered around the grounds which had been the weekend home of U.S. Ambassador Morrow in the late 20's. He had arranged funding for the Diego Rivera mural in the Hernan Cortes Palace. We enjoyed the setting and decided to... More
