Los colorines is a very good restaurant for a home style food fan. It is really very Mexican taste. The sauces are always excellent and you can find very hot and non hot dishes. It is very flavory and fullfilling experience if you like typical stuff. On the down side, if you are not Mexican, it might be difficult to... More

If you are looking for a good traditional mexican food restaurant, here it is. When entering the restaurant from the parking lot, you will pass the traditional kitchen on your right hand side. The hardware is made out of clay and put on open fire places. Served salsa is self-made and very tasty. grilled tomatoes, chillies and salt are the... More

The last time I reviewed this restaurant a few years ago I was happy to find a few unusual choices on the menu. However on my last two visits the quality of the experience and above all the food had deteriorated. It may have been bad luck twice, but I have no desire to go back and give it another... More

Enjoyed the chile relleno - lots! The restaurant is colorful and the service excellent. This is the place to go for authentic Mexican food - recommended by a resident of Cuernavaca.

The place itself is beautifully decorated as a traditional Mexican fonda, which ensures a unique atmosphere. The food is allright; it's all traditional, homemade Mexican cuisine and some of their dishes are exellent and others are nothing special. However the tortillas and sauce you get at the beginning (whie you wait for you dish) are DELICIOUS!

I'm a repeat customer and I always come back for the "Chiles en Nogada" and the "Huanzontles". The food is very good, the place is colorful and clean, and the service is quick & efficient.

Charming old fashion stile of a Mexican fonda. Good food and an open kitchen so you can decide your food looking at the "cazuelas" with the food. The Mole is very good as the "Chiles en Nogada".
