Los Colorines is a very reliable and delicious mexican restaurant. Whenever we have friends visiting from abroad this is a sure bet and a must-visit place. Their menu has a respectable variety and the main reason to recommend it is tha they have delicious Chiles en Nogada all year-round. This high-cuisine dish is typically served towards the ned of summer... More

My husband wanted to go there because it looked nice, typically Mexican. So I called them at about 11am to book a table for 7 people. The hostess was kind of unfriendly and told me she was not sure if at 13:30 they would have a table, but I could try maybe I will have luck. I told her: hello,... More

As always very good food in the style of Tepoztlan. Goos local food in Cuernavaca is rare except for taquerias and markets. Los Colorines offers good local fare at reasonable prices with friendly service and pleasant surroundings. The view of the kitchen is soothing special to show foreign friends!

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!
