This is a nice, reliable middle class restaurant popular among the locals. The decor is charming rustic Mexican, the menu is typical Mexican food (central plateau region), the place is clean and the service is good.

This restaurant and its original venue in Tepoztlán have to be among my favorite Mexican restaurants ever. Sooooo good every single time, the large hand-made tortillas and hot sauce are to die for as well as the year-long Chiles en Nogada, which are usually only available Sept-Oct. everything I have tried there is delicious, please try the Lima bean (haba)...

It's basically the same food you get at more economical places all over Mexico, but with a superior ambience. Very recomendable for any occasion - couples, family, business, tourism, or just for fun with friends. My personal favorites are café de olla and chile ancho relleno de picadillo.

This is a good place for reasonably priced authentic Mexican dishes. It is similar to the original restaurant of this name in Tepotzlan. The Colorines were in season so this was good to taste, but I do think I prepare these delicious flowers better than they do here. On the other hand the chiles en nogada and stuffed chile anchos...

If you are new to Cuernavaca or visiting and want an authentic Mexican dining experience, Los Colorines is a must! Great atmosphere, great service, and great food. The food preparation area is open so you can see the cooks preparing the food using traditional cooking methods. The salsas are great and the guacamole unique! And, when you add handmade corn...

What a traditional place in the heart of Tepoztlan. Is colorful, big, great food, very nice service and, well, pretty much everything. The one but for this place would be that although food is really good it will be better if you get a table near the kitchen, since the weather is quite cold year round you do not want... More

This is an excellent, traditional Mexican restaurant which serves a good range of dishes. I like the fact that you can see right into the kitchen and so see how clean it is. I like the traditional decor, the earthenware pots and plates, the tiles. I liked the discrete live music. It is not cheap but if you are visiting... More

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!
