Good traditional Mexican dishes

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... read more

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!

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
