Good food, noisy street and no view

The food was really good once we finally managed to find a staff member that speaks English (not considering it a negative). The street though was extremely noisy which slightly ruins the experience. There was no view compared to their competition such as le ciel which has an amazing viee.

Very very mexican great taste, typical dishes, portions are generous, wifi, parking, clean. I have to say this again my Mexican friends found the food like been in their grandmama house, yes that good. Prices are around 15 USD per person in breakfast. The scene absolutely authentic. Solid 9.5

Los Colorines Cuernavaca is probably an offspring of a restaurant of the same name in Tepoztlan, but while the latter is decaying (mainly in service) the one in Cuernavaca has systematically improved quality, service and style without any crazy price jumps. It is now n a city of few good restaurants probably the best in quality-price ratio! Great huauzontles, sopa... More

The place is very typical, the atmosphere is pleasant, the decorations very festive, you can actually see the "Cazuelas" with the hot food while passing by towards your table. They have an open kitchen concept so you can see most of the food and how they prepared it. I visited with my mother and cousins a couple of weeks ago,... More

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. Often there is some kind of live music, small groups or trios playing for tips. The place gets pretty busy in mid-afternoon. In Mexico... More

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
