For a wonderful dining experience in Cuernavaca, visit this fine establishment and you will be treated to incredible food and excellent service in a beautiful, tranquil setting. The best octopus I've ever had! We were a group of nine women and each of us raved about our delicious meals.

This restaurant has overtaken Mananitas as the most pleasant option with good food in Cuernavaca. Set in a garden location it has pleasant tables on a space terrace. Service is excellent and the menu has variety and is well served.

Our host took us to this treasure of a restaurant in the middle of a residential area in Cuernavaca. Surrounded by tropical landscaping and blue skies, we leisurely enjoyed cocktails and appetizers before the entire party arrived. The restaurant is decorated with incredible traditional and contemporary paintings and hand painted chandeliers. The entire restaurant is open to the wonderful inner... More

I will definitely make a stop next time I am around. The menu is quite comprehensive and the quality of the food was really good. The ambiance was also without complaint. The only thing I would encourage the restaurant to do is to teach the servers more about their wine and drinks selection, but at least they were happy to... More

After another restaurant (House Cafe, see review) rudely cancelled our reservations for New Year's Eve at the last minute, El Madrigal came through beautifully and put together a table for us. We ended up getting there early as we were worried about the traffic and given our bad luck so far, did not want to run any risks, but they... More

I was invited to a big Lunch. The food was OK, but nothing special. The service was poor and the surroundings pretentious. They try to imitate mañanitas but they ae way behind in everything but prices.

We had dinner with friends from Texas and Mexico City. The margaritas were crisp and cold. The menu selections of salmon, shrimp, tortilla soup, ceviche were excellent. The service was attentive and appropriate. The atmosphere and surrounding areas were breath taking. Well worth the visit!
