Had a business dinner at Madrigal the other day and was very pleased by the experience. The setting was wonderful. With a great garden, the restaurant is completely open to it providing a great view from every spot. The service was excellent and the food did not disappoint. I would highly recommend going to lunch or dinner if you are... More

Loved the fact that there was an 'a la carte' menu on Dec 24th so each family member could eat what they wanted instead of having to eat a set menu!!!! There were 8 of us...we had a delicious meal with great service and it worked out at a very fair cost.

El Madrigal was first introduced to my husband and me by a local. To our delight, the place is set far away from the bustle of Cuernavaca's downtown. The grounds are lovely and the plants and flowers illuminated in the evening. Live music is always top-notch. The atmosphere is elegant, yet relaxed. While a reservation is recommended, the host will... More

Incredible place and superb garden. Just been here is an amazing experience, relaxing and comfort with an excellent service. This place is unique, excellent for breakfast lunch or dinner, an amazing for just a drink enjoying the view. A little overprice but the surroundings worth it.

My friends who are 3 years expat's in Cuernavaca took me here and we enjoyed a delicious Mexican breakfast in a relaxing courtyard atmosphere. Fresh-squeezed juices, a wide variety of mexican dishes to choose from. Attentive service. No complaints at all. Of course the price ranges are somewhat above average but well worth it.

Visiting the area and went to dinner with 5 other friends. We started with drinks in the garden which is lovely and spacious. Children were running and playing on the lawn, large enough to not be too loud for us sitting nearby. Dinner was served in the dining room; the service was excellent and the food (seafood, steak and Mexican... More
