Very elegant (and expensive) restaurant that has rapidly gained fame for its excellent cuisine and beautiful surroundings. Run by ex head chef of another Cuernavaca top-range restaurant-hotel Las Mananitas. Referenced in many websites, including a couple in tripadvisor itself: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g150797-d271372-r3273409-Las_Mananitas-Cuernavaca_Central_Mexico_and_Gulf_Coast.html http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g150797-d271372-r820449-Las_Mananitas-Cuernavaca_Central_Mexico_and_Gulf_Coast.html

Amazing atmosphere. Amazing food. And very nice attention. The place is very much like mananitas but newer and in another location. Be aware that mosquito spray will be pushed out every 2 hours so if you are in terrace you will be sprayed.

A group of us went to have lunch at El Madrigal. The avocado soup was exquisite---very tasty.The oxtail stew was excellent----along with the the most beautiful garden I have seen in cuernavaca. The owner makes you feel welcome and very hospitable.

El Madrigal is easily the most beautiful restaurant in the city. The design bears a resemblance to the terrace of a typical home in Cuernavaca. Enjoy a snack at the garden or a dinner inside. The service is second to none. You can't miss my favorite dessert: Terrina de Mango.

This is a very enjoyable place to have lunch by one of the most beautiful gardens in Cuernavaca. The Owner - Rubén Cerda - is very vigilant of all details. Great experience to have while visiting the city of eternal spring.

El Madrigal is all that is to be expected from owner and uber-gracious host Ruben Cerda. The place is beautiful, the service impeccable and the food to die for.

This place is magical! It's about a 20 minute cab ride from our hotel in El Centro - but totally worth it. When you enter through the gate you feel like you are somewhere special They invite you to sit on the couches and enjoy a drink and the sunset while you gaze on the beautiful gardens. Then we ordered... More

We have dined at this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The restaurant opens into a large beautiful garden area where the children were free to run around and play while the adults enjoyed our own conversations with our drinks and appetizers, and later our meals. The service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The meals were... More

I really liked the place. It was my first time there and I was enchanted by the cuisine and the service. Everybody is welcome there as I saw all kind of people (young, old, couples, big families, etc) At the end of our meal, the waiters suggested to take our dessert at the terrace and garden area which we really...
