Outstanding food, nice atmosphere and excellent service. We're a party of 12 that became bigger and bigger because of social media comments and Clara figured out how to solve the situation without compromising service

I had a reservation for dinner but I arrived late, the hostess told me that I lost my reservation and that was perfectly understandable since I had arrived 20 minutes late. The place was full and there were no tables available for dinner, I was about to leave when I asked the hostess if we could have dinner at the... More

Lula Bistro is an innovator in the fine dinning scene. Chef Walsh has created something never seen before in Guadalajara, a sophisticated molecular cuisine that excites all 5 sences. Each dish is presented in a perfectionistic and uniquely creative manner that leaves you excited for what may come next. The flavors he creates with the local and seasonal produce are... More

The food is unique, but the prices are out of thus world for a restaurant in a warehouse, bathrooms half finished, and not even with a good view. I have paid the same amount of money for an ocean view restaurant in CA, don't waste your money here.

Don't go to Lula Bistro to get your favorite dish. Go to Lula Bistro to explore tastes, textures, and colors like you have never experienced them before -- all in combinations that are artfully assembled, beautifully presented, and thoughtfully composed from one exciting course to the next, to the next, and the next after that. Don't go to Lula Bistro... More

This was our 2nd time at Lula Bistro and we had yet another incredible experience! We now live in Japan which is per se a food mecca, but we were in GDL during the expo so we decided to go back to Lula Bistro because we had such a great dinner last time we were there. Well, we were not... More

The place is very chic and the price shows it. Well that is the bad part too chic so you must be in the mood and better not be hungry. The service is great, the food is outstanding! Our group of four went on a Friday to enjoy meals and drinks. We ended up going for hot dogs to fill... More

Athough master chef Darren Walsh was not cooking that evening (he reputedly was on a convention), the food was absolutely superb and of Michelin 2-star quality and creativity, served impeccably by well-trained staff. The premises are a rebuilt warehouse, split-level and stylishly decorated and arranged. Wonderful wine selection, not exceedingly large but top stuff available next to more "democratic" nectars...
