We got there a lil bit late on a Friday evening, it was holidays or so we were told, so there were only two other tables. The food is great, some things tho didn't make sense; a pickled salad after an amazing dish with chia, before a sorbet and the main course. The main course (meat) was unbelievable but the... More

We had the tapas dinner. Could have had 4 to 12 courses. We chose the meat option and got 5 surrounding dishes all of which were exquisite, We should have come back the next night for the other 6. The presentation was fantastic and the food was wonderful. It was a great experience. I advise everyone to treat themselves.

Yes. In Guadalajara Mexico one can find a culinary masterpiece, both visually and tastebud tantalizing. Every dish is a small flavor explosion in your mouth and the presentation is second to none. Both are a work of art and would complete with any fine dining meal one may have in New York City or Las Vegas, from world renowned chefs.... More

We were so eager to try this restaurant that we arrived very early while the chef was still having his team meeting. Nonetheless we were welcomed in warmly and set up on the comfy sofas with an apperetif. Once seated the formula of the restaurant was explained to us and we ordered a 6 course tasting menu each. What followed... More

An extraordinary place - probably some of the most interesting and delicious food I have had anywhere in the world. We had the 6 course tasting menu and everything was pitch perfect, there is obviously incredibly dedication and exacting standards in the kitchen. The chef, Darren Walsh, is Irish, trained and worked in France and the US, before moving to... More

This was our third visit to Lula Bistro and the culinary artistry of Chef Darrin Walsh. The menu is a variation on prix fixe; you choose between 4,6.8,12, and 16 courses! Regardless of your selection the main course offers the choice between fish, meat, or fowl. The higher the number of courses more choices are offered. We choose the 8... More

I once again had the opportunity of an extraordinary experience at this top notch restaurant. The reason: The third anniversary of this creative enterprise. Six chefs and 18 original, distinct and stunning creations. Culinary art at its best....Congratulations and I will surely continue pampering my palate and my taste for art.
