Tried to get a reservation for two days but because of a national holiday it was closed. Definitely worth the wait. We live in a large city and have plenty of excellent restaurants. This one was outstanding. Waiter was really good and had spent time in the US and London at several restaurants. Food was cooked perfectly, atmosphere was great... More

This is a first class restaurant. From a personal tour of the wine room to a full description from the chef of the fresh seafood and beef. The service was incredible, the wine delightful and the meal memorable

What a great place, except, a bit deceiving. You are taken to look at local sea food, steaks, then taken back to your table. I asked about the prices of a few of the fresh dishes, then decided to order off of the menu, well to my surprise when the bill came, they brought me what was on the fresh... More

Amazing setting in old historic home. Arrive before 8:00 and beat the crowd. If you are there before the "crush" you can sit on the front terrace which makes the experience top notch. Food was great, but remember you are in Mexico where meals are not rushed. Service was very good, but allocate at least two hours for dinner.

Why was Cocina 88 fun? First, because the setting was beautiful, We dined outside, and were surrounded by trees (even though a very busy street was close by). Second, because we were shown the food that we could order: seafood, beef....It made choosing among the specials more personal. I saw some good looking octopus, and ordered it. More important than...

Food is very good, but if you are not local ask for prices in advance,,,, it a bit of smoke and mirrors on pricing other wise.

My husband and son visited me over the weekend in Guadalajara, and we went to this great restaurant within walking distance of our hotel (La Perla.) Recommended by the hotel owners, they were absolutely right. The service was perfect, with just enough suggestions but not too much, and the ceviche and fish were all excellent.

The food was absolutely amazing. Would definately recommend there steaks. However found the waitress really awkward, it was as if she was plate watching. Maybe better to go at a busier time. When it came to paying the bill, all the kitchen staff and chefs and waitresses came out to hover near to ensure you tipped enough which I just... More

Excellent place for seafood! A nice romantic terrace in the front to sit and eat and watch the traffic. A word of caution though: it was our first time there and they told us that we had to go to the back and pick out what we wanted and then we go to the wine cellar and pick out the... More

They also have a good location and an excellent place. At nights you can have a romantic or familiar dinner. It's also good for buisness meetings. They have a good diversity in wines and alcoholic beverages. Their steaks and sea dishes are very tasty. Make sure you leave some room for desert too. Location is really good because is real... More
