Nice play - worthwhile for a stop

Nice play with good food. Would go back. Friendly staff and a nice terrace. They have 'happy hour' and at the end... Absolutly not that expensive.

This place was a nice modern place. The food was terrific. We had two meals and 4 alcoholic drinks for around 15usd. Definitely worth a try!

This place offers and excellent and tasty breakfast buffet until 2 pm. For a very low price, you can upgrade your coffee. They had a very nice variety of choice to eat, all very good. I'm a big fan of the "chilaquiles", and they had them available. You can't beat the price, two of us had this buffet for only... More

I think for what we experienced and ate, this was great. We stumbled upon this cafe. Great to take a break in the central part of the city. Food, coffee, tea and smoothies. We had a chicken wrap and pasta salad. Free wifi is available in addition to a young, energetic vibe.

What did I like? only that they were open when I was hungry. We went there for dinner and food is not good. We ordered a vegetarian pizza, and it did not have many vegetables, not tasty....the bottle with the Parmesan was clogged and when I opened it there was a disgusting ball of parmesan cheese (maybe old and wet)...and...

Chai is a disappointing experience, despite it's nice aesthetic and lovely outdoor terrace. Hot food arrives cold, tea arrives over-brewed {they must sit on the counter for ages even when the place is not busy}, orders get mixed up {when you order hot tea with cold milk you get the opposite}. Service is hit and miss depending on who you... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to when we visit Guadalajara, the food is always fresh and tasty! The staff is always attentive and friendly... and the Lemon Freeze smoothie is delicious! The nachos aren't really to my liking, they are a bit too hard and chewy, but the crisp chicken salad was delicious, so was the... More

Very slow service and extremely bad sandwiches. Watery drinks and no imagination. I don't understand why it was crowded, I wish someone had warned me.

There a a couple of these restaurants here in Guadalajar this is the newest in Plaza Patria on Avila Camacho, Indoor and outdoor seating makes it a pleasant place to enjoy a meal of all variety. You have a choice of different food.

We went to this restaurant to have dinner and a couple of drinks. The waiters were quick enough, but the food took almost an hour to arrive. I can understand that it takes a while to prepare someone's meal, but the drinks took almost half an hour, too. How long does it take to open a beer and deliver it... More
