I liked it!

The food is good. I loved the decoration of this place. This is real Mexican food! I recommend visiting this restaurant when at Guanajuato!

I was a little nervous about walking in to Cafe Ofelia - because at around 8 PM on a Saturday night the place was deserted. But, I'm glad I did. I got excellent service - because I was the only one there - and the prices were incredibly low. I started with a side order of incredible guacamole which was... More

We had a couple of great meals here and the prices are better than the resturants around the corner in the square. The taco chips are fresh made but I didn't try the nachos. Why travel 2000 miles for nachos. Ask for the house special and one the owners will appear to guide though the menu... ended up with a... More

We liked this is restaurant so much we went back three times! Casa Ofelia offers delicious Mexican dishes. You have to try the flautas and the home made flan. Bright and funky decor.

We ate lunch here as the reviews were great for this restaurant. The nachos were made with canned pore on cheese! Pazole was average and the waiter was wearing a mouth guard which kind off put us off. Large menu good location behind park Jauraz.

Place looks nice, well-located, and my Mexican salad was not bad, but my son ordered nachos. They arrived as a large stack of tacos topped with a very liquidy, bright yellow sauce that they referred to as cheese. Somehow they seem to have found something grosser than velveeta! And then a couple of chopped tomatoes. That's it. Could have gotten... More

We were a little taken aback to be the only ones dining here, but we're glad we took a chance and stayed. Very nice on all accounts!

I really don't know why people rank this place higher. Maybe we were just unlucky, but I really cannot say anything special about this place. Food was just okay.

We had the daily special and were very disappointed. Instead of a beef steak, it seemed we got the odds and end pieces left over in the kitchen. The rice was also bland. Perhaps the regular menu is better. There are so many better places to eat in Guanajuato that I would just skip this.

Right near the jardin is Ophelia's, a great place for breakfast and Mexican food. They serve a Sopa Azteca that is one of the best in Mexico. It is a meal in itself and at 60 pesos its a steal. They offer many choices for breakfast, almost anything you would like. The ambiance is very nice with all sorts of... More
