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!

Great eggs, great fruit salads, and great breakfast fare overall. The banana pancakes are delicious. The coffee, however, is awful--surprisingly so! But if you get coffee elsewhere, this is the best breakfast palce we found. Affordable prices, great service, lovely décor!

Casa Ofelia is a cozy little place in central Guanajuato, and offers both Mexican and Italian food. The decoration includes a lot of crosses and dia-de-los-muertos-themed decor, which gives the place a very unique atmosphere. The service was great and the food was delicious, making this a good choice for lunch or dinner in 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
