And good food and service as a bonus :) We got lunch there one day - sandwiches, crepes, juices and cappuccino, and all was excellent. The servers were all friendly and fun, and very accommodating with special food requests for our kids. Sitting on that bridge watching people and enjoying the breeze under the shade of the umbrellas is just... More

After passing under the bridge every day while walking into town, and on the recommendation of friends, we finally decided to have breakfast here. We just automatically sat outside on the bridge and it wasn't until after we had ordered that my husband looked inside and saw the rest of the restaurant. Which he also liked. We had one order...

We had been walking under the bridge for weeks, but today we walked up the ramp and experienced the restaurant for lunch. We were encouraged to sit inside and leave the table of four places for others. Inside there is a lot of room. We had a nice table for two by the window. We had an excellent lunch. I... More

A really tasty start to the day. It was our first day here so it took a while to find, but came recommended by the person we were staying with. It didn't disappoint. We had Huevos Rancheros and Huevos Aztecas (excuse my spelling if I got them wrong) and they were simple but delicious. The Mango Agua Fresca and Choc/banana... More

After crossing under their bridge for for 3 weeks I finally decided to give Cafe Santo a try for lunch. The service was good, but the quality of that days special was average at best when compared to many other establishments in the city. What made this cafe unique though was that you can dine on the patio/ bridge that... More

when my chicken qasadia arrived, there were three of them; a lot of food. They looked bland but they tasted delicious and all that came with them was guacamole. At home I expect salsa and sour cream sides to make it complete but here those aren't necessary. How do they do it? And so cheap! the greeting was super, the... More

The food is not overly impressive, but I've come here a lot and it's always good. The service is great, and they are always willing to help. Sitting on the bridge on a nice day bumps up the rating no matter the food. At night the drinks are good and it's a good place to socialize with friends.

We crossed the bridge to enter this cute restaurant. We would have enjoyed eating on the bridge, except that this is where people could smoke cigarettes - and the outside seats had no backing. But "no problem" - the inside of the restaurant is lovely, with beautiful photos of the city displayed on the walls. We sat right by an... More
