More than just eating

This restaurant has a shop in one of its entrances where you can browse around while they prepare your order. Although the food is fine you come here for the atmosphere and the original decoration. It is well located in the centre of the town and a good place to relax while having a nice bite.

If you want to taste a home made Mexican food, no mixes or fusions, this is a place to visit while in Guanajuato. Decoration is not fancy,, but prices are more than solitaries.

I don't know what other people ate here, but this was possibly the worst meal ever eaten in Mexico, and we gave been to many towns and cities here. Bread was the best thing on the table, served with salsa?? The garlic chicken was a scrawny leg swimming in sauce that didn't taste too bad, but came only with broccoli... More

Excellent mole con pollo! Not at all sweet with a touch of spice. The garlic egg soup made with fresh ingredients was robust with flavor. The coffee was full bodied, balanced not bitter. After a day of walking in this historical city it gave me pleasure to sit down in this authentic local eatery conveniently located instead of settling for... More

This appears to be a favorite of locals (students, teachers, couples, but few tourists). Prices were reasonable and food was good but not exceptional. The environment was very pleasant. No credit cards. Very conveniently located.

Visited this cafe during one of strolls in the city. I loved it. They make a decent cortado by literally pulling a espresso shot in a many years old espresso machine.

Simple straightforward, tasty Mexican food. Good service. Good for gatherings, couple, families, etc. The enchiladas were quite good. so was the margarita, no sugar, just ice, juice, and tequila.

Every afternoon from 2-4, Truco 7 offers a menu of the day for 70 Pesos which includes a beer! This is a terrific value for San Miguel. The menu includes three courses with three different choices for each course. My wife and I sampled six different menu items and all of them were tasty and were larger portions then expected....

This restaurant was a big disappointment. The food was below average and the service as well. I rather eat a taco in a street corner for 15 pesos than waisting money for such a restaurant.

I eat here at least once every time I visit Guanajuato. The fixed price lunch (available after 2pm) can't be beat.
