Probably the best restaurant we ate at during our 7 night stay. While not an extensive menu, the food was excellently prepared and presented. The Owner is also the Chef and he made the effort to come and explain the dishes on the menu (my Spanish is limited) which was a great help in ordering. Would definitely go back.

It was so good that we went back the next day. And it's not even that expensive! Try the beef and the sweet stuff! Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Ate lunch there and couldn't have been happier. The place was empty but the service and food were both exceptional. We couldn't believe how cheap it was for the quality.

This was my girlfriend and I s best meal of our two week Mexico trip. The decor is charming and the food is delicious and creatively presented. The chef came out to ask if we enjoyed the meal, nice touch.

I enjoyed this restaurant. A small place, cozy surroundings with ceramic art displayed. I had the filet mignon with caramelized onions; it was delicious. Carmen had the salmon which was excellent as well. We had tapas as an appetizer and they were very tasty. We both had the house wines and they were very good for the price. The food... More

This was our favorite restaurant that we ate in on this trip. The food is fantastic and the prices are incredibly low. I had a filet mignon 11/2 inches thick with caramelized onions in a reduced balsamic with goat cheese for the equivalent of 9.00 US dollars. Glass of house wine was reasonable and it was a full bodied malbec.... More

We both had their onion soup spiced with a little brandy and it was excellent. I had a beef tenderloin covered with carmelized onions that I do not think that I have had a better one at any restaurant in the world at any price. This outstanding dish was under $10 US. Since we live in Sonora we know the... More

Wonderful meal in a delightful dining room. It was quiet on a Thursday night, and our server had little to do but make sure our tiniest needs were met with grace and style. The food was so good it was difficult to get my girlfriend to share.
