On the strength of other reviews, we came here to try the GTO brewed beer (great microbrew). The food was so good, we came back again, and then again... Service is friendly and professional. The atmosphere is very calm, with jazz playing softly in the background. The casual menu has a selection of very filling sandwiches (served with salad and... More

The long trip to Guanajuato is more than compensated for by the excellent food and service this family-owned business offers. Based off the owner's favorite recipes from interior Mexico, this restaurant is definitely worth going to. The only menu is in Spanish, but your waiter will gladly translate for you. The food is excellent, and comes at a fair price... More

A very nice atmosphere and extremely friendly owners. The food was good and the prices reasonable. I had the first soup (cactus with a name beginning with an x), the skirt steak (it was good but I should have chosen one of the others with a sauce) and the ice cream covered in cocoa powder--very good.

Very interesting menu! The owner/chef actually presented the menu to our party of 6 table side. His inspiration for offerings was a result of his family's favorite recipes from interior Mexico. Everything we ordered was excellent and a lesson in local foods. We also enjoyed walking around the neighborhood as it's composed of older homes and businesses that have been... More

We were there a couple of weeks ago and stumbled upon this nice place by luck. I have to say: Great owners, excellent food and decent prices. I tried a rather typical mexican dish and my wife had the daily menu and we were both more than satisfied with our choice. The owner even came over and we had a... More

We happened to arrive for a late dinner tonight and found the place empty. My first reaction is to look elsewhere however we received a warm welcome and decided to give it a try. That was a very good decision. First we were offered beer or wine, a little dissapointed that they did not have the full liquor to offer.... More

I had lunch here once with my husband and grand-daughter. Neither the quality nor the quantity made it outstanding in any way, it was average at best. I might add that this particular restaurant has a mighty high percentage of spanish speaking trip advisors (something the other restaurants do not have) giving it mighty high reviews...all of which are recent....
