When we stayed in Zipolite, this restaurant was only open on Friday and Saturday with a small menu. However, it was still a joy with fantastic food and a great atmosphere. We wished it had been open more often!

I have rarely eaten such good food. And I mean anywhere in the world. I live in a city that's mad about food, Sydney- and this place beats is an absolute contender for world class dining. I told Javier (who greeted us) and Paco ( his partner, the chef) should consider moving to Sydney...but think he made his choice to... More

This seemed like any little restaurant, except that the menu was very ambitious. However, it was a serious one, and four people had four very different (even ethnicity) fabulous dinners. I was hungry for a good steak, and got two big thick tenderloins, rare as I'd asked, smothered in very individually different local mushrooms in an excellent cream sauce. The... More

We first ate here in 2008 and have dreamed of going back since. My dream came true in January 2013 and I was not disappointed. Javier greeted us with warmth and recognition. The ambience and decor is funky & laid back, the service excellent and the creative delicious food prepared by Paco a foodie's dream. The menu is interesting as... More

Absolutely the very best! This place is everything you would expect of a truly fine dining experience in any major north American urban centre. Great service, fun decor and exquisite food. Not your basic Mexican fare - a bit pricier than typico (dinner for two with drinks, entres, shared appy & desert about $50 us.) but a complimentary baileys style... More
