Lebanese Mexican?

Lebanese food in Mexico, who knew. We were heading out and were a little late, but want to immediately. We stopped at this place and had the humus and egg plant dips along with the bread salad. Both were very good. A little too much of the lettuce but otherwise great. The humus dip was excellent... read more

My wife and I stopped at La Finestra and sat outside to enjoy a wine. Our server was so nice, even though he was extremely busy...inside was very crowded. We didn't try the food, however we enjoyed the atmosphere. No complaints here.

Great food, lovely small place and even better deserts! We tried the pasta arrabiata and the pasta bolognese. Desert: apfelstrudel with icecream!

I was disappointed with the pork special. Pastillo sauce was nothing special, and the pork was just thin shaved and, again nothing special. A bit of sliced zucchini helped, but the plain white rice and white bread added little. Seemed a bit overpriced, too. The Tempranillo wine was good and bargain priced however. Seemed family run. Very pleasant folks. But,... More

Only went once for an early dinner with friends, but the food was really good. The location and setting is nice, because it's tucked away off the street, so the noise of all the festival activity was drastically reduced, and allowed us to have a nice evening.

Every time I am in San Miguel I visit this charming restaurant. Located inside Bellas Artes it is quaint and quiet. Karime the owner is a phenomenal chef and if the food weren't good enough, the desserts are amazing! I cannot stress enough how much we love their delicious meals prepared with organic local ingredients.

Great lunch spot and totally worth going for their organic gelato, made in house. Definitely recommend it.

The aromas wafting through the air waved me into this quaint restaurant. It's just my kind of spot - small, cozy, inviting with simple, relaxing music playing softly in the background. I ordered a White Wine, Pasta Arrabiata, (served with warm bread), and finished with Dessert Crepes - Fresh Strawberry with Marscapone & a cup of Chamomile Tea. Everything was... More

No smiles, no chit chat, just get down to business to take your order. The place seemed relaxing. On the board was the chef's suggestion, which had 4 items. One would think right away that everything was included but apparently you just choose one. I felt rushed and pressured to choose. I don't know what it was, maybe the demeanor.... More
