My husband and I went to this restaurant after having read a Lonely Planet review. We went to the restaurant to see it before committing. We were warmly greeted by Jose and Andrea and made a reservation for that evening. It was a wonderful experience being there. The ambiance was relaxing and yet totally vibrant just outside in the main... More

Deliciously cooked traditional Mexican food specific to the region presented in beautiful modern plating. Natural ingredients are all bought from close-by farms. Eating here is a must if you wish to try local food. Service is slow, but the food's taste makes up for it.

The food, ambience and service in this restaurant is wonderful. An absolute must for anyone visiting Morelia. Personal favorite: the trout with coconut and avocado.

The menú de degustación is an excellent choice for a sample of Michoacan cuisine. The local mezcales and artisanal beers are also excellent.

This is an excellent restaurant, with first-class food and attentive service. It is located in the charming Casino Hotel, opposite the Cathedral.

Lu's offers great Mexican food with a flair that makes it unique in a place where so much is the same. Definitely one of the two best places to eat in Morelia. Not to be missed.

My husband and I ate here three times during our recent visit tomorrow Morelia. The food was absolutely delicious. Flavors are authentic and unique. My only complaint is that the first night we ate there they added a 120 peso tip on our bill without asking us first. I highly recommend eating at this restaurant, however if you do, check... More

It's just amazing how a pretentious restaurant like this can have such high ratings ... unless it is ONLY certain special cuisine that's being reviewed; or those diners who were so impressed by this place don't have any truly good dining experience with which to compare it. First let me say that the food was generally fair-to-good ... depending on... More

I had lunch here on a Saturday afternoon with my gf. The waiter was quick enough to bring us our drinks. I ordered a Sopa Tarasca which was very tasty whilst my gf ordered a chile relleno, she said it was delicious. We also ordered some quesadillas with different fillings, I think there was too much cheese and not so... More
