We ate an evening meal here and found it very good indeed. It was located in our hotel, the Hotel Casino. We had a fish dish and a chicken dish, both of which were very tasty and original. The service was okay and friendly, but not up to the standards of the food. A little training should help out that,... More

Best food. So beautifully prepared and delicious. Combinations and ingredients I haven't experienced. White mole made with almonds and macadamia nuts accompanied lamb and the salad had caramelized hibiscus atop arugula and avocado. All this presented in a restaurant that faces the cathedral and central plaza but is elegantly simple. Formal and very professional service but friendly and relaxed. This... More

Although very good, not the best meal we has in Morelia. Of course if we were more familiar with language and culture, it would have helped. Hard to communicate with waiter to understand our needs.

Staff is really professional but the best is the food. Delicate and nice dishes with typical specialities. You can also find a large wine selection.

Go for the jicama tacos with jamaica sauce, it is strange but excellent. The place could do with some nicer decor but it is a nice place to sit in.

This was, by far the best restaurant I tried in Morelia and I ended up eating there four times. The restaurant is part of an hotel and face the main square with a view of the Cathedral. There are tables inside in nicely appointed rooms or outside in the partake where you can observe people strolling by. In spite its... More

I let my waiter decide for me, he brought me a local beer and a typical Mexican dish from Morelia. I'm not very fond of Mexican food (I can't stand chili/spicy food) but the waiter brought me a nice dish of nachos, cheese, pork meat and not too spicy sauce. The beer and the terrace overlooking the cathedral were amazing,... More
