Quiet enough to talk, brightly lit enough to eat, fast service, delicious food, satisfying portions, lovely atmosphere. We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant and will definitely recommend it to others and return ourselves.

We returned to this restaurant last night and had wonderful lamb chops which we shared. They were served in a dark fruit mole with an extremely good tamale that had hints of citrus. Two chops apiece plenty for us. Frequently we share an entre and most restaurants are great about doing so. Entrees are usually way to large. I really... More

Right in front of the Cathedral of Morelia is Lu, a local restaurant with excellent food and international standards. The service is efficient, polite and fast. The variety of dishes and beverages, all prepared with local ingredients and traditional style is enough to make you return. The menu features many specialties of Michoacan's cusine, like bread from Acámbaro, trout from... More

Where to start... very authentic local cuisine with influences from all corners of the Michoacan state. All courses and appetizers where delightful and well presented. Best meal during a 33 day vacation in Mexico and not the most expensive one, not even close. Great service, they were able to accommodate a group of us ten without reservation at peak time,... More

At lunch here while passing through Morelia. The food was fantastic. The service was excellent. The location is great - sit on the sidewalk and watch the world pass by. The price was a bit high but well worth it.

We ate here many times because we liked the food, service and position opposite the central gardens adjacent to the cathedral.

We went to this restaurant after reading lots of great reviews but we were not impressed by the service or food. We had to wait forever to get our order taken, to get silverware, and to get the check, even though the restaurant was not busy while we were there. We ordered the ceviche as an appetizer and it was... More
