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

One of the best restaurant experiences we've had while dining in Mexico! The menu is now offered in English as well as Spanish. We had four dinners and one breakfast there and were only disappointed once. That was service-related, not determined by the quality of the food. Don't miss the bread baked in corn husks, the beef consomme and the... More

We were here on a Saturday night after the fireworks at the church. Luckily we had our name on a wait list (they didn't take reservations) and had to wait just a few minutes for a table, even though there were lots of people, mainly Mexican, clamouring and barging in around us. We preferred a table inside to avoid passersby... More

indeed is a nice restaurant and well placed. The have nice exotic Mexican plates but is not a wow restaurant. I don't want to give you more expectation than I got from the beginning, but give them a try to surprise you.

Good value and beautifully presented. We were a group of four and had two appetizers, five meals and one dessert plus two bottles of wine for approx. $100 a couple. Service was good and food was delicious.

We stayed in the hotel where is located the restaurant, and we only had our breakfast ghere cos it was included. It was just fine, but something that we consider cheap is that they charge you for each extra cup of coffee you ask for. They don't offer you butter with your bread.
