I live in Morelia and eat here often and almost invariably take friends from out of town here. I have eaten here more times than I can count and never had a bad meal. The fish dishes are outstanding --particularly the fish fillet with a coconut crust on an avocado sauce. They have good salads and wonderful desserts including a... More

This centrally located restaurant and outdoor cafe became our favourite spot for coffee during our 5 day stay in Morelia; the americanos here were the best we had in the city. We also enjoyed a tasty breakfast and lunch here - and an excellent dinner meal which included appetizers of jellied pigs feet (simply delicious) and a fantastic green salad... More

We are visiting Morelia for 3 nights and tried Lu for dinner. We sat inside as it was rather chilly and noisy on their sidewalk seats. The indoor dining room is bright and appointed with comfortable seating and lovely artwork. We started with a soup each: a wonder soup based on black beans and another with an avocado base -... More

So, admittedly our Spanish isn't as great as it should be, and because the menu is so creative - it's a bit hard to decipher. BUT you could really just close your eyes and point to something and it would be OUTSTANDING. This was by far our favorite restaurant in Morelia. The chef is a woman who also has a... More

We had breakfast almost every day here ...each breakfast dish is a very pleasant surprise...not just to look at the presentation, but the combination of favors! The sauces, the way they mix the ingredients, the selection of items make a real unique experience that it is beyond describing. Highly recommend their taquitos de Jamaica, the traditional hot chocolate (even made... More

A nice hotel restaurant with good regional specialties, well presented and with nice service. They have options for kids as well and an English menu if you need it (but you have to ask).

Had the corte de la casa, a beef filet with frijoles and cheese sauce and nopales (a cactus), meat was top quality, especially for Mexico (love Mexican food but quality of beef isn't their strongest point). Sitting outside in front of the cathedral and garden was what made it special. Service was good too.

Enjoyed our dinner in the heart of Morelia. Traditional dishes with a twist. Good prices, great service. We had a great table, the wine list was quite good. The food was full flavoured and great presentation.

Actually part of a hotel along the Arcos venue, Lu has both indoor and outdoor dining. We preferred to be indoors away from strolling tourtists and loud traffic. The waiters are first rate, and Lu has an interesting menu with some typical Mexican dishes served with a nouvelle cuisine flare. Peregringo and I dined there twice and were extremely pleased...
