Food was amazing. Place is very hip and seems like it should be in Hollywood or new York. See a cool place like it was a surprise. Food was good, good drink specials.

My husband and i visited Morelia and needed a little bite for dinner. Onix was down the street from our hotel in the historic center of Morelia across from the jardin. We had the tarascan soup and the espanol sandwich. The sandwich was delicious and very unusual. I plan on recreating it when we return home. The wait staff was... More

A mix of international cuisine with local dishes and modern style, Ónix features accesible prices and bold decoration. The furniture is old and filthy and the napkins seem like they are never washed. The food is great, both in taste and presentation. This place wants to be fashion but after more than five years it requires some updates. Service is... More

Onix is on the "strip" below the Arcos on the main plaza where tourists and locals gather to dine, chat, carouse, and have a cuppa cafe. While this venue is quite noisy due to popularity, street sounds, and live music at night, it remains a place to pick up some botanas or drinks during your busy whirl around Morelia. They... More

This place has great food. The taste is truly delicious and the portion big enough to fill your stomach. Waiters are friendly and would definitely recommend any one to pay a visit.

The daily happy hour meant we went here both days while in Morelia. The decor is funky, and the menu has a nice selection of local and international options. They even have scorpions on toast if you are brave enough to try it. Our waiter was brilliant and spoke good English.The female toilets however were quite disgusting.

Went there a couple of times over a few days. Besides eating the scorpion dish, which is a must in that part of the world, it was the staff that really did it for me. They were friendly and extremely helpful and even gave us tips about the town. It is a great place and well worth the visit.

Every time I am back to Morelia I have been to this place. The staffs are brilliant they remind you as a regular guest even after one year I am not being there.

My Friend and I were doing some shopping while visiting this beautiful colonial city. Susan is so used to nice restaurants and high cousines that sometimes can be difficult to suggest a place to eat. We were very attracted to Onix restaurant because of the artistic decoration and the ambiance of the place. We were guided to second floor and... More
