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. The cocktails especially the Margaritas are delicious try the tamarind or spicy mango. The music is a bit loud. It is not a place for having a... More

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

Several friends ate here a couple times and also stopped for drinks late one afternoon. We dined outside facing the large Jardin and all the activity in this bustling city. First time I ordered the local corn tamales with poblano and corn cream sauce and thought I'd gone to heaven. Great flavor! Second meal I had the tarasas soup and... More
