This restaurant came highly recommended by the staff at our hotel. We ordered the chiles en nogada (poblano chile stuffed with fruits and covered with a walnut sauce), which were delicious. But beware: they are HUGE! We thought there were two chiles under the tnogada sauce, they were so big. Plus, they are very rich, so none of us could... More

Each day, a 5 course "meal of the day" special is offered. It is usually around $9.00 (US) or $105 pesos. On weekends, the price is a little higher but the food offerings are more extensive. Food is excellent, service comparable to a 5 star restaurant, value unbelievable! And, of course, you may order "a la carte" off of the... More

One has the choice of a full menu, or a fixed five course meal with two... More

If you want to try mole over eggs, the Hotel Colonial Restaurant offers a breakfast special with mole over either scrambled or fried eggs. It includes toast and refritos and coffee as well. A delicious way to try a regional specialty.

This was our second stay at the hotel, which we reviewed last year. This year we wanted to review the restaurant. First, the service in the restaurant is as good as it gets. The waiters are very professional, old school, but wam and personable. Here's an example of a mistake on our part and how they handeled it. We flat... More
