A previous reviewer is incorrect: the restaurant is NOT gone. In fact, it was the best meal my entire two weeks in Mexico. I ordered the Cabrito Adovado (which is in fact Birria) and it was fantastic. Highly recommended, right on the Alameda.

The dessert suggestions were... More

A traditional restaurant not to be missed. You would not be disappointed with the food, I personally recommend "carne asada Virreina", which is served with the emblematic dish of the state: "enchiladas potosinas"; the chile poblano is also highly recommended. For dessert, try "principe Alberto", simply amazing. The service is always correct, the ambiance is very quiet, but sometimes you... More
