The restaurant is beautiful. You could not ask to eat in a more beautiful building. As a single diner, I felt a bit left out among all the large parties occupying the space. This is a restaurant that seems to draw a corporate and business crowd more than the casual diner, and the prices reflect it. My meal was very... More

Arrived in San Luis Potosi on a late flight. We went straight to the restaurant before hotel. Staff helped us with our bags and then we enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Great service. Great steaks. The building is in the old colonial district and is beautiful. It was a clear night and we had the stars above us. A must if... More

This restaurant in very close to the historic downtown Plaza de Armas. Once done sightseeing head here and you will not be disappointed. They have mexican food from different regions. My favorite "chile ventilla" a mix of flavors that is awesome and not hot at all. They also have an excellent show with a "trovador" that sings mexican pop. Enjoy

The place looks amazing and has very good service. Food was also really good but could be better, starting for the serving temperature, had a "lomo tres quesos" which had a ver good flavor but arrived cold to the table.

I went here for a special occasion and was a little disappointed after having read all the reviews and praises about the food. It is very average, nothing new or different, the place is quite nice. We ordered several dishes, the first course we had was soup which we had to return as it was really cold! once it came... More

This is a lovely place to eat. Over a 5-day stay in San Luis Potosi I enjoyed several meals at various times of day. For a late breakfast, sitting in the central area under blue skies, there can hardly be anywhere better in the city. Good food, well served in great surroundings. Little English is spoken, so be ready to... More

The wine list is quite extensive. This was a great setting for a business dinner. Great service too. This would be a good setting for a special... More

I had seen this restaurant on my last visit and was finally able to dine here. This romantic site is a restored, colonial mansion on the historic Venustiano Carranza street. Inside you'll find colonial furniture, art, with touches of modern decor. There is a lovely inner patio with the traditional fountain for these period homes. Two Iberian hams are on... More
