Beautiful Evening!

We went here for dinner on our trip to San Luis Potosí and had a marvelous dinner here. Be sure to order the queso fundido with mushrooms! Also we enjoyed the dry rose wine from Mexico. The waiters were very helpful- speaking English and Spanish.

Get a table at the central inner terrace. Both days we had live acoustic music. A super traditional plate is the Tampiqueña which was great, just careful because they tend to over cook it. Wonderful salsas

Great Potosino Breakfast! We had the Enchiladas Potosinas (very traditional from this region) as well as the Enchiladas Huastecas (also traditional). Both were filling and very good! Great and friendly service with a wonderful ambiance as well!

It's very close to the city center and wasn't hard to find at all. The food was delicious, kind of a mix of spanish and mexican food. If you're a big eater, you should think about ordering and entry, portions aren't large but they're sure worth it.

Great food, excellent service, good music, nice environment, valet parking, great architecture, what else can you ask for? Well, you can ask for the chamorro, it's one of their best dishes, although whatever you order, will be good!

Our business colleagues took us here for dinner. Chiles en Nogada (I think is the correct spelling) was excellent. Appetizers and all food was really good. We tried a local wine and it was wonderful. Great service and location.

Great atmosphere for formal dining, excellent service and a well executed menu to match, are the stronger points of this restaurant. The price is also a bit steep for the city - but it's a splurgy place so that shouldn't come as a surprise. What was a surprise was their coffee. I often don't expect great coffee in fancy dinner...

Great ambiance, beautiful restaurant, amazing food and good wine selection Everything we ordered was delicious and well presented. Try the pork Chamorro, a real treat! Waiters were friendly, though could be more knowledgeable of menu items. Other than that this one has 10

I ate here a few times during my 6 month stay in SLP and I can definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice atmosphere, great food and a good wine selection. The steaks are very good as are the appetizers. We came once with a large group, about 14, and all were very happy with the food... More

It has a nice atmosphere for a special meal. Its prices are towards the higher end, but not really pricey. Each dish is worth it. I love the chile hojaldrado filled with seafood. The flavor, attention, live music, and general hygiene is good.
