I went to this restaurant for dinner and it wasn't quite what I expected. I'd heard that it was expensive and expected a formal setting but it had a very casual vibe, which I liked. the menu was also unusual and the Mexican food was a bit unusual, containing items I had not seen before. food also ranges from very...

Delicious mexican food and excellent service. I arrived with a large party (13 people) without previous reservation at dinner time. The staff was attentive and immediately arranged a table for us. They were also kind enough to let us know when parking was available so we could move our car (we had parked in one of the main avenues that... More

I took a girl here for our first date and it was perfect. The host and hostess were friendly in a genuine way. Management is very interested in customer satisfaction...to the extreme.

I was fortunate to visit this place during a business trip. Our host was local and selected the dishes for us. For drinks it was tequila ('the flag') and local beers. The menu for food was several different dishes, shared by our group of four. The explosion of flavors! All of the servings were very good, some excellent. For our... More

You get there, you get best taste. Best wines, and excellent services. A unique place have to go. We went with our family. We are senior, but sons and daughters-in-law make the moment special.

Excellent choice of a wide variety of Mexican foods, including some regional picks. Absolutely delicious, though it appears to cater a bit more to tourists/foreigners than to the local crowd.

Some friends from San Luis recommended this place. It is truly a very good place. The place is creatively decorated "Frida" style. You can choose to be inside, darker and fresh, or go on the roof terrace (smoking area). You need to try the "Enchiladas Potosinas", which are the local delight, the "torta tenoch" of arrachera, accompany this with one... More

If you want a place where you can bond with your friends on business or personally you have the right spot. Lots of colour and charisma here. I came hear a lot 17 years ago and gave it a shot this week hoping it was what I remembered and it delivered. Don't expect a gourmet meal but do expect a... More
