Good Food and Experience

Went there for a business dinner. My host said it was an authentic Mexican restaurant. It was a rainy night, but though there is an openness of the restaurant, we still were able to dine (and watch Mexico - Panama in Oro Copa). The high ceilings and archways showed a lot of character and made an... read more

The food here is very good and the atmosphere feels genuine. My biggest complaint was the Mariachi band. Even though they were several tables away, they were way too loud for my tastes, making it difficult to have a conversation with my friend. However, the food was pretty wonderful, they start you off with chips and extras, then a lady... More

We passed this place on the way back from Plaza del Zapatos, a stone's throw away. I'd passed it several times before with the intention of going. The timing was right and we went in, there was a live mariachi band and the place was nearly full. In fact it looks like a typical Mexican restaurant in the states, and... More

Unlike so many restaurants in Mexico where consistency seems to be an issue, the food was just as good as during our visit three years prior. Location adjacent to the Zona Piel makes it a perfect place for a bite to eat.

This restaurant is very large and offers a lot of topical and regional dishes. They offer custom made salsas. Prices are pricey though. Avoid the window seats next to the main blvd there is a sewer line near.

We visited this restaurant on New Years Day of 2014. It has a nice decor and the serving staff had nice outfits. We arrived at 7:40 and they were reluctant to let us in since they said they closed at 8 o'clock. We told them we would eat quickly. Ordered a drink and then were told that we could have... More

This place was nice and the food was ok, but the quality seemed to be in question. Either the kitchen prep was sorry, or they rewind left overs and present them well. I did not eat a lot, but a few smells got me twisted. The prices are a bit high for this area, but with some economic upsurge because... More

Very pleasant place to eat. The service was excellent, the chilies en nogada were the best we have had, the salsa was ground at the table and was spot on to what we asked her to make. The place is very pretty and the outdoor areas are large and comfortable. We look forward to going back as soon as possible.
