Well, to be honest, we spent our entire 8 days in the Romantic Zone, so there might be comparable establishments in other parts of the city, not nothing to compare in the Romantic Zone. We explored a lot of places during our recent 8 day visit and found Cuates y Cuetes best by far. It was one of the first bars/restaurants we entered on our first evening here - New Year's Eve! We ordered two glasses of wine and soon found four at our table (110 pesos total). Who doesn't like Happy Hour? While going over the menu, a lovely lady dropped by to give us some suggestions. Turns out she was the owner, Ester - on the right in the picture - boy does this lady know how to run a place! The food from breakfast to dinner is great (two healthy breakfasts are in the other picture). It seems as if there is live music every night- reggae a couple of nights (the band was fabulous), sometimes Ester's husband on the sax or a fine guitar player. This is a friendly place with outstanding attentive service and a fabulous location on the water by the new pier that is magically lit in constantly changing colours and is a real attraction. One more Ester story. One night, we happened to overhear a patron talking to Ester about her establishment and wondering about the possibility of purchasing one of the restaurants plates. In no time, Ester
appeared with several plates and offered this person her choice, gratis. There are lots of good spots for food and drink in the Romantic Zone, but this spot cannot be matched. Ester also runs a small hotel a block from the restaurant which we will certainly investigate on our next trip. My earlier review was not published because tripadvisor didn't like my posting the url, but it's well worth checking out.
