“Beautiful dinning on a roof terrace garden under the stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

This is a hidden gem indeed! It was wonderful dinning under the stars on a roof terrace garden with a cool gentle breeze. The queso chicarron (so called because it is crunchy, not because there is pork skin) is a must order - like a delicious crunchy cheese wafer. If you are in Guadalaraja, go!

“If you're on a quest for "local" food, you'll find no better...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

When we travel we love to search out the best, little local places to eat. La Fonda de la Noche is a treasure in this regard. It's tiny, dark...even a little romantic and its food is simple local dishes at very reasonable prices. If you want to experience true Jalisco style Mexican food in an atmosphere that will relax you and make you feel like you belong, make sure you eat here.

“Warm, cozy respite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Nestled in a dark corner of this bustling city there is an escape. In a small street, opening in the early evening you find a treasure of a restaurant that seemed like the front room of someone's home. The owner welcomes you and apologizes for his lack of the English language. He describes the menu and you are charmed. You know you have to order chiles in walnut sauce stuffed with pork and fruit. Mexican beer is served in chilled pewter steins. Soft lights help you concentrate on the food. You decide to return the nest night for more.

“Great experience, nice owner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We found this hidden spot at 10:30p on a Sunday night. They gladly served us up on the roof veranda, under the full moon. We all tried the combination plate. The food was traditional and tasty. The owner was very friendly and fetched beer for us from a store as they had run out. The ambiance was very special.
