“Exquisite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Read many reviews before deciding on this restaurant and they were all correct (the positive ones). I went for my birthday/anniversary dinner and the restaurant is romantic. The interior is very interesting and lovely. The servers obviously have been there forever which is a good sign. The waiter was most helpful with recommendations. The food was divine. Yes--try the quesadillas in the rose petal and strawberry sauce. The one improvement--as was mentioned by another reviewer--was that the food could have been served a bit hotter. It was warm, but not hot enough. So, don't be afraid to mention this as you order. Otherwise, quite a spectacular meal. I had the wide chili stuffed with shrimp. What a savory delight!

“An exquisite memorable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Sacromonte is one of the best places to eat in Guadalajara.
A delicious mix of flavours from both mexican and spanish cuisines.
All dishes were succulent and very appealing.
Don't miss to order some dessert. The mood in the restaurant is ver nice.
I can't wait to go again.

“Very good-tres bon-muy bueno-molto buono.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is truly a special place, both for its excellent food and for its setting. This is "haute cuisine" the mexican way. The quality of the food is superb, the preparation delicious, the service impeccable. The prices are very reasonable considering that this is definitely a gastronomic landmark in Guadalajara. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Now a Tradition in Guadalajara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I have been a El Sacromonte customer for over 15 years now and this is by far one of my favorite restaurants. The environment plus the dishes are simply fantastic. You can see a lot of Bull Fighting memorabilia as well as some good art, such as Botero's painting replicas. One thing that I have noticed is, the servers working there have been around for years, which pretty much tells how good place to work at this is, a happy server will give you their best service.

I just love it.

“Beautiful setting and an amazing menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Our host ordered a little bit of everything and we loved it all! The food was fantastic and unusual, the setting, with lovely Spanish art and memorabilia from bull fighting was romantic and very beautiful and the service was top notch!
