The restaurant Azotea is on top of the Hotel Los Juaninos, with a stunning view of the cathedral - especially at night. The hotel itself is a converted classic colonial style building, where the courtyard has been covered. The restaurant is a long room, which on one side faces the beautiful cathedral and the Plaza Melchor Ocampo. If the nights or evenings are not cold or it's raining, you can sit on the outside, but the space is limited and very narrow.
The restaurant boasts traditional kitchen from Morelia/Michoacán, but personally I think it was average and conservative.
The Escamoles Juaninos was in fact quite delicious, with a good balance between the fieriness of the chilli and the somewhat bland, white cheese.
The squash blossoms, which can be a revelation, was sadly overcooked and tasteless.
The chicken strips in mole sauce with tamarind was OK - I acknowledge that mole is a generic description of virtually 1000's of different recipes, but you have to know how to balance chillies, tamarind and the about 20 other ingredients in a mole - this was a near miss.
But the beer was cold and the scenery fantastic - so try to get by for a light snack and a nightcap and enjoy the view - but unless on the brink of starvation, find another place, which is easy in the myriad of good places in Morelia.
