“This is the Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

My wife and I and our family have been visiting Casa Triskell every year for at least six years. We are looking forward to seeing Lionel and eating his great crepes again in March 2013. He is a real French chef and he has a wide variety of crepes. I think my wife took the picture with the ice cream and forks for his great dessert crepe. This is a tiny place with charm and quiet as it is not on the main street. It is clean. The host is gracious. And if you speak French, Spanish or English you can get just what you want in crepes from Lionel.

“More like 10 Stars, really!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is a DO NOT MISS restaurant when you're in Bucerias.

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that eating crepes is cheating on Mexico. Well, it is not! Have the Buceriana or the Mexicana crepe. The Mexicana is my favorite. It is so yummy. Actually, I finally broke down and had a dessert crepe and it maybe beat the Mexicana. You have to go here because Lionel makes great food, he's pretty neat, and he deserves your vacation dollar. You'll be so happy that you decided to eat here. It is usually our first stop, a few of our middle stops, and our last stop when we're in Bucerias. I love these crepes!

“I'll be baaaaaack......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We had been hearing a lot from friends and neighbours about this restaurant so a group of us decided to try it out last night. We were not dispointed! The crepes were excellent, the salad was fresh, theservice was outstanding and we all had a super time. Thank you.

One small caution. The drink options are a bit limited so don’t expect to be able to order your favourite exotic cocktail, cervesa or wine. On the other hand, you are more than welcome to bring your own wine (& glasses); PLUS the special drink of the night is usually outstanding. Last night the special drink was a rum punch loaded with fresh fruit and juices. It was almost too healthy!

The coffees here are some of the best we’ve had in Mexico, the dessert crepes are decadent and best of all, the prices are very very reasonable.

I’d highly recommend this place for lunch, a quiet morning coffee or a no-nonsense evening meal!

“New location, still the great food and friendly service...!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Casa Triskell is one of our 'must-do' restaurants whenever we're in Bucerias. The quality of the food and the atmosphere (as well as the friendly service) keep us coming back time and time again. This last trip my wife and I visited them twice - once for a quick lunch of a savory crepe and dessert crepe, and a second time for coffee and dessert after a dinner at the steakhouse next door (another review coming for that restaurant). My wife loves the limon' crepe and my favorite dessert crepe is the cajeta - you can't go wrong with either one...!!!

Besides the delicious food, the owner and his wife are what makes this place so special. They are very friendly and make you feel welcome whenever you stop in. We've been going there on our yearly vacation for the last 3 years and the owner remembers us and comes out from the kitchen to say hello whenever we're there.

If you've been to the smaller original location you know how small the seating area was. Earlier this year they moved across the street to the brick building on the corner of Hidalgo & Mexico that used to be the location of the Twisted Rose (kitty corner from Yo Yo Mo's) - just ask the taxi drive to take you to Yo Yo Mo's and you'll be withing 50 ft of Casa Triskell.
