Our first night in PV we ate here on the recommendation of the taxi driver that took us to our lodging facility from the airport. He was correct, the food was great. The taxi driver told us if we mentioned his name to the owner we'd get something for free. The taxi driver's name was Rodrigo and we got after... More

Things look a bit different from up here. It's amazing how different things can appear from just one floor up. Watch the hustle and bustle of a busy intersection, the seamless dance of pedestrians, taxis and buses weaving back and forth. It really is a bit mesmerizing, especially after one of their famous margaritas! And the food? This place is... More

Great location in old town - upstairs on a main corner. Staff was friendly and helpful with the menu. Best guacamole of the week! Good seafood dishes - in particular the casserole if you like garlic!

We stopped in for lunch, very good. Started with the guacamole, then one of us had the chicken fajitas (all grilled chicken breast) and the other had the seafood burrito. Both were excellent. Appetizer, two entrees, one cervesa & one pop $300 pesos.

We have been to this restaurant several times in the last few years. Today was Valentines Day. Our family of 5 was looking for a good meal and instead we got a great meal. The guacamole was outstanding. We also had garlic shrimp and quesadilla. These were prepared just right. We were offered complimentary appetizers and an after dinner drink.... More

We had about 5 dinners here in a week. The restaurant is not very busy and you can easily get a sitting. It is located on top of one storey building clean and tidy. Good Mexican food. One minor problem is that it is located on a very busy intersection of Lazaro Cardenas and Insurgentes with a buses going almost... More

I love a place like this! Great for people watching. Superb street view from the upper floor and really honest, simple straight up food & served with a smile. Don't be surprised when you ask for your cheque and they offer you a free shot of tequila. I just keep coming back.
