El Mole de Jovita


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

A mexican restaurant with autentic mexican food, the special is the mole sauce witch is made like in the past, an artesian mole that takes over a week to prepare, unique texture and a chocolate taste at the end. A very house warming atmosphere, and always a good service taken by the owners themself.

The appetizers are great and the typical mole was really recommendable. The flan was really good. The margaritas are excellent but the way they offer you a more expensive version of it was a little confusing.

Ate at Mole de la Jovita today and it was more than excellent. The food melted in our mouths, the mole was to die for, and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend eating here.
