My family and I were directed to Casa Tradicional by a passionate local who spoke high praises, and we were not disappointed. We were promised an authentic experience with home-made Mexican cuisine but left with more than expected. While the food was certainly nothing to...More

The highlights for me were the homemade salsa prepared at your table with roasted tomatoes and peppers. The other was the fantastic margaritas which are free poured at your table. The service was spot-on and restaurant had a vibrant energy.

Very good food and atmosphere. We had guacamole and they made it table side. We ordered flaming rib eye fajitas and a chicken dish they recommended. Good choices.

The food was absolutely amazing!! Be sure to get the salsa & guacamole (both prepared table side), as well as the tortilla soup (REAL tortilla soup, not what’s served in the US), the Vallarta ceviche, the chicken mole & the incredible flan. Did not disappoint!

It might be a good idea to do so, we arrived early evening and were seated straight away but It was nearly full when we left.
