I sought this place out for their Chiles en nogada. They we're good. My husband ordered ribs in chipotle which were quite fatty and only a hint of chipotle. All in all ... too expensive for what we got. Much better places in Bucerias or...More

We come every year---walk there and taxi back---and enjoy the atmosphere, food and the amazing decor and service. One of our party of 3 is vegetarian and finds something on the vegetarian menu.

First time experience with another couple who goes whenever in town. Definitely the best Mexican food I have ever had! (I have had a lot) Service was very good. Well worth the trip to this out of the way and hidden spot.

You need to be allowed through a short, closed gate to access this very popular tourist restaurant along the Rio Cuale. It lists vegetarian selections, but also includes a disclaimer that these dishes may be prepared with chicken products. The knowledgeable owner explained to me...More
