We were welcomed for the breakfast buffet and started with delicious Mexican coffee! Loved the variety of the buffet with quality food, made-to-order omelet, chilaquiles (yum), fruit, yogurt and chile rellenos. Great, kind service - we enjoyed our meal - thank you!

Cosy dinning mexican style with a little non-mexicn twist. The staff was very polite and the food was average, which is very good :-)

We ate here numerous times liked the food but ended up with diaherra. There is a sports bar atmosphere when games are playing.

We were on our way into town and asked the taxi driver to suggest a good place for mole. He drove us to this resturant. Turned out there was no more mole that day, but there were other interesting items to capture or attention. It was just after a holiday weekend, so we were the only ones in the resturant.... More

So we first discovered this place about 20 years ago and had to go back. I think they were ready to close but welcomed us in. Had the chicken with ham and cream sauce over it, baked potato with a hint of mustard. Very rich and filling and could only eat half but it was excellent. Also had the fish... More

In fact we came twice. We had really cold beer while we were waiting for our hotel owners to return and open their door for us. We had good service so we returned for supper later. Since the slow season was just starting, there weren't a lot of people so we had very good service. All 4 of us ordered... More

We are a family of four who has travelled in Mexico extensively and really appreciates true Mexican food. This restaurant felt like it catered to gringos who don't know any better, as many of them do... More

The food was amazing -- especially the barbequed pork ribs and the chicken pibil. The waiters were very friendly and we had great service.

We ate at La Casa Vieja this morning, and had a wonderful experience. The service was warm and welcoming, and the food was delicious.
