When we arrived to the restaurant about 6:30 pm, it was empty, so we decided to go for a walk. Ten minutes later, all the tables except for one were taken. The restaurant is small, it has a very nice atmosphere. My husband and I...More

Relatively new, small but open air so not too warm, and clearly devoted to excellent food. Not fussy or fancy, preferring instead to focus on the chef's inspirations and dedication. The breadth of the menu might undo a lesser chef, but everything the three of...More

My second time there since they opened. I had the stir fry. It was good but they had no aqua frescas so I went with a bottle of water. Service was light; one waiter and a busboy. No one checked on me after they took...More

Calle Pedro Ascension is a pedestrian only street, so your taxi cannot take you right to the door. But El Murmullo is not difficult to find, and it is well worth a short walk. The Italian dishes we shared were excellent, and so was the...More

They had dorado sashimi on the menu and it was delicious. Picture-worthy, I will attach. Even if we are just passing by, I know we will go back for that. This was our first meal that did not involve guacamole. A welcome change of pace....More

After daily delicious grilled fish, savory Mexican specialties (sopes, marinero's burritos, cochinita pibil) Thai food at El Murmullo was just right. Stir fry was outstanding; husband had penne arrabiata-- done al dente, spicy...not hot. Italian and Thai in Mexico--delicious!
