Sitting in the old home of the US Ambassador and eating essentially the same food he would have found in Cuernavaca in the '30s, was a real nostalgia trip. The food is not spectacular but the service and setting are lovely.

We also had the chile relleno and the arranchera steak. The appetizers they serve are very good. We found the service to be very good... More

We came for dinner on a Saturday night. The garden setting is lovely, it was not busy. We each had a different soup, and I had Chiles en Nogada for a main course.

You must try "chiles en nogada" around the month of october. The garden, the service and the food are excellent.

Enjoyed lunch on the lower garden patio. Great service and food. Menu only in Spanish so we ordered chile rellano and enchiladas verde. Both were excellent. Rolls were also served and they contained a pat of butter inside as well as an herb butter delivered to the table. Green salsa and chips were complimentary. Blue tortillas were also brought with...

We were looking online for a resturant in downtown Cuernavaca and found a gem. It´s the oldest restaurant in the city and it´s very well kept. The food was delicious and I fell in love with the chocolate tamal dessert. We ate there on Friday, and because it was so good, we returned on Sunday for breakfast. Our server Miguel... More

Once the home of the US Ambassador to Mexico, Dwight W. Morrow, father of Ann Morrow Lindbergh, La India Bonita is the oldest restaurant in Cuernavaca. Make sure to check out the pics by the entrance. The food is authentic Mexican and fantastic. Gluten-free or vegetarian? No problem. Want to try mole? Taste it here. Wonderful ambiance in terraced gardens... More

The food is not that great... it has a name of its own for all the years this restaurant has kept itself opened but the food is questionable and the service is poor.
