I visited Mexico after several years (I spent summers here in my youth), and made a day trip to Cuernavaca, where we ate lunch at Los Colorines. What a welcome delight for my taste buds, at each and every item that was brought to the table! The guacamole was freshly made with perfectly ripe avocados, the salsa made with the... More

Frankly, I like the Colorines in Tepoztlan better than the one in Cuernavaca. The setting is lovely, very Mexican and all the dishes are classic Mexican recipes.

This restaurant is a great place for a reasonably priced and well prepared meal of traditional mexican food. The service was extremely pleasant.

A friend and I stopped for lunch and had a great time. The guacamole is served in the shell of the avocado. The chili relleno was excellent. The service was prompt and the prices were good, as well.

Very very mexican great taste, typical dishes, portions are generous, wifi, parking, clean. I have to say this again my Mexican friends found the food like been in their grandmama house, yes that good. Prices are around 15 USD per person in breakfast. The scene absolutely authentic. Solid 9.5

Los Colorines Cuernavaca is probably an offspring of a restaurant of the same name in Tepoztlan, but while the latter is decaying (mainly in service) the one in Cuernavaca has systematically improved quality, service and style without any crazy price jumps. It is now n a city of few good restaurants probably the best in quality-price ratio! Great huauzontles, sopa... More

The food was really good once we finally managed to find a staff member that speaks English (not considering it a negative). The street though was extremely noisy which slightly ruins the experience. There was no view compared to their competition such as le ciel which has an amazing viee.

The place is very typical, the atmosphere is pleasant, the decorations very festive, you can actually see the "Cazuelas" with the hot food while passing by towards your table. They have an open kitchen concept so you can see most of the food and how they prepared it. I visited with my mother and cousins a couple of weeks ago,... More

This is a nice, reliable middle class restaurant popular among the locals. The decor is charming rustic Mexican, the menu is typical Mexican food (central plateau region), the place is clean and the service is good. Often there is some kind of live music, small groups or trios playing for tips. The place gets pretty busy in mid-afternoon. In Mexico... More

This restaurant and its original venue in Tepoztlán have to be among my favorite Mexican restaurants ever. Sooooo good every single time, the large hand-made tortillas and hot sauce are to die for as well as the year-long Chiles en Nogada, which are usually only available Sept-Oct. everything I have tried there is delicious, please try the Lima bean (haba)...
