We only sat in a couch by the lawn and had some drinks and munchies but the wait staff was very helpful and attentive. The restaurant was very busy. I was a bit disappointed the decor wasn't more Mexican style. The restrooms are my barometer and they were rather boring. I have heard the food is very good but we... More

This is one of the most famous and traditional places in Cuernavaca. Although it is expensive, the place is beautiful, the service is fantastic and the food is quite good.

We had dinner here. It was great. We were told that they took the chef from Las Mananitas where we had a great lunch. Definitely worth eating here.

For either fine Mexican or continental cuisine while enjoying a lovely garden, we always go to El Madrigal with family or friends.

We were looking for an alternative to other famous and traditional upscale restaurants in Cuernavaca. After checking on Trip Advisor, we decided on this restaurant. It was a very rainy Saturday so the garden was not available to sit in and enjoy but the view even with the rain was beautiful. One thing that set this restaurant apart was the... More

I don't think I've ever been to a more beautiful restaurant. The grounds are lust. The restaurant itself boasts an amazing collection of artwork by local artists. The food and service matched their surroundings. I had a pasta dish with huitlacoche, cashews and pesto. My companion had pasta with Shrimp. Both were wonderful.

Thank asjanssen

Very elegant (and expensive) restaurant that has rapidly gained fame for its excellent cuisine and beautiful surroundings. Run by ex head chef of another Cuernavaca top-range restaurant-hotel Las Mananitas.

Referenced in many websites, including a couple in tripadvisor itself:
