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.

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at El Madrigal. The cocktails, food and service were excellent. We went back 2 days later to celebrate his birthday with our children. There is a large garden so there is space for your children to run around and play. The garden is secure and you can see your children at all... More

It has a great ambiance, it has beautiful gardens and great service from the moment you arrive, they put you in a nice living room beside the chimney where you can wait for your table and have a drink, sadly the food is just blah.

Hacienda type setting with lawns trees patios. You get treated like you are the Patron of the Hacienda with service second to none. Great place for family gatherings with the kids playing away from the table but you can see them the whole time. Start with a Martini, then I have not had a bad meal here in 4 times... More

Visiting this restaurant is like stepping into a beautiful garden. The food and the surroundings are indeed excellent. Charming is the word I would use to describe this dining experience, and it is an experience. First we enjoyed a great tasting margarita and appetizers on the lawn. Ruben, the owner, is ever present and totally welcoming and gracious. The restaurant... More

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:
