We opted for the 12-course menu degustacion (tasting menu). It was phenomenal. Service was excellent -- we aren't the greatest Spanish speakers, and the staff was patient with us an spoke English to fill in what we didn't understand. The flavors were amazing, and presentation was out of this world. And, compared to restaurants/food experiences of this caliber in other... More

The menu was super interesting. Went for the 12 courses menu. Presentation was superb which all of the dishes look like art pieces. The waiter and waitress were excellent. They made the service seamless. They worked in a team and the only waitress that night even escorted us out to the taxi. She spoke fluent English as well as she... More

Found the place in google thinking it would be a traditional french bistro to have a baguette or some wine.....and SURPRISE! ...Irish Chef created this place: Modern cuisine (molecular plates), tasting menu where you choose the number of course from 6 to 14..... Great service... More

I had not been to Lula in a long time, and it surpassed my expectations yet again! The food here is not only delicious, it is art! We had the new spring 6 course tasting menu, and it was spectacular, the salad, the octopus, the fish, the coconut chocolate dessert... beautiful presentations! We will go back!

We had the new spring 6-course tasting menu, and I can say Lula competes with any of the top chef restaurants in New York or anywhere in the world! This restaurant is a true gem, congratulations...

We had researched restaurants in Guadalajara before visiting and booked before we arrived, it was busy so poking is probably recommended. This definitely would have a Michelin star (or two) if is was in the UK. They offer tasting menus and we opted for 12 courses. Each one impressed with flavour, colour, presentation and imagination. From watermelon, goats cheese and... More

Definetively one of my favorite Restaurants. Really recommend for Haute Cuisine Lovers You will get surprise by different flavors, presentations and menu never seen before. Every season has their own choices based on his Chef ( Warren ) from Ireland. Is very expensive though, but if you have the money and want to try one of the best restaurants, this... More

Went for dinner after reading about it on Lonely Planet. Reservations and an empty stomach recommended. The food was great, although this is where food meets art so not all the courses are meant to fill your stomach. I would come back again. Great for couples or groups.
