The Restaurant/Café is very nice and good located. I recommend one of the tables outside. You will sit on a little bridge! The food is made with love and the menu is well sorted. Also the prices are cheap! FOR LOVERS OF GERMAN BEER: THEY HAVE ERDINGER ALCOHOL FREE (very seldom) Very nice!

Loved the ambiance though we couldn't eat "on the bridge". Enjoyed the eggs and bacon, eggs with everything, fresh OJ and good coffee.

You don't find veggie burgers much in Mexico. This place has them and they are delicious!! The server asked if I wanted extra grilled veggies and of course I said of course. They'll add on mushrooms and pineapple- a tasty twist. The place overall is charming and affordable and the service was very friendly.

The restaurant's terrace is on a bridge overlooking the street and is a very pretty and picturesque place to go. This is really it's main drawing power though. The food there is pretty average. Not bad but nothing special. I'd recommend going for a drink just to enjoy the location, but there are probably better places to eat.

We had an early dinner, so we got the only free spot on the bridge. Awesome view, especially as it was graduation day. The waitress forgot one meal at first, but considering all the people outside and the people waiting in line in front, they were quite fast. The food itself was very good, too, and considering the nice view,... More
