We went here our last night and wish we had gone before because we would have made this our evening meal throughout our time in the area. Had a Provoleta and Molleja to start which were done to perfection. They do a new twist on the cheese which was an unexpected treat. Then the meats came and as I wrote... More

The best dinner date I had in the entire stay in all of Chiapas was Argentinian Cuisine. Everything from the wine, the cheese platter, beef empanadas, fries and the different sauces and dips that accompanied the entrees was like nothing I've had before. A must on your to do list in Mexico.

The ribeye is the best in town. But do you research and I think you will find out the meat actually is imported from Kanas United States. But I will return no matter it is that good!

We had dinner at this restaurant, great atmosphere and location, friendly staff. Food was very, very good, huge portions. The wine was great! Prices are a bit higher than usual in Mexico, but worth it!

We went here for dinner one night. Great service from the start, very attentive staff! We had an antipasto entree which was delicious! Two of us had t-bone steak and it was amazing!

Stumbled on the restaurant by chance and we were pleased to enjoy such a wonderful meal. This restaurant delivers in ambiance, service and quality. It is worth it. Don't think twice, just go!

Not a cheap place, but it's premium location and nice interiors make a good impression. The food quality is OK, but the cost doesn't reflect what you get. I ordered a medium rare Entraña and I got a well done one.

We wouldn't say that the food was bad or the service inattentive. However, in a fascinating city with so many culinary options, why bother? We spent five times as much as we normally would for a meal and did not feel we experienced added value.
