This place (and Chaires next door) have the most centric location in downtown San Luis. And if you are lucky enough, you can get one of the few window-tables and enjoy the great view of the main cathedral. Basic typical Mexican dishes are served here...More

Right on the main square (Plaza de Armas) of San Luis Potosí, and adjacent to the Cathedral, this is the restaurant in the oldest and, at one time, the best hotel in this city of 1.8 million. The building is gorgeous, there is a small...More

A traditional restaurant not to be missed. You would not be disappointed with the food, I personally recommend "carne asada Virreina", which is served with the emblematic dish of the state: "enchiladas potosinas"; the chile poblano is also highly recommended. For dessert, try "principe Alberto",...More
