This is a question of preference and not always a negative but to me Gran Via is stuck in the past. It would be my grandfather favorite restaurant. The setting has some caché and with some tweaks could be perceived as boutique while being of timeless elegance. The food was comforting but also very much from 30 years ago. Even... More

I loved the food here! The atmosphere is elegant and there were lots of businessmen. The paella was great as was the fish with shrimps and dressed with a creamy sauce, delicious, though cannot remember the name. The basket of bread was soft but be careful with the sauce as it has jalapeño peppers and it was really hot. Service... More

We were choosing this restaurant due to the various good recommondations from local people. The rooms of the restaurants are nicely decorated however the atmosphere was very steril and did not give you a warm Feeling. Despite the efforts of the Servers we did not feel that this is going to be a nice evening with a relaxing surrounding. The... More

Nice place if you want a dinner on the elegant side and near the town center. Food was good, nothing amazing but it was fine. Well priced and exceptional service. It is a bit formal of a place but it was a fun evening.

We hosted a retirement dinner upon a local's recommendation. Excellent location near the city center and a great old building. Staff was very good and attentive. Wine list is excellent. Everyone enjoyed the food, with no negative comments. My Shrimp Taj Mahal was excellent, with a sesame crust and a terrific sauce. I highly recommend this restaurant in SLP.

The stunning interior in this traditional restaurant makes the experience. As in most of Mexico, service is always friendly and warm. First I was a little doubtful about the buffet but my company enjoyed it, while I chose from the a la carte. The creme brûlée deserves a little shoutout.
