This restaurant was a highlight of our trip to San Luis Potosi. Try the cactus appetizer! Great tequila choices. Everyone in our group loved their meals. The decor was educational and beautiful! A must visit! You won't be disappointed.

The place is very nice, is like a family restaurant, but the service is slow and the food it is Mexican but is not impressive. I do recommend this place just for the environment but not the food.

Considero que los precios son razonables para el tipo y calidad de alimentos que sirven. Sin bebidas alcohólicas diría que aprox. $250.00 p.p., porque el tamaño de los platillos no es precisamente pequeño....disfrútenlo.
