“Lovely people and yummy food”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

The service was terrific and friendly. On our most recent visit, they were a bit slow getting the bill to us - one of the staff was drawing a cartoon of us and our dog and they wanted to surprise us-they were waiting for him to finish. What a lovely touch! We have been trying some of the more unusual regional dishes. He had an Aztec muffin and I had Burning Heart (corn and clams) Both were very delicious. Love this place.The drinks are nice and the coffee is great. We will be back often

“Lovely setting OK food.”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

The setting is worth a visit, really quite a lovely little spot two block above the malecón. We had dinner there on night and found the food quite ordinary to not great. The margaritas were small and lack alcohol. All that said, we are still glad we went. I think breakfast might be a better fit for food though.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Maybe we were unlucky, but the night we were there half of the menu, including most the specials, was not available and the service was off-hand at best. Disappointing because local friends had raved about it, and certainly the setting is very attractive. But the food we ended up with was not only poor but poor value. Maybe we should give it another chance.

“Corazon corazon”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Nice courtyard, good service, good food. Nothing to complain about. They even offer you a sip of Mesquite after dinner! There are hearts everywhere.... It must be fun to go there on Valentine's Day (although it is probably booked hundreds of years in advance!)

“charming colonial setting with terrific food”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

We arrived with our standard poodle in tow. Was there a place outside we could sit with her ? Of course - we were welcomed and taken to the outside courtyard patio. The experience was great from the moment we entered. The restaurant is attractively decorated with lots of different and unique seating available (a tent with cushions to lounge on being one). The coffee is excellent; the drinks are delicious. The food is tasty and a little healthier than many restaurants in Mexico. There is an emphsis on fresh and not so much fried. I think the heart theme is meant to be about love, but it could also be heart healthy. We ate here three times while we were in La Paz. There are a lot of excellent restaurants in LaPaz, but this is a top pick. We'll be back. The prices aren't cheap, but they are less than you'd pay for similar quality in the USA and Canada and I think the food served here is well worth the price. You get what you pay for.
