“Craving for fine mexican food.”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I had been dreaming with the duck enchiladas with red chili sause that does not makes you cry, only served here. What a delicious first plate to share, and then we went to cave into grilled quails with oregano and spices, and a grand piece of meat in the grill. Desserst are all homemade and delicious, never pardon the corn flan.

“Great local food & wine”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

This was one of the best Mexican meals I have had - very good food and wine in a traditional setting slightly hidden from the main thoroughfares . Good service . Local menu with plenty of options to suit all tastes and good advice in choosing Mexican wine

One of the best restaurants in tow. In this place you can have real Mexican Cuisine at very high standards. The owner really makes the effort to have all his customers happy.

“Really Hidden”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

The owners were right when they named this restaurant "The Hidden Place", you have to drive really slowly throughout the San Jerónimo Avenue to spot it, behind a furniture store called Tamarindo. The place is small but has good mexican food in a cozy atmosphere.

“Codornices asadas, mmmm delicious!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

This time we called beforehand for a reservation, at 9:00 PM it was fully booked, so we decided to have an early dinner about 7:30 and we got a table. We suggest to call in advance.
The gracious owner was as usual, taking care of each table and all customers arriving. His oldest son was already helping with the fabulous style they always have.
Salmon with mustard sauce for my husband and quails in the grill with spices for me, both dishes were a special treat you can't find anywhere. Most of the dishes are creations of the owners, so we had a unique experience with each food choice.Wine list is excellent and service is the best in town.
Finished the night with a house made coconut flan, which takes you to heaven.
