Description: A mexican restaurant with autentic mexican food, the special is the mole sauce witch is made like in the past, an artesian mole that takes over a week to prepare, unique texture and a chocolate taste at the end. A very house warming atmosphere, and always a good service taken by the owners themself.

This is what Mexican food should taste like. Full of complex flavors that make you wipe up every drop with one of their homemade tortillas. The service was great and I hope we come back for a 2nd dinner. They give you samples of their 3 moles to try with chips so you can choose your fav one, or two like I did, with our meal. I had a tamarindo margarita that was a tad too sweet for me but who cares?! The food was is what we came for. A must stop if you love mole.

I had been wanting to try this place for a few years and finally got around to it this visit...WONDERFUL flavors! The Jovita Mole was rich and chocolaty without being too sweet and the sides were fresh and very flavorful....the staff is lovely and accommodating and like most places in PV, it is very affordable compared to similar places in the US and Europe. There are 3 different moles to choose from, but I did prefer the original. They also serve other non mole dishes so there's something for everyone. Almost always someone there singing or playing a musical integument for your dining entertainment, so be sure to toss them 20 pesos or so as a thank you!

I can’t say enough about this place. the food is awesome, the mango margaritas are the best margaritas I ever tasted. Get there before 630 and the margaritas are two for one.

Jaime you are the best

My wife and I were walking down the street and a lady was stirring something right at the entrance of the restaurant and it smelled wonderful. I leaned over and smelled chocolate. It was chocolate mole. We went in and ate. Great mole's of 3 different types. You gotta go.

We've been here a couple of times, their mole is excellent and I love how you can get a combo of the different mole on your dish. One year we had a great margarita made of cucumber, cactus and mezcal, it was divine!
