Good mexican food with a nice variety of dishes. It seems that reservations are a good idea but we got a table right away. Very attentive staff and the lady who owns it took time to chat. The decor is unique and interesting, especially for Freda Kahlo fans. Not your average stop so expect to pay a reasonable amount for excellent food.

The Red Cabbage serves simple, straight-forward Mexican cuisine perfectly done. By simple, I do not mean that the preparation of good Mexican food is simple -- it is certainly not. The spices and chiles that go into these meals bring a great complexity to the food. I just mean that there are no frills. What you get is real authentic, and to me, excellent Mexican cuisine. Service varies. If the gentlemen that remembers me from one time a year is there, it is excellent. If he is not (as on the Sunday for my second visit this year), the young men waiting tables don't quite know how to keep an eye out.

You really want to go here. Our very knowledgeable concierge told us it was the best real Mexican food in PV and she is correct. It's not in the middle of everything but every cab driver knows it. And its overall funk quota makes it a joy.

On the first night we didn't have enough cash (no credit cards) and Boss Lola said come back tomorrow and pay me. Which of course we did and enjoyed our second night's dinner.

It's not cheap but it's not expensive and the value and quality and taste and service are the tops. You'll want to go.

The atmosphere competes with the food, and both are excellent. Dine on dishes based on recipes from the Diego Rivera/Frida Kahlo household. Very well prepared. The decor is outstanding, with lots of posters and hand painted tables with lots of interesting things to look at. Service was very good.

Authentic mexican fare, beautiful setting by the river....had the peanut soup and chiles peccadillos.
Not the cheapest, but not terrible on the checkbook (actually it is cash only btw)
