“Great breakfast; and cooking class”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

We had breakfast here one day, and enjoyed our meals very much. We came back for a cooking class with Monica- she is wonderful. A great teacher, and so much fun!

“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

In the daytime this has good breakfast and lunch with one owner and in the evening changes the name to Rufus grill with excellent food. Most nights there is live music. Cooking classes for Mexican food are held some mornings and are very well patronised by tourists. The food quality is good and I would recommend this establishment

Our family enjoyed a Saturday morning cooking school experience with Monica and her staff. She has a wonderful setup for the class with hands on teaching and the variety of flavors were fabulous. Authentic and delicious!

“Fresh good food, fun cooking class”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

We had breakfast here a few different times - all were good, tasty with handmade tortillas. Loved the spinach omelette.

I also attended Monica's hands-on cooking class, which was a good value especially in comparison to other cooking classes around Mexico. The first part, at the market, was interesting as Monica explained some things about the market and bought various items for us to taste. She also shopped for ingredients for our class. On the way back, we stopped for a yummy taco at a stand on the street (which I went back to a couple of times!).

The classroom is outside and the stove has a mirror so it is easy to see. We made tortillas from the corn we grounded, and then enjoyed a tasty lunch. It was relaxed and friendly - a very nice way to spend a few hours in Zihuatanejo.

“Cooking school”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

We had a great time with Monica and the other participants! We went to the farmers market and then prepared some salsa and corn tortilla. Monica was very good at preparing and explaining. She's a great cook and made it look so easy! We would recommend taking the time to change the pace and experience something fun and new!!
