Had occassion to be at Tamuz last night for my husbands birthday. The food and service were excellent. I had the tortilla soup (pretty spicy) served with diced avocado, chica rones and cubed goat cheese (on the side). Followed that with the vegetariano plate which was a platter of humus, goat cheese, greek olives, tabule, tomato salad, dolmades and falafel (wish there had been more of those!) and the platter was excellent. I am from S. CA and have missed good middle eastern food. This platter is worth returning to Tamuz again.

My husband and friends each had a dish of the coconut shrimp and loved every bite (each shrimp was at least 3 bites big). One friend also had a plate of eggplant served with goat cheese and she didn't spend any time chatting since she was enjoying her dish so much.

The owner and head chef, is from Israel and the food was excellent. They even made the caesar salad at the table.

Service was excellent and they serve Mexican wines.

The restaurant used to be a private home and the balcony area upstairs is used for smokers. Live music is performed on weekends (a combo of guitar player and singer) and there is a lovely garden area to sit in and watch the illuminated water feature. Open lunch and dinner with valet parking. Reservations accepted and depending on the time you go most likely necessary.

Definately a place we would take out of town visitors.

Cost for two with wine (a glass for my husband) and tip was 700pecos - roughly $60.

What a great find! The setting is relaxing and beautiful, the food is thoughtfully prepared; the Caesar's Salad was hand made at table side slowly and thoughtfully. the fish was moist and properly undercooked (difficult to get it this way in Mexico generally), and the strudel for desert was both wonderful and a work of art. The owner made a point of visiting with the patrons, getting feedback and sharing his life experiences. Truly five star!

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to try Tamuz, despite our rule about going to "new" restaurants that have just opened. Most of the time, the experience never measures up to the hype of those that are experiencing some "new" and "different."

Tamuz was just that, "new" and "different" but not in a good way. The service was severely lacking and other diners within our earshot were complaining about the lack of service or the nonchalant attitude of the servers.

The restaurant was not that busy, yet we were forced to wait for 20 minutes to receive our first drinks to the table. Another 15 minutes before they took the order. We could certainly understand if the service staff had been bristling, but for the most part, they were standing around engaging in conversations with one another.

The menu was engaging and well written, a sure sign as seldom does the cuisine match the descriptions on the menu. A good copywriter can make Chipped Beef on Toast sound like a gourmet treat. Another sign was the fact that was noticed from the menu is that the restaurant has yet to decide exactly what type of food they want to serve - perhaps it is best to call it International - as there is a bit of everything for everybody on the menu. Personally, we prefer a restaurant that does one type of fare well than a dozen poorly. It is indeed difficult to be all things to everybody - as we found at Tamuz.

The decor is sparse and cold, like a McDonalds, with better seats. There is even a playground for children where they are left unattended only to run back for forth though the restaurant as you are attempting to enjoy your meal or conversation.

The food was - well - very much like the decor. Almost as sadly lacking in taste and temperature, perhaps from sittting on the serving shelf awaiting the servers to finish their latest tales of bravado from the night before party or what ever they were discussing.

Perhaps as the restaurant ages, the owner (who is not Mexican) will make the changes necessary to upgrade the ambiance and present a better experience in a city well-known for some very great, world-class dining experiences.

The menu proposed at Tamuz is quite interesting. Most dishes are well executed and the service is precise. It lacks the -wow- factor but is, definitely a good choice
