It's a nice, classy place with pretty good service, but it's simply overpriced for its standards. For these prices, you simply have to be exquisite, which this place was not. The water in the swimming pool looked dirty, for one, and the food selections were limited and did not taste as delectable as it was presented (except for that yummy guacamole dip)!

The food was well prepared and tasty, but you're paying inflated prices for what are essentially a mixture of starters. They call them tapas, but that's just an image, please don't go here expecting to find a "proper" tapas bar because it that's not what it is. It's not really a restaurant either, as the conventional two or three courses aren't really on offer. It's more of a fancy botanas and drinks vibe. Fine if that's what you're after I suppose but just don't go expecting to find something different.

Sadly they lost a whole point for the valet parking, which came in at 65 pesos. What a joke. For the prices they charge inside, it should really be a courtesy, and the regular rate elsewhere would be 20 pesos. Park in Sanborns as an alternative.

I might go back one day if I was in the mode for the specific vibe this place offers. They're used to be a few places like this in Cuernavaca, then they closed down after Cuernavaca became less popular because of the violence, and now this place has opened up and captured that market again.

Great location and a perfect place to spend a nice dinner (rooms at the hotel are available). The best time to go is at night so you can enjoy the candle lights around the gardens and an extremely nice shoot of the Cathedral light up in the right side of the restaurant.
Perfect service, we were in a group of 15 people and they had several options for us.
I will definitely will come back soon.
