“Superb regionally influenced Mexican cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

Maybe it helped that one of my fellow diners was well known to the chefs, but this was one of the tastiest, most competently served, most beautifully presented meals I have had in my five years of visiting Cuernavaca. Deep intense flavours with bright counter-notes. Soft luxurious textures and vivid colours. All of this was presented in an atmosphere of warmth and vitality. A warm and wonderful dining experience that I will return for next visit.

“THE place to go in Cuernavaca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We went to Casa Gabilondo last night with friends, and loved it. Great, attentive service and excellent food. We had cochinito pibil, dogfish quesadillas, huitlacoche lasagne, and lots more. Highly recommend.

“Definitely worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

We had lunch here on our last day in Cuernavaca. We were very impressed with both food and service. We ate a series of small dishes - the pickled marlin and ceviche of scallops were particularly nice. Menus in English. Great Bloody Mary's too!

“Classy place to eat by the cathedral”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

It's a quaint restaurant with an intimate feel due to the small semi-divided rooms. The food was very good, though not 5-star excellent, and it measured up to the presentation. The waitstaff were welcoming as well.
