“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Loved the service and the food. My husband really liked the mole. It was in a good location near the city center, and easy to find. We were able to get a table without a reservation in late March.

“very good mexican specialities at reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

I have been several time to this place to eat and enjoy good mexican food and all of myforeign friends and family like very much the food here especialy mocajeta, fisch and meat, you have a plate combination of the tw, rather big portion for big eaters!!!. The prieces were kept reasonable for the quality, the only details who bother me was that you have to wait a while for the bill at the end... Eventually wil lbe to order the food and the bill at the same time. Hofully they will improve this point quickly.
the place is also very nice in a very tipical mexican patio, with birds in cages and nice indor scenario.

“poor service cold food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

We were expecting a memorable evening of dining, it didn't happen. The place was nearly empty so no excuse for the slow service. The margaritas were served in a martini glass , small. There were four of us dining and all our meals were disappointing. Most of the food was lukewarm at best. I sent mine back to be reheated and when it returned my veggie portion was not on the plate. I mentioned it to the waiter and he laughed. By the time that he returned with my warmed up veggies everything else was back to luke warm. This was probably the first time that we didn't tip the waiter.and he was upset about it. Nice setting for a restaurant but that's it.

“Great Lunch in Centro Historical Guadalajara”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Our American friends and us had a great lunch here. The location is central to Centro Historical. We had sopa, ensalada y mocajeta and would do so again. Service was efficient. Prices were reasonable. Atmosphere very Mexican. Give it a try.

“Dissapointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Terrible food! the name and description of the dish was appealing but the chicken lack salt( as in hospital food) and the sides(white rice and salad) were substandard. Next time please offer at least oil and vinegar for the salad.
