This restaurant is located within the courtyard of a 160-year-old Morrocan-style palace. I have rarely experienced a more tactile sense of history; and never so in a restaurant.
As stated by the previous reviewer, it is in desperate need of a renovation. But this is the very reason it feels like you've walked back in time when the house was alive with its original inhabitants. The main restaurant is located within what used to be the front courtyard of the house. The tables surround a pillar-rimmed pond with a fountain. Palm trees reach past the top floor from the garden at our feet. There are original murals by the mentor of Diego Rivera fading and peeling off the walls. I cannot overstate the visceral sense of history while dining here.
This is one of those rare gems that won't last because nothing this amazing ever does. I see that it is currently up for sale. If only I had 8 milion dollars, i would get it myself. If you only do one thing in Guadalajara; go here. The food is par, but I think of it as a museum where you can touch everything and have a pizza and a beer while you're doing it.
