“Interesting International Cuisine and great Mexican wines variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

I liked a lot the Menu with so much variety of Mexican wines and also the mixtures used in the cuisine to reflect a real international - fusion flavors.

They only need to improve the service since I had to serve myself the whole bottle of wine,

It is a little bit expensive even for the area. I don't see it as a "casual" restaurant, better for special occasions.

“Nice ambience, poor taste, bad cooks. Vallet parking thieves”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

The ambience in the restaurant is great, the food is a pity. Most of the ingredients are very good quality but the composition of the main dishes are very bad taste. The fish, crispy outside but raw in the middle. Everything is very salty, the cook thinks cream goes in every dish. shorts ribs with no flavor, just salt. Gnocchis with only a splash of cream, if pasta just add hot pepper and salt. Very far from a good restaurant, it lacks knowledge of food, probably inexperienced cooks with good wishes.
The good part: very nice service, kind and friendly. The ceviche, very good. But a restaurant can not live form ceviche
The worst experience: if you do not leave your car in the vallet parking, your autoparts will be stolen and for sure by the ones that didnt park your car. It is very suspicious because thieves know what cars are parked by the vallet and what cars don't. what does it mean? you know the answer. And as all thieves do, later they will assault. My recommendation: worth for a drink but please take a taxi and do not have dinner.

“Excellent restaurant in Guadalajara.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Friends recommended this restaurant and so 10 of us went for lunch today. There was valet parking, the service was attentive, the wine list was good and the food was terrific. Spiced and salted edamame and then an amuse bouche on a large spoon were great to start. Lovely oysters on the half shell, two of us had the roasted tomato soup and raved about it. I had the ceasar salad which was very tasty. Others loved the tuna tartare. Next time I'll try the duck confit spring rolls.
I had the duck confit lasagna and it was wonderful. Several others had fish and steak which they said was perfectly cooked. Nice sides of couscous, French fries, and bok choy. Next time I want to try the lobster ravioli. Desserts were great too - strawberry napoleon, creme brûlée, molten chocolate lava cake.... All delicious. Can't wait to go back again.

“Very good lobster tacos and tuna duo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2012

We had an excellent lunch experience today at Paralelo 28, it will be a nice addition to our repertoire in Guadalajara. The service was attentive, the owner himself recommended some excellent dishes, such as the lobster tacos and a wonderful seafood soup, and also some wonderful fresh oysters on the shell with a mezcal mignonette. The hamachi and tuna tartare duo was very good, the hamachi comes with a caramelized soy sauce that makes it unusual. They have a very interesting mexican wine list, and seafood is flown in fresh from Ensenada every week. I am definitely looking forward to go back and try more of their dishes on the menu, congratulations for the good work!
