We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant. My capreese salad was very flavorful. My husband had the cowboy steak that was good. My mojito cocktail was exceptionally good.

I, like others below, it seems, was tricked into coming here by glowing TripAdvisor ratings. Trouble is, on closer inspection many of the favourable ratings are rather elderly. Something seems to have gone astray with TripAdvisor's algorithm here - I probably walked past 7 better places to eat on my way here, never mind the rest of Guanajuato.

I will say on the positive side to kick things off, that the waiter was fantastic and the service incredibly friendly. The spicy salsa that came with the bread had a kick and was actually the highlight of the meal.

My starter was a tapas plate that qas not what I was expecting at all - sort of a grilled cheese sandwich with tapanade, some meat and pesto on top. Not amazing but not unpleasant though. Sadly the accompanying wine was mediocre if I'm being generous. Then, the main course was a total disaster. Somewhat against my better judgement, I ordered steak and prawns which came with a pasta side, and some seasonal vegetables. The pasta turned out to bs lukewarm - I was the only customer here so clearly the only explanation for this is that it was reheated (badly) and not cooked fresh. This is unacceptable. I sent the plate back but had it returned in essentially identical condition a few minutes later. Suffice to say I did not eat the pasta. Meat was cooked OK. The side dish of vegetables was horribly overseasoned and far too salty.

The waiter was incredibly apologetic and offered a free dessert or drink but I was done at this point. Instead they took 50% off the price of the main course which was an appreciated gesture but really didn't undo what was not a nice meal in any way, save the service.

I went and had dessert elsewhere to cheer myself up. There are lots of great restaurants in Guanajuato, but this isn't one.

Guanajuato is a special city which combines an authentic Spanish style. This city offers thousand of activities that anybody can enjoy. One of this activities that I totally recommend is coming to "La taberna de Diego y Frida". I think is the best restaurant of Guanajuato. You can order either international food. Also, the restaurant is characterized for preparing Mexican cuisine. When I visited, this lovely restaurant, I had the chance of ordering a delicious grilled octopus with stir vegetables. My first option was a Mediterranean pasta is called "Mar de los recuerdos". Furthermore, I ordered, two generous meat dishes which were cowboy steak and sirloin steak. At the end, I suggest ordering the dessert called, dark chocolate cake which had smooth Mexican cocoa flavor. Also, if you are fan of drinking a good cup of wine you should ask for the wine that the restaurant offers. The service is completely well the restaurant staff speaks Spanish and English.

If I have another opportunity come to Guadalajara I don't doubt visiting "La taberna de Diego y Frida"
