“Delicious, beautiful, light, healthy... and almost ridiculously inexpensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Our two meals here during our week in Gaunajuato were delicious, beautiful, light, and healthy... and almost ridiculously inexpensive. I wish there was a Los Campos in my hometown. Chris, the co-owner (with his lovely Mexican wife, who helps him coddle customers in the dining room), is a Canadian working incredibly hard to make his customers feel welcome both in his restaurant and in Gaunajuato in general. I overheard him discussing the disinfectant drops they use to make sure all their greens and vegetables are safe for tender stomachs with a pair of customers, and he actually offered to walk down the street to a nearby Tienda to buy them some. They were too ashamed to take him up on the offer, probably something like I felt pondering the tiny sum on our bill after dinner. To visit Guanajuato (which I would recommend highly, except that the number of foreign visitors is about right now, so no sense encouraging an overabundance, if you catch my drift) without trying Los Campos would be a silly mistake you don't want to make. One drawback: they haven't found the magic route through the city bureaucracy to obtain a license to sell alcohol yet, so you'll need to do without or get creative. Personally, I think an occassional meal without alcohol is a good practice, but that's up to you. If that's a deal breaker, please don't show up at Los Campos and complain that you couldn't get a glass of wine. You've been forewarned. Anyway, that situation might change before you get there. Good luck, and have a great time.

“Number 1 for a good reason”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Thank you reviewers for bringing Los Campos to the top in Guanajuato! How absolutely refreshing to find a great restaurant in this fabulous city. Mediocre food abounds there! Los Campos offers a wonderful menu, a beautiful setting and great service. I won't go into specifics on the beverage menu, it is best to speak to the staff about that when you arrive. They will do their best to make sure you are not disappointed.
We did have dinner there 2 of the 3 nights that we were in Guanajuato because there were so many delightful choices on the menu. None of them disappointed. Guacamole with a twist, lovely salads, burritos 3 hermanas....just go and enjoy! You can make a reservation through their website.

“Yum!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by our B and B owner... and we're very glad to have found it! The food was delicious and beautifully presented...the burrito that my husband had was served in a unique manner and was very tasty...my chicken/potato/olive dish was also great. Prices were very reasonable and service friendly. Go there!!

“A "Go-to" Spot in GTO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

We have gone to Los Campos many times over an extended visit to Guanajuato and it has become our "go-to" restaurant. The Menu del Dia is such a bargain! Three courses plus a fruit drink for 700 pesos. The food is always interesting, well prepared and presented and has a vegetarian option as well as a meat choice every day.

We have had delicious pies and a creamy rice pudding for dessert and one of our favorites was a vegetarian burger with"fries". The bread from Siskiyou bakery, a bakery who does things very differently from the other bakeries in town, (and which now has a outlet next door) is a tasty accompaniment.The menu is also interesting and everything we have had from it is also delicious.

The environment is pleasant, the view out to all the activity on Alonso, simple elegance, and service terrific. No liquor license yet but it is coming as soon as the government offices issue the permit.

Mykul183, Owner at Los Campos Restaurante, responded to this review, March 3, 2014
Thanks for the great review! We truly appreciate your comments and repeat business. As we are still a new restaurant both of these things mean a great deal.

I do have to offer one correction, our Menu del Dia is priced at 70 pesos not 700. I did not want to have any potential clientele scared off by what appeared to be the most expensive lunch in Gto.

Thanks again!

Wife and I had a great meal and nice conversation with the Canadian owner and his wife. I had the beef and she had the pork. Finished it off with the rice cream dessert.
