“Disgraceful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Went here for New years eve and had one of the worst meals I have ever had the displeasure of paying for. The cold but sweet walnut soup was a lowlight, it will take some time to forget. I think it was only slightly out done by the manager's atrocious attitude by far one of the most pompous and pretentious person I have ever met. Stay well clear, much better food to be had elsewhere believe me.

“A Splendid Thanksgiving”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

We spent Thanksgiving week in Guanajuato and after scouting restaurants (and trying many) selected La Capellina for our afternoon T-Day treat. And it was just that - my wife had a very flavorful salmon filet and I had the local specialty, enchildas mineras. Both were artfully plated and were delicious. Service was good, and we enjoyed the outdoor, street seating..

“Pretty on the outside without the food to back it up”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

I was really disappointed. This place has a great location - just a few steps from Teatro Juarez - and wonderful decor that screams upscale. But the food was disappointing. I asked for their more popular starters - the grilled portabello mushroom on polenta, and the shrimp tacos in chipotle sauce - and their most popular mains - the filet duo and the grilled tuna - and among the four, the most interesting was the grilled mushroom with polenta. I was really disappointed given the staff tried their best, but in the end, the restaurant was just a shell - beautiful and great location, but no substance to back it up.

“Much better than the Jardin restaurants and very close.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We ate here twice once inside and once outside. Great salads! Arrachera steak was excellent. Great presentations, the dish with the mariscos is a sight to behold and delicious.
