“Affordable Luxury!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our experience here started by the owner/chef explaining the days' menu to us and answering all of our questions. Its rare to find that kind of service to begin with, anywhere! The set menu includes the water of the day, soup, an entre, and dessert! Plus there is always a vegetarian option, which can be difficult to find at other restaurants. The meal was absolutely delicious, filing, and affordable. A real gem.

“What a magical place and delicious food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

If you'll come to Mexico City find a free time to go there...this beautiful place has special unique atmosphere. Even though the Parras street is very short it's a bit difficult to find it cause it's a really small place. The service is great, food absolutely delicious and I also cannot forget to mention that the kitchen is next to your tables so you can see the whole preparation of your meal. Fantastic place...pity it's open only 12:30 - 18:00...recommended!!!

“Increible! Highly recommend...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

What a deal! Discovered this little gem while staying at the charming, quaint and well-situated Stella B&B on Avenida Amsterdam. This adorable cozy restaurant is a 5 minute walk, and a reservation is recommended for lunch. The owner/chef took his time patiently explaining each menu item to us and its preparation...even though we understand enough spanish to read menus and order, he did it in English for us. We are going back today with family for one more lunch before heading back to San Miguel de Allende :-)

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

Quim is brilliant. It was hard to find this little spot, without any markings until the restaurant opens! We have eaten here a few times over a couple of years, and will continue to make it our "go to" spot for delicious food that combines local mexican ingredients with an international flare. The price can't be beat and the food is absolutely delicious.

“Always a great deal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This small and mostly outdoor bistro has a great " comida" to offer.
With a chef who understands that great food at reasonable prices makes for return customers La Rauxa may change its name but never its purpose.
Just doors down from the better known Rojo Bistro walk the extra few steps and enjoy whatever daily special is offered.
