“Terrible Service.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

My husband and I decided to try Rescoldos based on the high TripAdvisor rating. We arrived and were told there were no tables available outside and that it would be more than an hour wait if we decided not to take a table inside. OK - we could live with that, cuz the food was supposed to be out of this,world, right? The waiter took forever to give our menus. He ignored us and gave menus to a table of four women who came in after us. He then sat a table of two outside. Wow! He brought us our menus, barely looking us on the eye, never smiled. We ordered a bottle of wine, which came to our table quickly. OK. But the big rub was us waiting for 30 minutes without our food order taken AT ALL. And it wasn't like we were tucked away In a corner. We were passed by at least a dozen times with staff taking care of people who came after us. Hmmm. So we left money on the table for our wine and walked out. Incredible.

We here at Rescoldos strive to give our best in service and in dining. We are very sorry that the night you came, you didn't receive that. We were very busy and don't know how you were over looked, a misunderstanding between our wait staff possibly must have had them a bit confused but that is no excuse. As far as the table of two going outside after you were told that there would be atleast an hour wait, they were the table that had a reservation for that time. We are again sorry for the service that you received and wish you had a chance to experience Rescoldos at it best!

“Yum! Great food, presentation, and ambience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

The Italian food at Rescoldos was impressive. I was speechless at first because I hardly expected to have good, much less outstanding Italian food in Mexico.

A local expat friend brought us there and I liked the courtyard seating we had by the fountain, but when I saw and tasted the food, my inner foodie awakened.


My only frustration was finding them to be closed on Sunday and Monday, two days I tried to return for dinner. And it was not the easiest place to walk to.

So, FYI, they are closed on Sunday and Monday, and take a cab there.

“Everything was Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

The food, the atmosphere, the couryard, the aroma from the wood fired oven - it was all great. Portions ample and then some. The other reviews capture it all. Ran out of toasted coconut ice cream before I could get any but i'll order it first next time.

“Delightful ambience and great hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great little restaurant run by a couple from British Columbia, Canada. Wonderful courtyard setting with trees, candles and a pretty fountain. Food was delicious, especially pizza cooked outside in a wood-fired oven.
