“Delicious fresh fish, well prepared”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

The atmosphere is fantastic! It's an old hacienda type stone building with lots of character.
The owner and his family greeted us at the door and sat us in a very old world, comfortable room in view of baskets full of fresh mangos.

All the fresh fish of the day are brought to the table for your selection. I ordered the red snapper which was perfectly and lightly done both times I've visited. The price varies, so be sure to as for the market price.
Complimentary appetizers were delivered by the youngest son, probably 8 yrs. old and completely professional. He wore his white jacket and black pants and carried a white, crisp towel to good effect. I asked for a received a meatless appetizer.
For dessert and a great treat, ask for the fresh fig and nut ice cream, which is not listed on the menu, and is house made. The clientele was mixed Americans & Mexicans and was not loud on either visit. Nice bar with all mixed drinks.
Very nice service. After our meal we were brought into the kitchen to meet the owner's wife and other cooks...We speak spanish, so this likely helped.
Now open in new location for dinner Friday, Sat. & Sun. and Sun. lunch.
Call first for a reservation.
Most cab drivers know where it is and they will call you a cab when you are finished.

“lots of fun !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Tacos Don Felix is a special family restaurant, a bit out of Centro but worth the taxi ride. Do make a reservation as they are very busy on the Thursday to Sunday nights they are open. Food is good, large portions - either share or prepare to "para llevar".

“Disappointing experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

first BE WARNED - they do not take credit cards (last night in town, down to last few pesos, but they took us$)

Everyone raved and this came highly recommended. If you want a traditional american experience surrounded by americans with american sized portions - you may really like this place. It was not what i expected as it was billed as "family restaurant by a guy who used to run a taco truck" - I expected a quaint inexpensive experience. Not what I got. Certainly huge portions (which I don't prefer), but on the expensive side for SMA. One in our party had an inedible gristly rib eye. To their credit they removed it from the bill. Service was a bit patronizing, but perhaps it's what they think americans expect. Save the taxi ride a go elsewhere.

“Lots of hype and lots of noise with friendly service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We were walking down Hernandez Macias and someone handed us a coupon for free drinks!
When we took a look at it, we realized it was a restaurant that was highly recommended on TA so off we went in a taxi! They didn't seem to have our reservation and the place was jammed but they magically produced a table and some huge magaritas (which they ended up charging us for so I'm not sure what the coupon was all about) We all had tacos ...in honor of the name of the place! Although we inquired first about the degree of "heat", we all felt they were too spicey for us. That's not necessarily a bad thing for everyone - just a tip ! The main issue I think was the intense level of noise - I never knew so many gringos could be in one place at one time and they all were having a good time. It just didn't do it for me.....although the atmosphere is fun, I am not sure it lives up to the hype.

“delicious mexican meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I was happily surprised. excellent service by the owner, the food is soooooo good, just don´t expect to have "tacos" there. Mostly, now, the restaurant serves mexican dishes. Only 1 dish includes an array of 7 different "tacos". Prices are very reasonable.
