My husband and I had been wanting to try this restaurant ever since we first saw it and I wish we had made a point of coming there sooner. What a great find! With the music, creative decor and delicious, authentic Cuban food, you could think you're in a restaurant in Havana. Although the special set menu (at $180 pesos/person) seemed very tempting, neither of us were hungry enough for all of that, so we chose to split a plantain soup, with rolls that were brought to the table, followed by Ropa Vieja (the chicken version). We enjoyed the soup with the rolls and the Ropa Vieja was truly wonderful! The entrée also came with a fried plantain strip and rice and beans. The beans, by the way, seasoned with the chef's special sofrito recipe, were the best we've had anywhere in Mexico. For dessert we had the cream cheese mousse with a blackberry sauce. Yum! In spite of the fact that we split everything, we were completely satisfied and the next time we'll go hungrier so we can try more of the menu. We'd also like to try their breakfast sometime!

We had the set menu and boy was it good. For only 180 pesos including a delicious mojito it cannot be beat. We stumbled across the restaurant only by accident but glad we did. We had more great food than we could eat and certainly did not go away hungry. A restaurant not to be missed in Morelia!

Whether you order from the menu or take the $180 paquete, La Plazuela del Bosque is clearly the best value for your money in Morelia. High quality, attentive waitstaff, relaxing decor -- it measures up each time I've been there. Many Morelia restaurants have a real problem with consistency, but this isn't one of them.The owners have created a culture of consistent high quality here, and their attention shows.

This is a very good Cuban reataurant located across from a beautiful plaza in Morelia. Cuban cuisine is authentic as the chef/owner is from good old Havana. Portions are well served and drinks are well prepared. I recommend this place to those who would like to taste for the first time or remember Cuban food. Mojitos and Daikiris for only 40 pesos sound tempting, don't they? This place is open from 9:00 am to 10:30 pm.

My favorite is lunch time at La Plaza dl Bosque because of the relaxing atmosphere and service. The wait staff is very attentive and pleasant. The food is fantastic. If you want a variety of Cuban food, order their special (especially if you are hungry) which gives you a variety of appetizers, entrees and deserts for a very resonable price.

Have had lunch there several times - always a great experience.
