“Consistently excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

I have never written a restaurant review: taste in food is much too subjective.

But I make an exception for Erlum because of the excellence of all the externals (setting, linen napkins, friendliness of staff, owners, and chef). I have been there almost a dozen times and always bring friends/other tourists with me as the best restaurant in Queretaro (and they all agree).

I could list the dishes I have liked (almost all of them but my tastes are likely idiosyncratic) but the breads and soups do stand out.

And English is spoken (if that matters.)

Erlum is my "local" (as in pub). You'll love it without breaking the bank.

“Great little find in centro historico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Wanting somewhere to eat that wasn't the usual tacos and melted cheese dishes, we found this resto on TA. And only 4 blocks from our hotel. A great find. Here is a chef who creates dishes from local fresh ingredients, bakes his own (delicious) bread and makes his dishes from scratch. Ambience is okay but quality of food and its presentation is exceptionally high for this price range. Wine is a bit overpriced but the innovative aguas (I had cucumber and lemon) were delicious. Small (French sized) portions but the lunch time menu was brilliant. Would love to go again tomorrow!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

During my recent stay in Queretaro, I went to Erlum twice and was not disappointed either time. The setting is lovely and Violetta, owner and hostess, is most welcoming and makes sure you are happy (she even remembered my name on the second visit!). My first visit was during the week for lunch and I had one of their 3 specials--lovely salad with the freshest greens and veggies, homemade pasta that was cooked perfectly, and a small cake-like thing. And very reasonably priced. My second visit was for Sunday lunch and I ordered the crab cake appetizer and a fresh cucumber salad. Again, all fresh and beautifully prepared. Sundays apparently, there isn't the choice of a special.

Love this place and will return!

“Farm fresh feast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

This place is a gem. In fact the portions are very reasonable and not feast-like, which I prefer. The salads were remarkable. The specials were excellent. The people were great. Everything served there is local, fresh and organic. Really spectacular. Don't miss it!

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

With its cosy patio a great place for a long night out with regional cheeses and wine or pizza. Everything homemade, even mustard and catsup.
