Found this cute small restaurant close to my house. What a oasis in the city. It's all hidden behind the stone walls, but the moment you walk in you know you have found. Something special. The doors are locked, so you must enter from the hotel door, and there is a button to push the buzzer. I couldn't find the buzzer and ended up knocking. Inside there are beautiful paintings, a fountain, plants, ceramics, and lovely other decorations. The waiters were all very attentive and spoke English perfectly. In fact if I have one negative is that the place had only American/Canadian guests and I am trying to limit my exposure to English.
There was a nice selection of salads, entrees, and deserts. I am a vegetarian so I had a home made vegetable pasta. The pasta noodles were home made and the sauce was a lovely olive oil based sauce with herbs. The house red wine was excellent.
Also, there was an incredible woman playing guitar and singing. This was the best part of the meal. All of the patrons were really enjoying her music and when she left everyone gave her a tip.
When you finally get tired of corn tortillas and guacamole, this is the place to try. It was a refreshing break in my 6 weeks of travel and. Mexican cuisine every night. It's a nice blend of Italian and Mexican.
