This was our second visit to Cafe Flores. Our first was wonderful with great service and excellent food. Perhaps it was because they were closing for the next few weeks and the restaurant was packed that things didn't seem up to the previous standard. We ordered the bottle of cabernet sauvignon (250 pesos) and were presented with a tempranillo that is selling at the local tienda for 39 pesos! Another bottle was quickly produced but, again, one we have seen in the store for 80 pesos and not the one on the menu. Quite the mark up for Mexico where normally, in our experience anyway, it's nominal at best. So, we passed on the bottle and just had the house red.
We opted for the prime rib which was on special. We were never asked by our waiter how we wanted it done so, I assumed it would be cooked to what most people order (medium rare). My partner was thrilled to see his arrive "blue", but I was quite turned off by this cold raw slab of meat on my plate and even more annoyed when the people next to us were given a choice of how they wanted it cooked. No one asked if the dinner was okay and I gave up trying to flag down a waiter as my guy was done his dinner. So, we had it packaged to go (he and the dogs will have it for lunch). Just about then Mary happened by and I showed her my unappetizing meal. She offered to grill it for me ( I thought this was roast beef, not a steak) several times, but that was all she was prepared to do. I would have thought a fresh piece done to my taste would have been a better solution! The calamari steak was fabulous!
