always a great option if you are in the mood for typical mexican food and not willing to look for somewhere else or going to Tepoztlán....this is the place. Good food, special and basic flavors, nice prices in a simple and friendly place. Don´t forget to pay in cash always...

I've visited this place on 19 july of 2016, with all my family and childrens. Everyone of us get intoxicated from some food and we had a lot of trouble for two days with diarrhea and stomach pain and vomit. Beware! Stay away from this place!

I visited Mexico after several years (I spent summers here in my youth), and made a day trip to Cuernavaca, where we ate lunch at Los Colorines. What a welcome delight for my taste buds, at each and every item that was brought to the table! The guacamole was freshly made with perfectly ripe avocados, the salsa made with the... More

Frankly, I like the Colorines in Tepoztlan better than the one in Cuernavaca. The setting is lovely, very Mexican and all the dishes are classic Mexican recipes.

This restaurant is a great place for a reasonably priced and well prepared meal of traditional mexican food. The service was extremely pleasant.

A friend and I stopped for lunch and had a great time. The guacamole is served in the shell of the avocado. The chili relleno was excellent. The service was prompt and the prices were good, as well.

Very very mexican great taste, typical dishes, portions are generous, wifi, parking, clean. I have to say this again my Mexican friends found the food like been in their grandmama house, yes that good. Prices are around 15 USD per person in breakfast. The scene absolutely authentic. Solid 9.5

Los Colorines Cuernavaca is probably an offspring of a restaurant of the same name in Tepoztlan, but while the latter is decaying (mainly in service) the one in Cuernavaca has systematically improved quality, service and style without any crazy price jumps. It is now n a city of few good restaurants probably the best in quality-price ratio! Great huauzontles, sopa... More
