This restaurant is inside a colorful mexican church. The setting is beautiful decorated and painted, it is a few steps from valenciana mine, has children area and wonderful panoramic view. Food is very tasteful. Not to be missed

The four of us went one evening early, as the restaurant posts their hours as only open until 8:00. We were the only ones in the restaurant and therefore had attentive service. However, they only offer beer and tequila, versus a selection of wines, which we expected at a restaurant open for dinner. The meals were a disappointment. We tried... More

Parece una capilla, la decoración muy agradable, fresco y libre de humo de cigarro (hay una parte externa, imagino que se puede fumar allá). La comida muy buena, no dejen de pedir el Chile Empanado, delicioso. El servicio bien, amables y con un toque casero. // Looks like a small chapel with a lovely decor, fresh and smoke free on...

When we asked a local for a restaurant recommendation, one of the better restaurants in Guanajuato, they were quick to name the Real. This turned our to be a perfect location for us too since we were staying in a timeshare just a little further north on the main road. Besides the beauty of the twinkling lights of Guanajuato far...

Fabulous food and service too. And the decor is so wonderful from the floors to the tables to the walls and ceilings. It looks like a church from the outside but it isn't although the flavors could be like a religious experience. The pickled appetizers were a pleasant surprise. And the little basket of candies at the end were a... More

We just had lunch here after visiting the Templo Valenciana. The service was very good, attentive and yet unobtrusive. The three of us each ordered the Crepes Florentine, Crepes Pollo Poblano and Paella Negra. Both crepe dishes were excellent, the crepes were thin and cooked just right. The Florentine was in a cheese sauce and the Poblano Sauce on the... More

Real de la Esperanza is set on the mountaintop in a magical setting with an unbelievable view of all of Guanajuato even the lake beyond the mountains. The restaurant looks like a little church, it has a charming outdoor seating area and also a very lovely indoor restaurant. The view alone is worth the trip, but the food happens to... More
