I will start with the positive things. The ambiance nice until elegant and well decorated. The staff I found to be welcoming, warm , generous and attentive. We were really positiv prepared of a delightful night. But now the negative side. Really all whats leaving the kitchen was a bit overcooked and without any taste and flavor. Perhaps they had...

Looking at previous reviews, it has all been said. The food, the ambiance, the attentive staff, the reasonable prices - all spot-on.. We were very fortunate. We had intended to dine at another restaurant nearby on a Sunday evening. Upon arriving at the other restaurant, we learned that they were closed for the the night. OK, back to our TripAdvisor...

Arrived early before a concert and we were the only ones there. Asked about the paella dish and they were out. Settled on tuna steak and spouse had chicken pasta with a parmesan sauce. Both the chicken and fish were overcooked, although the sauce was good on both dishes. Service also very lacking despite being the only customer's. Disappointed...

Tucked away on a side street, just a few doors down from Diego Rivera's birthplace, and removed from the boisterous happenings of El Jardin Union, I found this to be the most enjoyable restaurant I visited in Guanajuato. First and foremost, the atmosphere is peaceful, and the place has been furnished with great love and care. Their menu also has... More

Atmosphere good, service fine, our food very poor. Four of us have been doing the top restaurants in Guanajuato and this one does not deserve to be considered among the best. one of our group is a restaurant owner and she couldn't believe how the Mediterranean salad was presented.The salad came with huge, unmanageable pieces of lettuce with a very...

Alberto Guada is the owner of this restaurant, and we contacted him in advance to make a reservation for our first night in Guanajuato. We met him after our meal as we were leaving, and he was giving recommendations and advice for our next day. We definitely felt very welcome and cared for, thanks to Alberto! We sampled the Cuitlacoche,... More

Alberto was a fantastic host. Not only did we have a great dinner he gave us recommendations on breakfast and dinner locations the next day. He also gave us great advice on the city, and when he saw us on the street the next day he waved out his car window and asked us how we were doing. We highly... More
