The service and food were excellent at Lu. There was noise from the street, and a rock guitar player next door, and miriachi bands playing for other tables. Also there are may venors and beggars on the sidewalk,

Great location across from the Cathedral. Sit outside and watch the passer-bys and listen to mostly good music by the buskers, who are mainly students at the nearby and prestigious music conservancy. Have the trout! Yum!

Loved this restaurant! The quality of the food is just great, and portions are more than enough. For a very decent price, you get gourmet cuisine. Mexican ingredients and traditional dishes revisited. I would definitely recommend trying it out!

Great location on the square. You can eat outside, under the arches, where musicians stop to play music. Try everything! I was there March 2015.

As others have said, this restaurant has an imaginative menu for its location right on the main drag near the cathedral. Others in the area are much more mundane. On a Saturday night it was busy and the only option as to eat outside. It's in a hotel, and we were not told why we couldn't eat inside: maybe there... More

I ate there with my wife and my daughter for dinner. i had a trout with local herbs; arguably the best trout that I ever had ! Period. Everything else was of good taste; one of the best Margherita I enjoyed in Mexico. Service was good. Very good Mexican wines as well...surprisingly enough.

We loved this place for the special food. I would not call it haute cuisine as mentioned, but it really is something special and different then the classic Mexican kitchen. We had really good taco's with tuna, great ceviche and a nice salad. The 3 course menu was also a good deal. Some main dishes for children as well (ours... More

Michoacán Purépecha cuisine is designated as Heritage to the world by UNESCO. And Lu is a great example to understand why! Chef Lucero is bold and daring, mixing tradicional with the innovative: Jícamas with hibiscus flowers to create superb enchiladas without tortillas. A must try. We also tried the Pescado Blanco ceviche and finished with avocado ice cream with a... More
