Located in an upscale area of restaurants with valet parking. Mid range prices as compared to us restaurants. Good Tequila and mezcal selection. Great meats. The handmade, at your table, guacamole is delicious! May have live music on certain evenings. Good service. Nice decor.

For around 35 bucks you can get the best food in Leon, that's it! 5/5! BTW the angus beef is just heavenly!

The taste was average, a little bit price specially when the food is average. Is a good place to try something different like crickets, but that is the only upside. Is easy to get to the place. We got some tequila and they present it as they wanted not as requested.

Great food, great service, outstanding ambiance. Being that I had not been in Leon for over 15 years, I entrusted my first meal to a good friend of mine and local to the region. I was not disappointed at all. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Bikinas and Argentalia are simply great restaurants! They know how to do it well. Service and food are extremely well prepared. Ask for the Botanitas with chinclolines (crickets) and also ask for the Salsa prepared at your table ! Congrats... And Francisco, our waitress were the best !!!

Awesome traditional and creative Mexican dishes, top desserts, and good service staff will make this a great dining experience if you don't mind the smoke blowing into the restaurant. We always sit in the back, as close as possible to the bar.

Went at lunch time on a Monday, but there were only a fistful of tables. We were welcomed and led to our table where we were greeted by the waiters in turn, who were polite and friendly all the time. Service was friendly and very attentive at all times. I wonder if this might occur on a busy day or... More

Visited La Bikina for my fiancée's reunion with her old workmates. The waiters were absolutely useless and could not answer any questions about the food or drinks on offer (even though all the ordering was done in Spanish by locals). The seafood was coated with far too much batter and saturated in oil. The tequila was good - Centenario Azul.

You can try a shot of mexcal with "Alacran" or with "Gusano de Maguey" (worm) to really have the "full" mexican experience
