This place is a gem! Amazing food, great service, and a fun atmosphere. When we were there, they were playing an old movie (picture only) on the wall.

A story: During a visit in January, 2016, the final celebratory site was reserved for Xaltemba – a very cozy, open air restaurant, with delightful live music, excellent menu selection, attentive waiters and a great selection of wine. Upon arriving to the States, I realized my camera was missing. A quick communication with the manager reassured me they had it.... More

A couple of years ago, this was one of our favourite places to eat: The setting was beautiful, the attention to detail was wonderful, the service was terrific, and the food was tremendous! We went back a couple of nights ago after a two year break and couldn't believe the changes. The setting is still beautiful, but everything else is... More

linen covered and nicely set tables the best food we had in two weeks eating out and all for about 220 pesos, about $20 CDN. We had a full meal with starters and desert with sparkling water which was the same prices as Beer (about $1.25 CDN) a bottle of wine was a little more if you wanted it.

While we were here mainly for snacks, cold drinks, and to use their banos, the food was very good. Excellent ceviche and calamari and my favourite Mexican beer Pacifico.

We actually went to this restaurant 3 times within a 10 day period. Excellently prepared comida. Music with Scott West rated very highly with us. Seating within an open courtyard provided ambiance. Excellent staff and prompt service. I highly recommend this restaurant.

5 of us had Christmas night dinner at this 1st class eatery. Food and service were exceptional as was the decor. We enjoyed their Christmas turkey dinner with some excellent desserts and appetizers. This place is worth the visit if you are in the area.

Call for reservations. They are not open every night. These folks strive to be the best in town, with professional service in the fine interior or delightful, shaded patio. Enjoy table linens, sparkling glasses, nice cutlery, gentile attention. This is the place to go for a celebration meal, or just because you want to indulge in something different. Menu varies...
