This was a wonderful place to spend a relaxing evening. The food was very good, live music and the wait staff that present but not overbearing. Never felt rushed!

This was one of our favourite restaurants in the past few years, but it has lost some of its appeal due to a smaller menu, fewer choices and not so great food. The staff are wonderful and the kitchen copes pretty well, the ambiance is the best thing about the place with a lovely setting in an old Mexican home....... More

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.

The veggies were without any... More
