Although it's location is excellent for people watching and mariachi , this place must taste as one of the worst places for food and service ! . I live in Mexico and I was very surprised how bad the service was ,,, admittedly it was a holiday and busy but ,,,,

This is a very big patio with a lot of restaurants within in and a beautiful gazebo where regional dances are performed. The "cazuelas" are delicious, it's a typical Mexican drink made with Tequila, very refreshing. The only bad thing we experienced is credit cards are not accepted and one of us had to go find an ATM

The atmosphere is good and one-of-a-kind, something you can only find in Mexico. You get loudly (and endlessly) serenaded by mariachis while eating the food, which is adequate.

We went there with family (7) and the service started bad from the beginning. They brought out drinks in dirty bottles with supplying napkins for 40 minutes. The starters came with the main course and they were cold. We asked for service and the waiter displayed attitude. So walked away and just paid for lemonade the kids had. I come... More

The service was fairly good and when the waiters were told that they had brought frozen margaritas instead of the "on the rocks" we ordered they immediately tried to take the drinks back, but we declined. But the food offered was very lackluster and nothing special at all. The best feature is that you're relaxing right on the street with... More

Came here after work to try out some famous drinks the ambient is excellent and I was told weekends are even better. This zone is excellent to visit as it has tons of stores and gallerias. Drinks were very good and it's s recommended place.
