Macaws Bistro is situated in the Casa de Leyendas B&B and is definitely a draw for all the snow birds that live in that end of town as my wife and I were the only non-retirees in the place when we visited on a Friday morning. The restaurant was about the busiest we were in all week and unfortunately the one waitress on duty was scrambling to keep up. We waited quite a while before getting menus, then water, then our order taken, then our food, our bill... My wife went with the CDL Breakfast Tortilla and I went with the Breakfast Club which were both reasonably priced at $65MX, but pretty small portions. They resembled the kind of portions you'd see on a senior's menu at most American restaurants which may or may not be coincidental given the average clientele. The food itself was average and seemed pretty Americanized in flavour. The location is really nice and the B&B looked lovely but the restaurant itself just wasn't that exceptional for us.

We went on a Sunday for brunch and as far as we could tell everyone there was either American or Canadian. These were not tourists like us because everyone seemed to know everyone else and the wait staff except us.
I ordered the Eggs Benedict with Canadian bacon and it was wonderful.
However my wife is much pickier and just ordered a plain bacon omelet and toast. They totally messed up the order and brought her a shrimp omelet with Pico de Gallo and some refried beans. She couldn't even stand to smell it so they redid her order and at least got the omelet right and with toast instead of tortillas.
All in all we probably won't be going back there.

Macaws is in historic old downtown Mexico, just off the Plaza Machado. It is a bed and breakfast as well as a restaurant. It is beautifully decorated and it makes a lovely brunch stop in the morning or a great place to eat a light meal and listen to music in the evening.

My fiancée and I came here one afternoon when it was pouring down rain. We sat and had lunch and drinks to wait out the rain and it was really nice. We came back one night later in the week to watch a band and have a beer and the place was filled with Americans and Canadians, who all knew each other. It made the atmosphere a little different, but the music was still great and the beers were still cheap!
