Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 September 2018

Went with a large group (16 people) and had lunch. Service was very good, and attentive, and they were very accommodating with about 14 separate checks - an amazing thing most Mexican restaurants will do.The food was good, not great, not surprising, it is a self-describe restaurante tourista familiar. As an example, my queso fundido was ok, but not hot enough, no drippy cheese, etc. Just warm.

There was a singer who was very good, and interestingly had his own menu with songs, and the price duly noted - a good approach since as it so often happens, performers appear unbidden, and you feel pressured to tip them, and often don't know quite what to give. Anyway, I liked this approach.

I will say the the ambient is great, the decor, the music and the folkloric dances are excellent, I give then 4 stars just for it but they need to work on the quality of the food and the service. I do understand that it was on Sunday afternoon and that it was a little crowded but the service was a no - no....

A restaurant with very delicious mexican food. Live music is available. The location is very nice and the and big. On the upper floor is a bar with balconys an a view on the street. Cocktails are house made and service is very quick. I really liked the mixed meat plate with different meat and dipa and salsas.

Service slightly below average. Food ok. Located in the heart of Guadalajara. Visual ambiance is nice but the blaring speakers blasting out the latest soccer game prohibited casual conversation. Find another without the big screens.
