“A fun and excellent neighborhood restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

It's a little less than one year old, but we just found it. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood near Colonia Americana, Guadalajara, Chez Chouchou's young, creative and energetic staff surprised us with an unexpected menu and high quality. The small restaurant serves excellent appetizers, entrees, salads and desserts that are all unique and full of flavor....In fact, that is what makes them special. We're not gourmets, but we understand flavor and quality... you'll find both here. Service was excellent, and if it's important to you, English was spoken and prices were reasonable. If you're looking for something new and different and want to be pleasantly surprised, give it a try. Like us, you'll probably be coming back again.

“Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013 via mobile

This place, indeed, is a bistro not a restaurant. My general comment is that is good enough... the service is excellent, the ambient welcoming, the prices very reasonable (I wouldn't pay much more either) and the food is fine, tasty but I'll say outdated... the flavors make you think in 2001 and not 2013, I'm referring that the sauces and techniques felt out of this new era, and of course there are places that have Classic dishes but even those dishes evolve with the time.

“More Bistro Than Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

Have been three times now. Enjoy the casual environment, the hip atmosphere and the limited menu. Easy access in one of Guadalajara's prime dining zones. Good wines, fair prices, service can be attentive, hasn't always been. Many bilingual staff makes it easy if you are English speaking.

“Rare meals at a good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

It is fairly difficult to encounter french ingredients in Guadalajara.
Don't ask me how, but chez Couchou does it, and they sure know how to cook them as well !
A great place to enjoy a very good meal in a nice environment at a very well placed price. I would recommend it to anyone !

“Great Food and Great Prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

I have been trying to visit this restaurant for some time and this past weekend I was finally able to make that happen. It met all of my expectations and more. The atmosphere is very comfortable, the service is great and the food is wonderful. I was most shocked when I got the bill and for 4 cocktails, three appetizers and two main dishes we only paid around 500 pesos. I can't wait to go back and try more of the menu!
