“Simple but good reastaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013

It is a simple unpretentious restaurant but they serve good food. It is located at a 15 minute walk from downtown, just in front of Palacio del Gobierno, in La Presa area. They serve both Yucatán and local specialties, mainly meat. The quality of the food is very high. I went twice, once I had cecina (thin beef steak) and the other time cochinita pibil, a pork dish from Yucatán. Both were good. I also tried some of my friends' fajitas and arrachera steak, very good as well. Desserts are standard. They do not have an appreciable wine list, better rely on the good Mexican beers. Honest prices.

“Great quiet spot away from the centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2013

Beautiful place set in what looks like it was a house before. Fast service. The red pozole and the arrachera were delicious - the salsa they give you with corn chips and chicharron at the beginning might prove to be spicy for some. It was a nice little relaxing spot close to the state government offices and the hotel Maria Cristina - beautiful buildings in this area.

“Good food in an attractive space”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013

Mexico Lindo y Sabroso offers a wide variety of Mexican dishes that you won't find anywhere else in Guanajuato, but it falls just a bit short in authentic flavors which you'll find in other Mexican cities. Most of the dishes are very rich, and so it's not the kind of food you'd want to eat on a regular basis. Two of my favorite dishes were (before I stopped eating meat) cochinta pibil and chiles en nogada. They have a good breakfast menu. The location is about a 20 minute walk from the center, in an attractive part of the city. We usually go here for special occasions - birthdays, holidays, with visitors, etc. You can sit outdoors on the front porch, indoors in one of the brightly decorated rooms, or outside in the middle patio -- my favorite place in good weather.

“One of my favorite places”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012 via mobile

Lovely typical but nicer than average Mexican restaurant, with tables outside street side and in the lovely courtyard.
Good service, very good food, priced accordingly.
I love to eat there alone, peaceful and enjoyable.
Outside the center: has free parking, and right next to a park and the Presa de la Olla, a water reserve, so it's a convenient stop before or after a nice walk.

“Super Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2012

My wife and I loved this place. The pozole was superb. Word of caution: the salsa is very spicy. For dessert we had corn ice cream served in corn husk! Definitely a repeater.
