“Truly great dining experience!”
Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

On the strength of other reviews, we came here to try the GTO brewed beer (great microbrew). The food was so good, we came back again, and then again...

Service is friendly and professional. The atmosphere is very calm, with jazz playing softly in the background. The casual menu has a selection of very filling sandwiches (served with salad and fries). The main tuna entree was wonderful and fresh. The filet with blue cheese was equally good (cooked as specified). On one occasion, we had a really nice 4 cheese fondue. Of the desserts we were able to sample, I strongly recommend both the chocolate cake and the crepe.

If we lived here or were staying longer, we would definite be regulars at this restaurant. Thanks for the great dining!

“Good Food”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

The long trip to Guanajuato is more than compensated for by the excellent food and service this family-owned business offers. Based off the owner's favorite recipes from interior Mexico, this restaurant is definitely worth going to. The only menu is in Spanish, but your waiter will gladly translate for you. The food is excellent, and comes at a fair price considering the quality of the food and service. I recommend any of the pastas or the cactus soup. The dessert is also excellent. I myself had a pasta, an appetizer consisting of small slices of bread with assorted toppings, and a salad with lettuce and cucumber, in addition to a small chocolate cake, all of which were excellent while also being different from what I normally eat. The ambience is nice, with paintings lining the walls and copious amounts of red and orange. Anyone visiting Guanajuato should definitely visit this restaurant.

“Nice place”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

A very nice atmosphere and extremely friendly owners. The food was good and the prices reasonable. I had the first soup (cactus with a name beginning with an x), the skirt steak (it was good but I should have chosen one of the others with a sauce) and the ice cream covered in cocoa powder--very good.

“Local Cuisine”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Very interesting menu! The owner/chef actually presented the menu to our party of 6 table side. His inspiration for offerings was a result of his family's favorite recipes from interior Mexico. Everything we ordered was excellent and a lesson in local foods.

We also enjoyed walking around the neighborhood as it's composed of older homes and businesses that have been lovingly restored to original grandeur.
