“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

We went to Apunto in the central district of Guanajuato this evening. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and highly recommend this restaurant. The grilled octopus was tasty and salad was good. The chicken and ravioli were nicely done, too. The jicama dessert was delicious.

“One of Guanajuato's best”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

My wife and I had a delightful dinner at A Punto last night. We were charmed immediately by the tasteful ambience of the restaurant. The menu offered several interesting choices centered primarily around a Spanish theme. My wife chose a fish dish and I had a chicken dish. We also ordered a caprese salad. I was particularly pleased to see the restaurant's wine list which offered a range of good quality wines, including several Rioja wines that promised to pair well with our dinner.

Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. And because our Spanish language ability is limited, we appreciated his ability to translate menu items that we were struggling with. Each of our courses was beautifully presented and inventive in composition. For example, my chicken was accompanied by an interesting vegetable side that looked to be shaved pieces of squash that had been flash fried. Very nice.

The food was the best we have had so far in Guanajuato. At the same time, to be fair, it fell somewhat short of five stars in terms of the richness of flavors delivered.

When you go to A Punto be sure to spend some time looking around the Casa Cuarto building that houses the restaurant along with shops, an art gallery, and another restaurant, El Midi. There is also a roof top terrace that offers a thrilling view of the city and starry sky, and provides a great way to conclude a great dinner experience.

We are looking forward to our next visit to A Punto and will enthusiastically recommend it to our friends for a great dinner experience in Guanajuato.

“So glad to find this place!!!!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

I hope this is the first of a new generation of restaurants in Guanajuato, healthy and cosmopolitan food. The concept of the place is very nice, with a small bazaar with vintage and new artifacts, good taste, good service and a very chic decoration.
