I recently had the opportunity to visit Morelia on business, which I often do. I usually have lunch or dinner in one of the many places you can find all around the central 'Plaza', by the Cathedral; they are in general quite average, good places to stop by and go on. Nothing to tell back at home. But what a wonderful surprise was awaiting this time! This Luna Oro is a recent opening downtown, located just steps from the main Ave. Madero, half a block away from Hotel de la Soledad, and has very particular features which I really loved. It occupies a beautiful old colonial building which has been masterly adapted by its owners, Silvia and Sergio, a very nice couple whom I had the opportunity to chat with for a while. No doubt they know their business! The restaurant is located in the central patio, where you can find a beautiful traditional fountain. And the food!! OMG, this is where you really notice the difference with the nearby places. It is very well presented, yet umpresumptiously, and with enough variety to suit every taste. I was in a visit for lunch, which was very good, so good in fact that I decided to return for dinner! No dissapointment at all!! These guys have someone in the kitchen who really knows his/her job. Beautifully appointed dishes, scrumptiously prepared, at very reasonable prices and in a lovely environment. What else can you ask for? Even if you're not in for a meal it is quite worthwhile to pay them a visit, since the coffee they prepare is to die for!
Of special interest is to mention there's a very unique library at the entrance, very well appointed as well, but what I really liked is that the restaurant is surrounded by, in the aisles and in the back, the most interesting variety of mexican folk art as well by beautiful garments (mainly from India is my guess).
This is all to say Luna Oro is kind of eclectic, yet with the particular touch of good taste not found very often, in Morelia or anywhere else.
I can't wait to go back on my next visit! I truly recommend it.
