Everything indicates this restaurant changed ownership. In their attempt to make a more "sophisticated" menu instead of leaning towards a traditional local one they have failed completely. Everything yes, EVERYTHING we ordered was bad... period. Either overcooked, microwave heated or cold. The sauces were very...More

We stopped here twice for coffee & desserts. Both were excellent and in a good area of Guanajuato for walking & shopping.

Our first time visiting Guanajuato with several disappointing meals out, we were thrilled to find this little restaurant. There were five of us--half had breakfast and half had lunch (the miner's enchiladas) and we were all very happy with our meals. Everything was fresh, super-flavorful...More

My family and I visit Guanajuato regularly. This place was always one of our favorite stops. Unfortunately, the qualitty has dropped significantly. Food is average at best. Our former favorite dishes are no longer available. We will not be going back. Try someplace else

El abue? This is the worst restaurant I have ever eaten in. The tables were dirty, the service incredibly slow. And my dinner was terrible, flavorless,unless you like dishwater. Do not even consider going here. No Abue for you.

We usually avoid inside dining when there's so many outdoor patios to choose from but we are very glad we decided to try this recommended restaurant. It's rare in Mexico to get a great salad that blends the best of Mexico and the US. The...More
