Always been intrigued by this darling little restaurant tucked in a courtyard off the street. Actually have stopped by three different times on past trips. Must have always come early (they open for lunch at 1:00 or come by on a Tuesday, the one day a week they are closed). To my delight, they were open this time. Ordered the... More

I happened into this place one day to buy coffee beans, but noticed the great plates of food others were eating. We decided to return for lunch two days later. I ordered the Aztec soup, one of my favorites. My husband had a more hearty dish with tortillas. What I love about the restaurant is the decor for starters. Though... More

What a nice little place...I stopped here twice, once solo and once with friends. On the first visit, I enjoyed crepes and sat outside on their patio. The food was good and the price was very reasonable. On the second occasion, enjoyed a nice glass of wine. There are also tables inside. La Finestra is located close to the main... More

Having some local artwork (not rare in the region) this petit corner is full of light and peace. Food is good, local ingredients and good service make this a nice place to visit and stay for a glass of wine or a cup of coffee.

My husband and I stopped here mid afternoon today for a cappuccino and nutella crepes - you can't go wrong. They were great plus the atmosphere is very quaint and relaxing. We plan to return for a dinner during our stay here.

Lebanese food in Mexico, who knew. We were heading out and were a little late, but want to immediately. We stopped at this place and had the humus and egg plant dips along with the bread salad. Both were very good. A little too much of the lettuce but otherwise great. The humus dip was excellent, we will be back.

My wife and I stopped at La Finestra and sat outside to enjoy a wine. Our server was so nice, even though he was extremely busy...inside was very crowded. We didn't try the food, however we enjoyed the atmosphere. No complaints here.

I was disappointed with the pork special. Pastillo sauce was nothing special, and the pork was just thin shaved and, again nothing special. A bit of sliced zucchini helped, but the plain white rice and white bread added little. Seemed a bit overpriced, too. The Tempranillo wine was good and bargain priced however. Seemed family run. Very pleasant folks. But,... More

Only went once for an early dinner with friends, but the food was really good. The location and setting is nice, because it's tucked away off the street, so the noise of all the festival activity was drastically reduced, and allowed us to have a nice evening.
