I really believe that you cannot beat the breakfast at Lu; but while dinner is good, it is not excellent like breakfast... We felt dinner is just a bit limited. I see where other reviewers complained about street performers, etc., if this bothers you...eat inside...More

After reading all the reviews, we were definitely looking forward to dining here. The menu is certainly creative but the execution of it leaves a little to be desired. I had the four course tasting menu and did not opt for the wine pairing. Instead...More

We enjoyed a delicious lunch, their menu offers mostly typical dishes from Michoacan. Well priced, good location, very good food.

We have eaten at Lu's several times but this was one of the best meals we had there. The food is creative, the plating eye pleasing and the service was good. I recommend Lu to anyone visiting the Centro historical of Morelia.

Must go! Not the typical Mexican food but delicious local Michoacán specialties! Special twist to the local dishes. Try the duet of chiles michoacanos, one was spicy and the other more like a sweet taste. Deliciooooso!

We enjoyed our visit to Lu, located on the ground floor of the Hotel Casino. The food was decent, and the service serviceable. We found the experience satisfactory, but not outstanding. Perhaps we expected too much given the outstanding Trip Advisor ratings. Not bad, but...More

Since Tripadvisor normally gets it right we decided to give Lu a try. The hotel is conveniently located right across Morelia's main square on what is the bottom floor of the Hotel Casino. As previously commented, there are both interior and patio seating options available....More
