We were 5 to take lunch. "Guacamole with chicharron" was really bad, seems you were chewing gum. Service is really slow for a place almost empty with more than 5 waiters.

You feel welcome you moment you step into a full bar and adjoining restaurant with gorgeous view of Calderon Theater. The menu is extensive and interesting for its local specialties. Prices are VERY reasonable for the food.The wine list is fair. My appetizer of "Asado de boda" was so copious I coulld not finish it. I will go back.

Right next to the cathedral this is an excellent choice. The big windows mean you can look outside at everything that is going on while you eat. We went in for a drink and ended up staying for dinner which was very nice.
