I decided upon a fine dining experience and this fit the bill very well. The hospitality is every bit as good as the tasteful food. Reasonably priced and a nice break from more traditional Mexican food.

If you're walking Xalapa downtown and looking for a nice and quiet place to eat, this is it. The owners are gentle and the food is something out of the ordinary.

About 9 years ago in xalapa, in the center of the city was sown the link of two cultures, but with the same vision; to restore fatigued stomachs ... Restaurant El Brou is a family place, small, accessible, modest and private. has an endless number of attributes. All this has been done by a great teamwork, both of our partners and owners of the restaurant and the affable diner; then to us and you. Thank you
