This restaurant was amazing. We did spring a nice Mexican cabernet, and it was very good. My favorite dish was a potato asparagus soup. Highly recommend it!

We stumbled upon this lovely restaurant by accident, but made sure we visited again a few days later. Beautiful place, with lovely service. It's nice to eat here as some of the locals will also be there enjoying a beer and dinner. The BEST NACHOS ever! It's definitely worth visiting this little gem.

It was a Wednesday night and a friend who lives in the next pueblo suggested we go for dinner as his friend was playing guitar and performing. The new owners have hit he mark with the best margaritas we've had here in Mexico. They don't measure the tequila as two of them felt like four. The service and food was... More

This informal open air diner was found on trip advisor and was truly a find. The cocktails were delicious as well as every dish ordered. We had a Caesar salad, shrimp quesadilla, an assortment of tacos and the pork dish. Highly recommended.

Very cute restaurant in the center of this small, non-touristy town. Excellent traditional Mexican food, and great value.

We enjoyed good food and live music on one of the nights we were there. Simple, fresh, inexpensive... a nice way to get a meal and we got to see our oldest daughter dance a bit of Salsa.

This place is amazing!!! Carlos, and his wife Najeely (forgive me if I spelled wrong) and the rest of the family, make you want to come back again and again. Always welcome and friendly. We had coconut shrimp, and wings, ceasar salad, margaritas, mechelada, chelada, and of course the cervesa, all so delicious. And very reasonable.

Killer Margaritas, old guy playing classic rock and roll (Wednesday nights) everybody having a good time, sometimes getting up to dance, good, very fresh, simply prepared food, served with nicely cooked vegetables. What's not to like?
