This place (if you can find it open) is both the business and home of the owner. According to him, the business is just to help him gather funds in order to completely renovate the house.

This was a great place but I have not seen it open for a while. It's too bad because it's a beautiful place. My review was done but trip advisor wanted a minimum of 100 words so now I'm filling space.

This restaurant is in an elegant mansion near El Centro. It needs restoration, but it has lots of frescos, a courtyard, fountain, antiques, intimate corners, sculptures and lots of greenery. It has a limited menu but the food is inexpensive and well-prepared. It was built by the brother of Porfirio Diaz (Mexico's President for 30 years until the Revolution in... More
