Casa Ofelia is conveniently located around the corner from the Basilica. We were seated and waited on immediately. Decor was bright, cheery. So far this is the only place we have found Bohemia beer. The chile relleno is served with rice and beans, all excellent, no leftovers. The enchiladas tricolores, a plate of enchiladas with 3 very different sauces, was... More

Central location, very good service, good Mexican food, reasonable prices. It was very peaceful, but the atmosphere was bright and colorful. Not exceptional, but certainly more than simp adequate.

I have been to Casa Ofelia multiple times. Each time has been a great experience. The decoration and music provide a wonderful calm and relaxing ambiance. There are many options from American style breakfast to traditional Mexican favorites. Don't miss out on the Guacamole or the Casa Ofelia Margarita. They're the best in town!

Colorful furniture, quieter than the neighboring restaurant. Food average, some days better.. Liveliest on Sundays.

On our first night in Guanajuato we headed here, based on the good reviews. I was surprised to see no one in the restaurant. The interior is very pleasant and we were immediately greeted by a friendly waiter. Our margaritas were tasty. We ordered the enchiladas mineras and it was okay. There was nothing wrong with it, but nothing special... More

After reading the Tripadvisor reviews I was expecting much better food and service. We even tried it twice hoping our second experience would be better, but no such luck. The food is just okay but you can find local street vendors doing better.

Casa Ofelia is right next to my hotel, and I wasn't in the mood to wander the streets looking at menus, (Wandering the streets in Guanajuato can be daunting since it's streets are a serpentine labyrinth of narrow alleyways that twist and turn like black holes in space). I was happy to sit down to something simple and homemade after... More

Charming owner/manager Pedro Ruiz greets guests and oversees the impeccable service. Casa Ofelia offers all of the plates tipicos of the area, but I was also pleased to find Ensalada Arroz, a delicious light meal in the middle of the day.

This is the best traditional Mexican food in Guananjato. The City is not well regarded for the cuisine- sure there are some great "haute" cuisine Mexican places, with "haute " prices to match, but, nothing knocks your socks off. This place is clean, pleasant, tasty and attractive. Their enchiladas verde is the best in town.
