Refused to serve my friends and I mineral waters stating it was 'food only'. Certainly will not be returning when we actually want food. After 7 years in Mexico this has to be the rudest experience I have encountered spend your money elsewhere!

The menu is Mexican based. The food is acceptable but the place is ONLY worth if you sit outside. I found it to be a bit dirty. My recommendation is to go with the sample platter or some mexican specialty. Menu is acceptable. Food is good bit as I mentioned. sit outside and enjoy the view. Wine selection is poor... More

Since this Restaurant is located in one of the most visited parks in Guanajuato, you will enjoy your meals in a Cosmopolitan environment and sometimes there is live music at the "kiosko" where local musicians play for free for all the visitors. Food is well served and it is prepared as it looks in the menu. Chicken soup, salads and... More

I stayed near the square here, and was looking for a place to sit and relax and sample some food and drinks. The menu had an extensive variety, and the restaurant looked crowded, so that was a good sign. I agree with others, the service was slow, thankfully I was in no rush and I had drinks while waiting. Food... More

My recommendation is to avoid this place. First off the good stuff: Me and a friend each had the tortilla soup and the caldo tlalpeño and both were great, although the caldo tlalpeño is way too hot, even for mexicans. Now for the bad stuff: Everything else. Dirty and uncared location, the inside of the restaurant is ugly and the... More

Slow service... Food just ok. Futbol on the big screen a plus while we waited. Drummer Guy with attitude wouldn't leave us alone... ended up about 6-7 feet from our table... Had to yell to place order....When we finally asked him if he would play elsewhere he started yelling at us, demanding money in exchange for his relocation... sheesh -... More

Very fun place with great service and nice outdoor seating. They had several strategically located televisions and we enjoyed watching fútbol while we ate.

service was slow, we ordered Aztec soup, which had very green (hard) and bitter avocado, and Tlalpeño which lacked a lot of flavor. The turkey ham sandwich seemed to have old limp lettuce... Music was ok, but the mariachis (extremely loud) from the next place up made for a very chaotic noisy unpleasant meal. I'm sure the other places in... More

One of the four dishes in our group was acceptable, the others were not. Service is slow. It has a great location, which is what it is banking on. If it were off the beaten path it wouldn't survive.

We went in and immediately we were sat on the outside tables. There was mariachi and other groups of music playing inside. We had a great time, Staff was very good.
