I had the sopa Azteca which was delicious - most of the ingredients come on a side plate, so you can make it to your own taste. Everything was fresh and delicious. The setting is nice, too - covered patio so its cool and breezy...More

We came here for lunch and had beef tip, the spinach salad with grapefruit and goat cheese and enchiladas. Everything was good just not as wow as any other restaurant we have been to so far. Service could have been a bit more personal.

Uphill from the Zocolo you enter a building which could be shops or businesses and there is an open, stone-floored patio, hacienda-style with tables and chairs. Yep...you got here. Menus are posted on chalk boards along the walls and it takes some time to study...More
