Officially most overrated restaurant I've been to in Mexico. Salad overdressed and wilted, wrong entres common, huitlacoche pasta boring. Steaks received best rating.

The place is really cosy, they have a room full of Saint Antony statues and a book you can put your plea to him asking for a good husband or wife. Really funny to do that. The food is excellent but it is also pricy.

Great late night place to eat.. We went for dinner after a concert at Teatro Morelos. Love all the Mexican Artesania decor. Service was very good with attentive friendly wait staff. The food was excellent Mexican cuisine. We'll be back.

The ambience in the restaurant is very unique with a lot of nick-nack everywhere. The cosiest place is the San Antonio room. The meny is very limited but what we got was good. If this place will keep a good rating it has to seroiusly improve the service that was not up to standard. Ulf & Mette Toronto

Unless you request and get a table in the special upside down saint section, it's a long trek away from the city center. There are plenty of places in the the city center which offer similar food choices.
