La Mariposa was opened in 1940. It is a traditional restaurant where generations of Santiago de Queretaro families have enjoyed great meals. We loved the experience. It is basic, not fancy and tasty beyond measure. We took two Torta Durazno slices of pie home with...More

Slow paced... the place is stuck in the 70s, small portions of food with good quality. Prices are acceptable still you may need two main dishes to be ok. Recommend taking the "Mantecado Malteada" quite good. Juste be patient as they take their time.
