Review of Real del Monte

Huh, just read Pierre's review and it's like there's an echo in here. The place is very funky and historical, very enjoyable ambience, but the kitchen is not up to that tome of a menu. Cut it back and do what you do, WELL! My (Oaxacan, read foodie) guy is very sensitive to badly reheated leftovers and was not pleased.

That said, I loved the sopa re requeson (ricotta soup), so you know someone is alive back there in the kitchen..

THAT said, this is also one of the very few places in Mineral (or Real, depending on who you talk to) del Monte where you can get a real cup of coffee in the morning! Cafe de olla--sweet, spiced Mexican coffee is on offer virtually everywhere of a morning, but if you ask for a plain ole cuppa coffee, they look at you like you're from another solar system. This restaurant is a huge exception, serving up excellent organic coffee from Veracruz, perfect with a toasted bolillo (Real/Mineral has excellent, crisp bolillos, though their sweet breads are so-so). Real Coffee places open their doors around 5pm, go figger.

Ditto, Pierre.

Generally good food, in a small town where expectations are low. Beware, however, of some of the items on the menu, such as the rabbit in agave leaves, which was prepared in advance and reheated, used parchment paper rather than agave leaves and was excessively dry. The four chile rabbit was marginally better, the chile stew helping it retain some moisture.Other items, such as the various soups and the enchiladas al minero were very good.Maybe the owner should concentrate on a menu with fewer items (it ran several pages!) and choose the ones he can truly master in the kitchen

Great restaurant in real del monte.
There are plenty of good food in town but for me, this is one of the best two restaurants you can find.
We went for breakfast (in real del monte breakfast starts at 9 or 9.30) and it was delicious. Ask for the enchiladas mineras or some typical dish and you won't regret it!
A little bit expensive in comparison with other local restaurants.
Don't miss it!

Regular food, maybe you could have a better breakfast meal at any restaurant chain in Mexico (Toks, Vips, etc.).
Really bad service, if not to say worst service ever received...
Employees (waiters & cashier) with pretty bad attitude.
I've even had to wait over 15 minutes for my check!
By the way, my party was the second party on a sunday morning.
Better try another option while in Real del Monte.
