Very good food, excelent steaks and live Jazz music overlooking the main Tequisquiapan plaza. It was very romantic place. The proprietor, Vicky Elgea, ifluent in english is very demanding of her staff to ensure the food is properly served with goodservice. Unique dishes.

Indeed is a restaurant that gets your attention when you look at the big terrace that faces the main square of the town, or so it happened to me as it looks a bit different from the rest. It can be said it looks fancy, which can give the idea that the meals are as good as the place looks.... More

This place has a great view but only that! We had a grilled chicken breast and it was taste less, Margarita was so bad it was just sad, we ordered on the rocks and we got blended and after we sent it back it was just so bitter you could not drink it. The beer was warm and the tuna... More

Such a great setting overlooking the Plaza but they come up a bit short on a "Very Good" rating. Better preparation and presentation would move them into a solid rating. Our service was quite attentive and the beautiful evening made for a relaxing experience.

It's a good choice to have lunch or dinner and has a good view of the main plaza. There was live music on my visit and all the service was really quickly and kindly. The food is not amazing but good enough for the price of the menú. They don't accept Credit or Debit Card, only cash pay. .

An amazing view if the square, you're drawn in walking past and seeing the elevated deck. The menu looks good and the open grill in the corner smells great, however the food ended up just tasting average, we found much better flavors in the smaller little shops on the side streets

This restaurant has one of the best setting. It's sits upstairs on a lovely terrace overlooking the whole Plaza and if they were to fire their chef, their waiters, their manager, you would have the perfect setting for one of the" Rescue this place " show, on the Food Channel. I've never experienced a bad tasting tortilla since I come... More
