I went here for lunch with a co-worker while taking a weekend exploration trip of Guanajuato. This restaurant has a massive menu, lots of options and different types of food. We split the arrechera, chicken and chorizo molcajete. All of the meat was very tasty but I thought it would be bigger. I was definitely full but could have eaten... More

No mariachi while we were there at 8pm on Monday. The music was SO bad. We're talking slow ballads. Started to feel depressed while I was there, thinking about my life back home without holidays and mariachi. Also the speaker was broken so the music kept stopping. You could not taste the tequila in the cocktail we ordered. The advertised... More

We've been here with friends to have a sandwich after a tour of the beautiful Guanajuato. Four of us received the food while the other three had to wait 45 mins to be informed by the waiter that they've run out of bread. I paid my beer and left, not professional at all.

We wanted to enjoy a late dinner in Guanajuato and Van Gogh was one of the only places that was still open at 11pm. After a very short wait, we got a table inside next to the window, and from there it was all going downhill. About 10 minutes after being seated, we were able to order our drinks and... More

We had the shrimp tacos and they were delicious. The main course was nothing special. They have a nice outside area to sit.

Refused to serve my friends and I mineral waters stating it was 'food only'. Certainly will not be returning when we actually want food. After 7 years in Mexico this has to be the rudest experience I have encountered spend your money elsewhere!

The menu is Mexican based. The food is acceptable but the place is ONLY worth if you sit outside. I found it to be a bit dirty. My recommendation is to go with the sample platter or some mexican specialty. Menu is acceptable. Food is good bit as I mentioned. sit outside and enjoy the view. Wine selection is poor... More

Since this Restaurant is located in one of the most visited parks in Guanajuato, you will enjoy your meals in a Cosmopolitan environment and sometimes there is live music at the "kiosko" where local musicians play for free for all the visitors. Food is well served and it is prepared as it looks in the menu. Chicken soup, salads and... More

I stayed near the square here, and was looking for a place to sit and relax and sample some food and drinks. The menu had an extensive variety, and the restaurant looked crowded, so that was a good sign. I agree with others, the service was slow, thankfully I was in no rush and I had drinks while waiting.
