Came here at the urging of a desk clerk at our hotel. Parking in this area is a bit of a struggle but with a little help, entirely possible. After you climb up the hill to the cathedral, this restaurant is located in the plaza high above the many silver shops. Climb what must be four flights of stairs to... More

As indicated in the past review, this restaurant offers a great menu variety with good and fresh food. Convenient prices and an "enjoyable" walk up the stairs from Taxco´s central plaza all the way up to the roof.

I have been at the restaurant twice within four months period. I liked the restaurant because of its location right in front of Santa Prisca. The view from the tables is superb!, The building is multistories , probably six to eigth floors, its doors connect the main square with a back ally. The place is clean and the food is... More

They have a very nice terrace and the menu offers several choices. The food is delicious and the price is fair. I had enchiladas de mole which were big and really tasty. I also recommend to try the 'queso cilantro' definitely a must try!

Top floor, great terrace, amazing views. Food was excellent - try fried cactus with spring onion, Mexican cured beef and fajitas! Milton (waiter) provided outstanding service and a really nice guy. Also collects foreign coins so if you have anything from home - take them with you!

The restaurant offers a very good overall "package" as you can taste some very nice Mexican food and drinks while relaxing yourself to the magnificent view of Santa Prisca Church, Taxco`s central park and a lot more! The menu offers a wide selection of domestic dishes and service is excellent.

We have eaten here several times over the years and it is a good place to eat mexican food. Our favorite was the curry chicken.
