this restuarant inside the Los Arcos hotel is a mainstay for me when in Taxco. the atmosphere is wonderful, the waiter Jesus always smiling and efficient, and the food always good. while you wait for your order treat yourself to the wonderful folk art from San Agustin Oopan (clay) and Otomi artisans (embroidery).

We are staying at hotel which includes this restaurant. Never enough waiters. Food satisfactory but not unique or outstanding. No white wine tonight! Modest cost.

We came here for breakfast & were quite impressed with the setting and overall experience. This is located in the Los Arcos hotel. The ambiance is top notch, the service sufficiently attentive, and the food quite good. We will definitely return!!!

A bit pricey for what the dishes are and considering their lack -or-remplacement of essential ingredients. Waiters were attentive though. Recommended for drinks while admiring the arquitecture downstairs!

The food is average on the low side, the waiter does his best. They have an AMEX sign at the door and they do NOT accept any credit cards nor they allow to sign it to the room as they are Los Arcos Hotel restaurant.

I had a lovely dinner here, but it was quite pricey for Taxco. The restaurant is gorgeous and I had to laugh as they had one of the only fountains in town that was actually working.

We stayed at the Hotel Los Arcos where Sotavento is located. It is a gorgeous part of a 500 year old ex-hacienda with archways and the Old World ambiance. We ate there frequently during our 7 day stay for breakfast and dinner. They make the best hotcakes I have ever eaten. We loved the Chilaquiles Reina and their service. Always... More
