One can usually tell that a restaurant in an historic city center is good by whether any locals are eating there... Lu has a mixture of locals and tourists and we can see why. We were only there for breakfast (twice) but the service was excellent, the menu interesting and all the dishes were nicely presented and perfectly flavored.

We have eaten at Lu's several times but this was one of the best meals we had there. The food is creative, the plating eye pleasing and the service was good. I recommend Lu to anyone visiting the Centro historical of Morelia.

Must go! Not the typical Mexican food but delicious local Michoacán specialties! Special twist to the local dishes. Try the duet of chiles michoacanos, one was spicy and the other more like a sweet taste. Deliciooooso!

We enjoyed our visit to Lu, located on the ground floor of the Hotel Casino. The food was decent, and the service serviceable. We found the experience satisfactory, but not outstanding. Perhaps we expected too much given the outstanding Trip Advisor ratings. Not bad, but not one of the more special experiences we had on our visit to Morelia and... More

Since Tripadvisor normally gets it right we decided to give Lu a try. The hotel is conveniently located right across Morelia's main square on what is the bottom floor of the Hotel Casino. As previously commented, there are both interior and patio seating options available. Sitting outside is a great option to take in the beautiful views this city has... More

This slightly more expensive option among the cafes in the plaza colonnades serves dishes that are thoughtful presentations of local ingredients in novel ways, like salad with candied hibiscus flowers and Michoacan-style tamales with three sauces, as well as a variety of meat, poultry and trout dishes. As with all such places, the atmosphere includes strolling musicians of varying quality,... More

Food here is great, the restaurant has bot indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor seating is great for people watching, but if you're looking for a little quieter atmosphere try the inside.

I had read really good reviews of this place and so I already knew I was going to eat here. I struggled to find the name of the restaurant at first: the tables outside are right in front of the Hotel Casino, so I recommend keeping this in mind when you look for this restaurant too. I asked the waiter... More

After walking downtown this was a great place to have a meal. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the location is just fantastic. With musicians playing music and at the portales in Centro Historico.

If you ask anyone where to eat, they will say LU. The best steak I have had in Mexico. My wife had the sampler and it could have fed us all. Across the street from the cathedral and a must for your visit.
