Lovely bar in the historic centre of San Luis Potosí. We tried an amazing range of local craft beers as recommended by our very knowledgable waiter Martin. He spoke excellent English and was very patient with us practicing our (very limited) Spanish! Didn't try the food but the menu had a great range of Mexican & European dishes, including a... More

We ate here 4 times we found the food to be so good, Didn't have a single miss and their artisan beer was excellent. Great choice for lunch or dinner if you can get in as it is very popular

Wonderful drinks and food, service sub-par. Came here with my boyfriend around 11:30PM on a Thursday night of Semana Santa (Holy Week) and the staff seemed to be unprepared to receive so many customers. Waited about 5 minutes for my table, sat down and waited for 15 minutes until my boyfriend finally got frustrated and flagged a running waiter down... More

I friend of mine in SLP suggested that we had drinks and dinner at La Oruga y La Cebada. It is a popular place with live music the Friday night we visited. They also have a rooftop patio with views to the Temple of St. Francis of Assisi, try to get seats over there.

Place is quite small but nice (if you appreciate the old looking style you can only find downtown SLP). Food is good, we only tried some entrees but they were really good. Beers are OK, they don't have a huge variety of options but you'll be able to have a good time and relax with the menu as is. Service... More

I took out our company's customer service team to this absolutely fun place. Great food, great beers and great service from the lovely, Anai. Located in the charming historical center near the cathedral, it offers heated rooftop seating and live acoustic music. Great for parties, couples, business and pleasure.

This restaurant has an original history, that wraps you up as soon as you enter. It is ideal for a meal and spend some time with friends and family. There are some afternoons were they play live music and offer a variety of beers. The pizza is one of the main dishes. Good service. Nice environment. Located at 50 meters... More

I have visited this place a lot of times, with friends, family, business partners, etc. The environment is relaxed, food is not pretentious at all, and there is live music on Thursdays and Fridays (to my knowledge). Food is great, specially pizzas and tortas. Chistorra al vino tinto is a must have. The wine list is short, but its compensated... More
