The food was way too salty and greasy. I don't understand why is was full of people. A jar of fruit water was $120 pesos, what a joke. My husband's salad was oily and his fish was lacking flavor.

It was hard to choose our meals since many things on the menu sounded good. My son had the fideo seco, my bf the pozole blanco and I had a spinach salad with pear and goat cheese. Everything was delicious! The pozole had a lot of meat and the pear in my salad had been marinated in jamaica. The waiter... More

If you want to try good food with great service don't miss this place. Start with an order of "gorditas" or "sopes", then try any of the "chiles" one of them is a combination of the traditional recipe plus a touch of new, like the filling with pears.

Located in the quaint town of Malinalco, site of an Aztec pyramid. I would rate this restaurant as a 5 star for its food, service and atmosphere. The open kitchen concept and relaxed atmosphere add to the culinary experience!
