Food is delicious and unique. This is not the customary Mexican restaurant with Tex-Mex food. The flavors are very delightfully well prepared, with southern and central Mexico dishes that are hard to find in the U.S. They have a good selection of tequilas and the...More

We we're in Austin for a buddy's wedding & this was the reception location, in the upper room. It was beautiful!! Loved the privacy & the balcony to look out over the city streets. Food was delicious! Lots of GF & Vegan options 😁

during a vast walking tour we opted to stop for tex-mex, we were very happy with our selection before we tally down yet another street in Austin. Would definitely go back and enjoy another meal.

Enjoyed 2nd visit to La Condesa immensely. Fantastic margaritas and delicious modern Mexican food. The ceviche was outstanding and the portions were the right size (some reviews say too small - we thought they were perfect). Carne asada and guacamole were great too.

Came back again based upon how good my meal was 18 months ago. Disappointed this time sadly. No burger on the menu, so I had carnita tacos and fish ceviche. The carnita tacos ok, with an odd strong citrus taste. The ceviche darn good. Passable...More
