We were there for a weekend dinner and our experience was way different than the many excellent reviews for La Veladora. The al fresco dining experience adjacent to the well-kept garden was a plus. It creates a nice atmosphere. Too, the food presentation was a plus, they've obviously put some thought into that. The food, however, did not meet the... More

We stayed several nights at Casa Fernanda Hotel during a wedding weekend. We were too tired to go out to lunch the first day and dined on the hotel grounds at this restaurant. The food is beautiful and creative. There are heart healthy, vegeterian and meat dishes. We enjoyed drinks and appetizers - especially the tuna appetizer and the shrimp... More

We were sent here by the owners of La Gartija Mezcal Club and oh, what a great place! Dining is in a nice outdoor setting, but the food is what's so outstanding. We went here twice and the first night had a delicious pork rib dish with a dark mole sauce. Along with this we had the duck carnitas, which... More

I have never seen presentations like this place does. The superb servers keep changing things up and providing good food in a unique manner. I did not like the entree I chose, smoked Tuna and shrimp on skewers but my husband loved it. I had his soup so it all worked out. My food was served with a hot rock... More

Delicious food, excellent service. Mojitos are a must. It's a delicious option after a good massage at Rosie Spa, which is right across the restaurant. The portions are good and the food seasoning it's tops notch.

Having escaped the craziness that is Mexico City and checked into the hotel, we decided on the restaurant for dinner for Super Bowl Sunday. Somewhat unusual menu that may take some getting used to? The presentation, the service and the atmosphere were quite enjoyable. I would have to state the same for the breakfasts that we also had. One morning... More

Great options and attentive people. Really like the alternative for not leaving Fernanda's Hotel. Pricy, so you have to bring your wallet.
