Billed as modern Mexican cuisine the food was exceptional. Try escamol (ant larvae) and mollejas de res (salivary gland, sweetbread). House Mezcal excellent also. Other choices for less adventurous palates. This is as fine of gourmet cuisine as can be found anywhere. It deserves recognition.

Absolutely scrumptious in a delightful atmosphere. Local, traditional dishes and flavors, artfully prepared and served. Top class; go here!

Just a block away from "tourist central" streets is an oasis of extraordinary beauty and exquisite cuisine. Enter and the single piece wooden banister demands a Wow! That is matched by the rich warmth of the wooden table tops. This is offset by the soothing grey stone walls. The unique soft lighting ties all together with a romantic bow. Some praise surely goes to whomever designed this restaurant.

On to the food. The fine chefs know how to prepare and present the phenomenal cuisine of southern Mexico and Yucatán. The pork pibil disolves in the mouth spiced perfectly with a burst of flavor and not a trace of grease. And oh are the purple corn tacos a taste treat. The myriad desserts are delicious, unique takes on standards like rice pudding. They become stored in the memory bank for future visits.

Did I mention the knowledgeable, friendly, competent staff? This restaurant will surely merit a placement among Querétaro's top 5 very soon. I hope this review has gotten the word out. Find your way here soon for a delightful culinary experience!

We took a group of 10 people here. Everyone was happy. The service could have been better since we were the only ones on the first floor. It was way too hot. Just about unbearably hot. The hibiscus tea was well made. Everyone was happy with there cocktails and the appetizers that we all shared.

The blend of flavors is like nothing I've ever experienced!

Luis Enrique, our chef, was complimented for his exquisite use of spices, fruit and chile!

Highly recommend.

The Tiradito was so good we ordered another!

Enjoy!
