I've been here for lunch twice now and it has been excellent. Excellent service and they seem to sincerely care that you are you enjoying. Take time to explain the different steaks. We tried Mochomos for dinner and I wish we had just gone back to La Calesa again for dinner. A typical example of don't judge the book by... More

We were driving past and I made mention that there is the famous La Calesa. So, a few hours later we were taken for a surprise meal. I believe the problem for us is that we don't have lunch as our main meal of the day. Being taken for a steak at 1pm is not really how we eat and... More

The food is average but the cost is to high, looks nice and the service is good but they has lost a lot of ground vs the new restaurants in town.

What a very elegant - extreme wonderful experience. The service is amazing. They make their guess feel very special. You'd need to look long and hard for comparable USA restaurant. The website shows the pictures. Now just image the best food and service possible on earth. One should not miss this experience you'll be talking about for a while.

Nice place but far from the hotels area in the city, close to down town. this place used to be the reference for good steak cuts in Chihuahua. Good for business meals if you want to try some tradicional food from Chihuahua.

really a classic place, service is outstanding, I would expect a little more from the food. The place was absolute empty at dinner time.

It is the best known upper scale restaurant by the locals and probably the oldest, so it is a very traditional place for business and celebrations of all kinds. The menu is mostly regional, specialized in steaks, but there is a decent variety of dishes and nice desserts. Service is good, but is sensibly better if you are a regular.... More

British style dining room. Great selection of US meat and very good wine to pair with. They have their own brand of house wine (La Calesa, a mixture of four vines among which shiraz) which is a must. Service, more tan correct, very friendly and helpful advice. Among popular local cuisine try Chilacas (melted cow milk cheese with cooked Anaheim... More

This place was overpriced, the coffee was cold, and the food was subpar. There are so many delicious places to eat in Mexico, please do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Even a taco stand would be tastier.
