Ate here for breakfast a couple of times. The food was good, nothing over the top great. Service was iffy. It was not busy on either visit but we had to let the waitress know when our plates needed clearing etc. The coffee on both occasions was a disaster. It appears the waitress simply did not know how to make... More

We heard from friends how great this was, it's a very small place, quiet set back off the road. Very good food, the fish of the day was the best I've had, and shrimp where great also. Presentation was very nice as well. They have beer and wine. We tried the cornbread dessert, very good,!

We have eaten here for breakfast as well as many times for supper and every dish that we have ordered had been beautifully presented and very tasty. The refried beans are the best I've ever eaten!

From the moment we wandered across the street to check out a place we misread as "Arte" we were charmed. The owner greeted us and made sure we were welcomed. She beamed with pride while sharing her love for Mexican food, particularly from her region of Colima, and how happy she was with her all woman staff of chefs. It's... More

Went to this charming little restaurant based on reviews and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. We had an appetizer of sopas filled with cheese and poblano peppers in a lovely sauce, apparently a Colima specialty. Then the boys both had lightly seared tuna encrusted with black pepper in a delicious sauce. We would love the recipe! I... More

The food here is fabulous. We ate at this restaurant last year and loved it and tried it again this year. We ate here 3 times in a week, this year and the quality was as good as we can remember. They have great salads with very generous portions. The chicken enchiladas were also very good. Have always had a... More

After reading everyone's review, we were so excited to try this restaurant. The staff was very friendly. The appetizers were good. The 5 of us all were very unhappy with our dinners. The presentation was unique. The food was cold with no favor. We all had different entrees. Once again. Very disappointed

Located in the middle of the Las Brisas District (Bus #8 from Santiago, or Bus #5 from Downtown), this is a destination, even if you are not in the neighborhood. The place is quite small -- only 5 or 6 tables, making it quaint and decorated nicely. As others have said, the Owner/Proprietor has 4-years of Culinary School Training, and... More

We had the good fortune to dine at the ANTE Bistro Cafe tonight. It's location on Lazaro Cardenas is across from Best Western Hotel in Las Brisas. What a GEM! The organic tomato salad was infused with light vinagarette dressing & fresh cheese. My Menguiche soup consisted of a puree of tomato with soft cooked chiles. Our entree of Filet... More

I stopped in because the bus service on Las Brisas was almost non existent, and have been raving about the owners and the food since Marzo 2013. I had a wonderful salad and went back a few days later for some of their Colima family inspired bread pudding. Both meals were beyond any expectations I might have had, and on... More
