Wonderful food, reasonably priced in a great atmosphere. La India Bonita was the Cuernavacan lover of Maximilian, last emperor of Mexico.

I wish there was two ratings possible - one for the food and one for the service. We were the only ones in this restaurant for dinner on a Friday night from 6:00 to 8:30 pm. And it took that long to have dinner for two. I think you get better service when a restaurant is busier because the waiters... More

Beautiful outdoor dining courtyard, but the food was virtually inedible, the service thoughtless. I was only one of two tables in the place and yet I had to flag down the server twice. They so didn't care. Though I only ate half of one of the three quesadillas, the server didn't ask me why, he just picked up the plate... More

The story of the Restaurant, former villa, is reason enough to visit and imagine what transpired withing the walls of the delightfully restored structure. Courtyard dining wonderfully complimented by beautiful plantings, it is an oasis in an oft time busy city of dense traffic and bustle. The menu is not primarily "Indian" food, but regional dishes. My one meal taken,... More

Sitting in the old home of the US Ambassador and eating essentially the same food he would have found in Cuernavaca in the '30s, was a real nostalgia trip. The food is not spectacular but the service and setting are lovely.

Ate here two different times during a 2 week stay in Cuernavaca. The garden is really nice. We found the food to be very good. Make sure you try the guacamole with the chicharron chips. We also had the chile relleno and the arranchera steak. The appetizers they serve are very good. We found the service to be very good... More

We came for dinner on a Saturday night. The garden setting is lovely, it was not busy. We each had a different soup, and I had Chiles en Nogada for a main course. Food was satisfactory, nothing too memorable about it. Service was efficient, but not overly friendly. I would pick somewhere else if I was to return to Cuernavaca.... More
