Loved the warm ambiance and personalized service here. They won't let you leave unsatisfied. The brochettes were amazing. Highly recommend. Fine dining experience with very reasonable prices.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Bistro de la Presa. My wife is vegan (and eats no meat, fish, or dairy). The chef, Domingo Martinez, was very willing to come talk to her about a variety of dishes he could prepare for her, things not on the menu that could be made with fresh vegetables he had on hand....

Bistro de la Presa is not in the centre on the town. It is a 20 to 30 minute walk out Paseo de la Presa just past the Govenor's Palace in a gracious European flavoured neighbourhood from the era of Porfirio Diaz. We ate at Bistro de la Presa five times during a recent month-long stay in Guanajuato. The menu... More

I have sampled some of the most notable restaurants in Guanajuato, and this by far is the best. My husband and I have been here a few times in the couple of weeks we've been in this city, and each dish is more delicious than the last. Highly recommended!

We walked up to la Presa from the central plaza (30 min), and it was very much worth the walk! The waitress showed us pictures on a screen that helped us make our food choices, but I don't think you can go wrong at this restaurant! We enjoyed the apple slices with sprinkles of spice that welcomed us as we... More

The reviews are accurate - this is an amazing find with a wide variety of foods to choose from. The gracious chef chatted with us and shared his recommendations for everything from the Mexican wine to soup and entrees. The complimentary sliced apples sprinkled with home grown rosemary, lime juice and pepper will awaken your taste buds. We then had... More

Felt like we poped to Paris for lunch. Spent the whole meal trying to pick the ingredients and failing. Asked and learned of some new ideas to try. As somone else posted in a review, this is a foodies place to go. First time I have had novel tastes in so long. Cant wait to come back. Soon.
