I have been to this place many times over the years. It's located in a lovely setting just off the highway and has a lot of character. The traditional Mexican food is superb.

Excellent place, great service. The restaurant is an old hacienda overlooking the lake. Typical Mexican food including from chapulines, worms, soups to nicely cooked meat. Plain and simple, a must.

I stopped here with some colleagues one lunchtime whilst on a business trip to Toluca and thoroughly enjoyed the lunch. We were the only ones there as we arrived quite early but the service was excellent as was the food and Tequila. It was a little tricky to find the restaurant within the Hacienda but it's well worth the search.

The restaurant specializes in mexican food, it is tasty and the view is great. But the restaurant is tricky to find inside the facilities and the service... well, what can I say. You can wait and wait and wait and the waiter just does not arrive to your table. If you have plenty of time and you are not hungry... More

This truly is a place to go for a special occasion. The hacienda overlooks the valley -and the floor-to-ceiling windows take advantage of this. We had a large group and enjoyed a mixture of traditional Mexican starters that were all excellent. As was the tequilla. The service was impeccable, friendly enough but more professional and business-like. I had traditional arrachera... More
