Good dinner in quant Spot. Really enjoyed the chile rellenos. My wife loved the soup and my daughter enjoyed steak fajitas. The staff was great. Not a fan of the flan(overlooked).

A cute place just off the Jardin. The servers were very attentive and the food arrived hot. We had breakfast today and it came with a basket of fresh warm bread. It was reasonable and good! We will definitely go there again.

Wonderful traditional Mexican restaurant located across from the post office. The best tortilla soup in town. Service is always good and reasonably priced menu.

This restaurant has been around for a long time. Food is predictable, but tasty and plenty of it for a good price. Service is pleasant and appropriate. Ambience is OK - small and cosy.

Our hotel had an arrangement with this little restaurant and we were glad that they did! We trotted over there with our tickets each morning and were treated to a delicious meal and plenty of hot coffee. It was a real treat.

We went several times and the salads were amazing. Tried a cactus salad. New for us, as we never had cactus. Was great.

Had a very good breakfast here. Reasonable prices & good food & service. Not a tourist trap. Worth it for breakfast.

This is a restaurant which serves few gringos who seem to love places which are tailored for serving the expat population. El Correo has excellent food and wonderful service. it's a brief walk from the Jardin and when we were there we went to El Correo 3 times. Gets 4.5 stars in my book. It deserves to be reviewed on TripAdvisor.
