My first of many trips to Mitla's was in about 1942, so I'm prejudiced. Each tortilla is made by hand and served warm. The food is fantastic, and the service manages to keep up with the crowds without reservations. The decor is unpretentious, but with...More

Had always been a great place for great authentic Mexican food, but lately they have lost their touch, running out of food, not offering good service, forgetting orders, just terrible experience, so disappointed, might have to wait a long time, before trying again.

This is a lively restaurant and although it's on a tourist trail, it's full of locals too. Service was friendly and fast, and the food was really enjoyable: great value, filling and tasty. The menu had a decent selection of dishes including daily lunch specials,...More
