I love this restaurant. This is the third year I've eaten here in my trips to Tonala. It is visually pleasing, it is near hotels and food and service is excellent.

It food was very good and we enjoyed the setting. I have the Taco soup and certainly found it tasty and everyone else said the same thing. the prices were good and the staff helpful even smiling at our attempts to communicate. It was a relaxed pleasant atmosphere in the middle of chaos.

We ordered a Molcajete: delicious, really good, and with a beautiful presentation. Really good chilaquiles and chiles en nogada. Its open everyday from 8am to 10pm Monday to Sunday. Excellent service and everything homemade.

Staff is excellent, attentive, friendly. We both had arrechera steak with a mushroom cheese sauce, baked potato, and veggies. Very flavorful. For lunch the nect day we had chicken enchiladas that were served with fresh lettuce, tomato, cream and the house special red sauce. They were great snd the serving sizes are huge.

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch while we were in town for the Sunday Tonala Market. It is located just several blocks away. This restaurant serves good Mexican food in a garden setting with attentive service. It hit the spot and was the fuel we needed to head back to the Tonala market afterwards for some more shopping.

Shared some apps. and had the molcajete. The food was very good, service not outstanding but nothing to complain about. For sure it is worth checking this place out while in GDL

Rincon del Sol is just a few blocks from the Hacienda del Sol Hotel and in the middle of everything. The food is great and the margaritas fabulous. The typical Mexican dishes are superb,while the service fast and efficient. We had comida and returned latter that evening for drinks.

Fun Mexican restaurant, last here in 2014 and had good food - marg's - service. Came back here on "Valentines Day" and it was full of "Amore" The owner was singing to his family while a very good guitarist played his heart out. Service was great, marg's were very good.
