Description: Hotel Juaninos' La Azotea Restaurant is famed for its dazzeling close-up views of the cathedral, amazing by day and magnificently illuminated at night. In a stylish setting of modern decor, the atmosphere is casual and service is welcoming and caring. La Azotea Restaurant specializes in contemporary Mexican gastronomy with a fusion of Michoacan's own regional cuisine. Our menu of the day presents culinary delights that evoke nostalgia because they are based on precious traditional recipes of our ancestors. There is an extensive selection of Mexican and imported wines. A private dining room seating up to 20 persons is available for special events such as weddings or business meetings. The restaurant is open from 8 am to 11 pm daily.

While we were in Morelia and surrounding small towns for the Day of the Dead festivals we had lunch twice at the Azotea restaurant at this upscale boutique hotel. (We stayed in the Mision Catedral hotel but Los Juaninos hotel looked really nice.) The first lunch was October 31 and the service and food were great. We had lechon (suckling pig) and mestizo soup. The second lunch was on November 2 and the staff were a little slow after the holiday (just a comment not a criticism) -- we were happy they were there at all. Food was again very good -- I had the Morelia chicken enchilada and my husband had the tongue Veracruz. The dining space is on a rooftop balcony with an oblique view of the main plaza and outside or indoor seating. They do breakfast, lunch and dinner. The decor is quite elegant although a little sterile, but we were able to get seated there easily as opposed to places like Lu or others at ground level on the plaza that were slammed. I particularly recommend the suckling pig at Azotea.

Nice view, good food, subpar staff. I was dining alone and definitely felt that way due to the staff's inattentiveness. Could be a 5 star with improvements.

We enjoyed a special celebratory dinner at La Azotea. The views are fantastic, we arrived just in time for sunset while having cocktails prior to being seated overlooking the floodlit cathedral. The menu is pretty much standard "international" fare, but nicely presented and as others have pointed out, not cheap, but well worth it for the whole experience which for us was memorable.

We have been to this restaurant some years ago, and we came back because it is a nice place, with a great view and food.
Unfortunately, this time, even though the food tasted great, 3 people (out of 4) got sick during the night (we had dinner).
If it wouldn't be for this matter, this restaurant would get a 5.

I went to catch the illumination of the Cathedral 8:45 p.m. or so. The view is great, but most of the outdoor seats are somewhat obstructed by the trees in the plaza. We had wine, taquitos, desserts, and coffee----it started to get pretty chilly, so a sweater or shawl is a good idea. Everything we ordered + the vibe were good.
