After a week first in Puerto Vallarta, had a hankering for something non Mexican so was recommended to this place by a friendly Starbucks manager who also happened to have studied cooking.
Located along the lovely Aquaduct on the top floor, the terrace overlooked the Aquaduct with overhead protection from direct sun which I can believe is appreciated if we arrived earlier. The staff was friendly and efficient seating us at our choice of tables. We were early so the restaurant was not busy which helped.
Ambiance was great with the view while the decor was zen calm.
My hometown has some good Asian cuisine (including Japanese, Cantonese, Szechewan, Thai, Malaysian, Korean, Taiwanese) so the bar is really high. My friends wanted the spring rolls, deep fried wonton and the deep fried prawns. All were presented well and not at all heavy or greasy. Tasty fillings for the two former while the latter were not overcooked.
For our mains, we had the bibimbap, pad thai, and a hearty soup with shrimp (camarones ) & glass noodles. While the bibimbap lacked Korean kimchi and the fried egg on top (using a spicy cucumber instead) it was flavourful and appreciated. The pad thai noodles were not as flat or long nor sweet as I'mentioned used to, the flavours were good . Finally the soup had good number of shrimps and noodles in a delicious broth.
While not totally true to my experience , I left very satisfied and highly recommend this for quality, presentation, ambiance & service.

It was a refreshing experience in Morelia.
The view of acueducto Av. (With the arcs of acueducto of course).
The food was great.
You have to try all their cocktails and delicious teas.
Impeccable service (that's a new in Morelia...).
The best of all: the neat, clean and well simple decorated place.

The owner itself go to check your order and asks from time to time if everything is going fine.

There's just a couple of things to improve:
a).- times to serve; you have to know that everything here its prepared from scratch, so if your hungry or in a hurry, this is probably not the best choice.
b).- I don't know if it's just me or what? But i thing there should be regulations to serve portions or at least print in menu quantities or something, it was a little pricy for small portions.

Aquiles has got to be the best restaurant in Morelia when it comes to Asian fusion. Every single thing that I have ordered has always been prepared and seasoned to perfection. My favorite dishes would have to be the rib eye steak salad (amazing homemade light dressing) and the pad Thai. They also serve a crazy orange water where they caramalize the orange peel, add it in the jar, and becomes edible. Don't forget to try the Panna Cotta desert, you will love it!

This was a nice discovery, we had a very pleasant lunch, the food was excellent and so the price and service. We tasted so many of the appetizers and Amin dishes. Really, it is worth trying!
