I think the only reason you should come to this restaurant is to have a view of the main plaza. Otherwise the restaurant is rather okayish- food was tasteless, presentation boring and prices high.

The food we wouldn't rave about but they had a fantastic musician there which at least made the night enjoyable and the staff were good.

Very bad service, they couldn't care less about customers, made us wait 20 min to tell us that no food was going to be served.

Have dinner here on a Saturday night, there were live music and the keyboard player was very good on engaging the costumers. Nice ambience! Food was well cooked and the service is good.

Seemed like it's a tourist spot. Food was expensive and not very food. Clean but experienced better options in town.

Very good food, excelent steaks and live Jazz music overlooking the main Tequisquiapan plaza. It was very romantic place. The proprietor, Vicky Elgea, ifluent in english is very demanding of her staff to ensure the food is properly served with goodservice. Unique dishes.

Indeed is a restaurant that gets your attention when you look at the big terrace that faces the main square of the town, or so it happened to me as it looks a bit different from the rest. It can be said it looks fancy, which can give the idea that the meals are as good as the place looks.... More

This place has a great view but only that! We had a grilled chicken breast and it was taste less, Margarita was so bad it was just sad, we ordered on the rocks and we got blended and after we sent it back it was just so bitter you could not drink it. The beer was warm and the tuna... More

Such a great setting overlooking the Plaza but they come up a bit short on a "Very Good" rating. Better preparation and presentation would move them into a solid rating. Our service was quite attentive and the beautiful evening made for a relaxing experience.
