We were so disappointed. We really did plan on drinking and singing but instead we received average margaritas and HORRIBLE service. No service really. $315 pesos for 3 margaritas. I guess their blenders were jacked up because we had huge chucks of ice in our frozen margaritas. This was the only place that we did NOT leave a tip. Waiter... More

Went there yesterday for lunch and we sat for 25 minutes before somebody gives us the menu. There was 6 tables on the entire restaurant, with 3 waiters and a manager who were all mastering the art of ignoring customers. We had to wait another 25 minutes for an average guacamole, the drinks were way too small for the price.... More

If you like nightlife, this is a spot you can't miss, good drinks and excellent mexican music, the food is also good. Recommendation: reserve before go or will wait like 30 minutes to get in.

We went there for lunch; surprisingly, the restaurant was almost empty (we hope that dinner time is different), ordering pork and tenderloin as main coarse); they were very good, although the waiter told us that everything was pre-cooked, and that no variations were posible to order. Less tan 500 MXN, not bad, but we had hoped to enjoy awarmer lunch,... More

This is the best place to come listen to mariachi in mexico. Historic bar. This is where all of the famous mariachi singers came to sing and can be seen in movies. Hire a mariachi per song. Enjoy a bit of history while sitting at the bar. Enjoy a meal. Arrive early to avoid lots of crowds and competing mariachi... More

Food is so-so but you can have a great "tequila" time if you go with a big group of friends. "Toques" (electrical discharges) is a must activity when you come here!

This place is fun and entertaining, the food is a nice variety of Mexican options. Great place to go with friends. Once your senses get used to the noise and parafernalia, you get to enjoy it very much

Garibaldi is a fun place. Yes, it's near a bad area of town, but the square is well-lit with lots of people enjoying the mariachi's and the festive atmosphere. Tenampa is probably the oldest, largest restaurant so we decided to give it a try. We were seated immediately and the interior is classic Mexico with great decorations and murals. Lot's... More
