We stopped here after visiting museo de arte moderno. We only had the tuna tostadas on the appetizer menu and 2 cerveza sols. The service was good and the food was tasty. Beers we're cold too. Very good!

After a visit to Bellas Artes we stumbled upon Los Girasoles. We were seated upstairs overlooking the Museum of Art. We could hear an organ grinder outside which was very pleasant. The service was attentive and the food was modern Mexican. A nice surprise after...More
