Went to this restaurant on a recommendation to try the jicama tacos and we were not disappointed - they were delicious. The octopus quinoa salad we ordered was nice enough. The sangria was simple but good. Nice spot on the roof, can be hot if you are in the full sun though. Service was really good, but there were only... More

Nice views from this little rooftop bar-restaurant, and excellent food, including the shrimp-creamed spinach appetizer, duck tacos, etc. Good wine and other drinks too, and good service. This is one that we would recommend and return to again.

I was GRANDPAcking in San Miguel for 7 nights and popped down here 3 times. They have an OK 2-for-1 Happy Hour between 5pm and 7pm. The best bit about it is that it is a rooftop bar with views and, for the smokers, there is a smoking area.

We visited based on the reviews of SMA rooftops that we found elsewhere. La Azotea was disappointing. It was hot, as it is partially enclosed. There was too much smoke. The food and service were mediocre at best.

I went here on a food tour. I mean to come back. It is pretty; it looks great. None of that matters. Come and have the jicama tacos. End of review. Trust me.

This has been one of our favorite spots for the last three years but service has suffered on return of owner I'm sad to say. Locals all know the story and we've continued to support for that very reason. Tonight he's back and things changed. Quiet Sunday night it is usually the best pace to visit for drinks and great...

Perfect top of the city views near the Jardin for a before dinner or late night drink and bite. The jicama tacos are yummy. Tuesday 2 x 1 Mojitos and Margaritas. Fun, friendly atmosphere.

We dined at Azotea because after the first night we had dinner there was just so incredible we had to return for a second night . Everyone has posted the "Jicama Tacos and the Spring Roll " were divine .

Years ago this was a very popular place. The owner was around which assured that the service did not lag and could not do enough for his clients. That no longer is true. Went with a friend who had a small (Chihuahua) a Service Dog with her. We sat down and ordered a drink. The "so called" manager came over... More
