The atmosphere is pleasant enough inside and the outside terrace overlooking the plaza is pretty except you get to smell the cars fumes from the constant traffic a few feet away. The service was underwhelming. I ordered a breakfast of scrambled eggs, mushrooms and cheese...More

This place was recommended to us by staff at our hotel and I only noticed later on that it was rated so highly on TA... and I can see why. The concept is great, it is a restaurant that also sells deli products, wines and...More

Nice place with very attentive personnel. We liked very much the meal, especially the "charales". We spend a very nice time during our stay.

We travel to Patzcuaro about once a month and always eat at Surtidora -- a delightful place to relax after a day of pursuing the art at the villages surrounding the lake. Surtidora not only has delicious food but a decent wine selection and good...More

Excellent food and wonderful service! I had left my hat there, without even realizing it, and when we returned for dinner, our previous waiter sought me out to return it! The margaritas are tasty, trucha de 4 quesos excellent and location tops!
