Service is almost none exsitant, the food is terrible. It's a shame as the place could be fabulous The perfect venue for special events etc, but when they have a function they are ill prepared. However the music is great..

We joined the Benefit Concert for SailFest. The waiter NEVER came to our table. I even took his hand and walked him to our table. He made some excuse about not having any paper, the second time he said there was only one cook in the kitchen. With over 100 people attending the concert they had VERY INSUFFICIENT staff to...

We found this little gem totally by accident. We literally were walking pass, I just happened to glance in and saw this old, magical courtyard nestled in an authentic Mexican pueblo! The setting is wonderful. We had the Chili en Nogadas. They were scrumptious. We will be going back.

Great Mexican tradition of Pozole on Thursdays. Great music of Jose Luis Cobo (Spanish Guitar). I definitely go back and recoment people to go back on Thursday. They also are involved with Guitar fest and do a great job. Its an outside sitting in a lovely old spanish building.

We went there for guitarfest - the place was crowded and there were only 2 waiters. The service was awful we had to order our food 3 times. Was quicker to go to the bar for our drinks than be served. When the food arrived it was very poor quality. I would not recommend this place. If you go to... More

The Chile en Nogada here is authentic, flavorful, and full of the complex flavors that are a trademark of this traditional dish. Our meal was so good, we'll certainly return here on our next trip. The Chile en Nogada dish starts with a not-hot poblano chile stuffed with a savory/sweet mixture of meat, fruits, vegetables, spices, herbs, and cream, is... More

El Pueblito is a little off the beaten tourist track, on Heroico Militar near La Papa Loca and Carmelitas. It isn't a white tablecloth sort of place, but the surroundings are comfortable -- a big, open courtyard -- and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Our family has had good luck with a number of the Mexican specialties on the menu.... More

Maybe too many people for all the wait staff during Guitar Festival. Rude waiter, forgot our order, and we saw him standing in the corner having cocktails with other waiter while we had no food or drinks come our way for an hour.....ouch.

My husband and I came here to try their posole, but fell in love with their BBQ pork - it was so tender and flavorful. I wish I had ordered it instead! I had the verde posole and it was quite too spicy fo my taste. I would have given this restaurant a better review, but there was a heckler... More
