In the middle of the hills between Guanajuato and Dolores Hidalgo, this place counts with beautiful views that you can enjoy while you are eating and/or discussing a paper with your colleagues (a considerable number of researchers from CIMAT visit this restaurant very often). The food is quite good and the Mezcal is strong (remember you have to drive back... More

Wonderful traditional Mexican restaurant with a great view and some very good traditional Mexican food. The meal begins with a type of pork rind chips and 3 tasty salsas that are not too spicy. The bowl of marinated chilis and carrots was a bit on the spicy hot side though. We thoroughly enjoyed the Chicken enchiladas, the Suissa Enchiladas and... More

This restaurant offers great food in a relaxed atmosphere. In my experience, the service is good. They serve local typical food, such as cecina (dried meat) and local-style stakes. I have visited the place many times over the years, and the experience has been consistent. It is very likely that I will return to that place.

This a traditional restaurant near Guanajuato. If you really want to try real Mexican food, go to this place. I personally recommend to try the tampiqueña, which in my opinion is the best dish they have. Try the sweet lime flavored water (Agua de Lima) and enjoy your meal. They accept credit cards.

We had some of the best food of our 2 months in GTO, and the trip up into the mountains was awesome. The chili rellenos were excellent, and the view was superb. Get a table by the window, and don't forget to stop at the ceramic shop to browse. Catch the bus on Calle Alhondiga in front of the Hotel... More

Restaurant de la Sierra is a must for anyone who spends more than a few days around Guanajuato, or it can be visited on your trek to Dolores Hidalgo, San Miguel, or points north. Wonderful for breakfast, lunch, or early dinner, or even a hefty snack before or after a hike. This place serves up local specialties like cecina and... More

You know when a restaurant is good when it is visited regularly by locals and always is full. Food here is delicious and offers local specialties. If you drink, get a house mezcal. Good portions and awesome food at affordable prices. Got famous because famous Mexican songwriter José Alfredo Jiménez was a regular patron.

Excellent choice if you are looking for tasty Mexican food. The restaurant is located outside Guanajuato but just 15 minutes away. Safe parking is provided, which is a luxury in Guanajuato. Fully recommended.
