We arrived without reservations and without foresight of the menu, where almost every menu item from soups, salads, appetizers and mains comprises some elements to make it "over the top" taste bud shock and impossible to plan 3 or 4 courses in sequence given the...More

We are at a loss to understand why this restaurant is so highly rated. We figured the chef must have left but were told this is not the case. We had pasta with chorizo and vegetarian couscous. Neither was worth finishing (and we love food...More

Found this place while checking out Museums during the day. The menu looked great and it was away from the Jardin (tourist area). It was a nice place to have a quite dinner with friends

Trying something different in GTO. French influenced restaurant in nice location. Had pasta (delicious) and French onion soup (similar to France but a lighter broth than traditional). Reasonable wine selection of French and Italian. Nice break from central MX food.

What a lovely break from Mexican cuisine, as delicious as it is. The bistro food is very tasty, from the lovely appetizers and soups, to the salads, pastas,and entrees. We were there on a Saturday night and there was live music in the gallery across...More

Service was good. Ambience was good. Two glasses of house wine were good. The bill was reasonable. The food just didn't turn me on. Ordered two appetizers and the couscous. I'm not Mr French cuisine, so that might explain it. Got a little too adventurous...More

The Midi or the South, are the different names that the south zone of France receives, a land full of history, architecture, culture and tradition. The midi is distinguished by having a warm and very familiar climate, its excellent environment made it a spectacular place. The music entertains visitors, who enjoy a good drink after a tour of the magical alleys of Guanajuato. Inspired by these distant European lands, it's like "El Midi" combines different flavors, aromas and becomes a delight for our guests. "Welcome to the Midi"
