We were a little skeptical about going into this restaurant because on the menu they tell you that the food will be VERY SLOW. There only a few tables when we sat down so we ordered our drinks and food, believing the food would take some time. It was not slow at all and delicious. As we eat our meal... More

We visited La Biznaga for dinner one evening and found the tables set up in an inner courtyard. Their menu was quite extensive and included a selection of craft beers. We each ordered a margarita which was very good and enjoyed eating the free jicama appetizer while we waited for our food to arrive. Service was good and food reliable.

Had different starters - great ceviche - and two main courses. Food was great but definetely deserves better waiters to serve it. Waiters very at best neutral if not unfriendly

I arrived with a coiple of friends, my pregnent wife and two children at 12:52 and were told by the waiter that they would open at 13:00. We asked if we could wait for the eight minutes but another person (manager?) told us that we should get out. In a beautiful city with so much great food I wont go... More

Good atmosphere, bright and airy. I'm not certain if we hit the restaurant on an off night, the food was good, but not quite what I had expected from the reviews. That being said, nice little place for a drink and a bite to eat.

Food was beautiful, the tamale was incredible. However on both occasions that we went staff were rude and basically ignored you. Such a shame.

We happened to walk by the restaurant in search of coffee and saw the sign for complete breakfast for 100 pesos. Juice, coffee, full entrees that were delicious. I had huevos rancheros with homemade salsa and my husband had an omelette complete with beans and a salad. I would recommend to anyone!

Thank Melanie K
