Our hotel had an arrangement with this little restaurant and we were glad that they did! We trotted over there with our tickets each morning and were treated to a delicious meal and plenty of hot coffee. It was a real treat.

We went several times and the salads were amazing. Tried a cactus salad. New for us, as we never had cactus. Was great.

We forgot that El Pegaso was closed on Wednesdays, so we went around the corner to El Correo. The four of us ordered what we like, but our servings came slowly and separately, so at least one of us was nearly done before the last plate came. The food rated fairly well. Breakfast is breakfast, after all. Waiting for the... More

Could not get in to Pegasus so walked across the street to El Correo. How lucky were we? The sangria was delicious! We had enchiladas suisa, bean soup, tortilla soup, flautas, Chicken tostadas and guacamole. All 6 of us raved about our meal. It is small but we Did not have to wait long for a table.

We ate here our first day in the city per other people's recommendations and we were very happy. It is quite small but service is efficient, food excellent and the blue/white traditional porcelain just beautiful. My husband had a stuffed chile and I had the enchiladas. We should have tried them for breakfast as that looked very popular. Tip: Go... More

I was looking for a good place to have lunch with my kids, the ones around the garden were pricy and the service was slow. This one had good reviews so I decided to try it. The "Chile relleno" was very good, melted cheese was excellent. Only two waiters but the service was fast.. loved the place...

Description
This is a restaurant which serves few gringos who seem to love places which are tailored for serving the expat population. El Correo has excellent food and wonderful service. it's a brief walk from the Jardin and when we were there we went to El Correo 3 times. Gets 4.5 stars in my book. It deserves to be reviewed on TripAdvisor.
