Colorful and Traditional. Great service and the food was perfect! They offer crafted beer, very nice but a bit expensive.

This would be the perfect place for eating a decent variety of mexican food, with great taste and assuring the quality of the products. Order the molotes or the mole poblano if you are uo to something more spicy.
