We have eaten here on previous visits to Colima. We went for breakfast. The eggs were good, nothing special. Good selection of hot sauces. Service rather brusk. Two of our group had coffee and they said it was lukewarm instant. A so-so meal.

Breakfast was an extremely busy time as local ate after and before church services. the staff was well trained and very efficient. Need a knowledge of Spanish to understand the menu and to order. Food was very good and a sampling of the local foods.

This restaurant started as a food stand God Knows when, my mom used to go there as a little girl, and I followed this tradition as a little girl in the current location (across the street from the original) if you are in need of some typical food from Colima known as "antojitos" I highly recommend visiting this place, the...

We stumbled upon El Trebol while walking around the historic center of Colima. The place looks family-owned and has a nice feeling to it. The service was quick and courteous, the prices were very affordable, but the food we had was good. Not great, not memorable; just good. Guess we were expecting a little bit more.
