This is a no-menu, fixed-price restaurant featuring "local foods prepared in a French style." After asking whether we had any food allergies or serious dislikes, the waiter (who spoke English) offered us a 5-, 7- or 8-course dinner. Our 5-course dinner consisted of salad, soup, a fish entree, a beef entree and desert. There was a variety of drink options... More

We were lucky to have been taken to this little gem for lunch after a breathtaking drive through the "Rumorosa". At first we were a bit taken aback by the simple yet eclectic decor of this little neighborhood house, but were quickly swept off our feet by the Chefs, the sommelier and the outstanding cuisine!

Hidden in a back street in little magic Tecate, is this heart made restaurant. The menu is one of courses, you get to choose how many "steps" your meal will have, from 2 to 7, but it is fixed according to the freshest ingredients its Chef, Marcelo, gathered for the day. I work as a cook in a highly regarded... More

Our party of 11 had a really great dinner. We had the prix fixe dinner of 5 courses, which turned into about 7 or 8 by the time we had some of the extra little plates. Some of our party are vegans and some vegetarians and the restaurant managed to adapt all the dishes to please everyone. Everything was fresh... More

A friend tipped us off to Amores and we're glad he did. It's a bit of a trick to find, on a sidestreet with an unimposing narrow frontage. You enter through the kitchen; the dining room is simple and rustic. We were there at a slow time - 3:00pm on a Sunday - so we pretty much had the place... More

You have to know where you are going to find this hidden gem but once there you are transported to a different world. The food was fresh, exciting and in a word special. The staff were attentive and the chef showed genuine care for our opinions. The price was 25% of what it would be north of the border.

Quite the interesting place. The front door opens right into the kitchen, then it's a small step down into the dinning room. It's a bit on the small side, I remember about 8 table total, but half of them would hold 6-8 people each. It was hot the day we went, 93 outside and the A/C did not come close... More
