This is a lovely place with a nice service. I don't give five stars, because new year's eve dinner was way to expensive for the dishes quality. I mean, dinner was good, it tasted well and was fairly hot, but the price, in our opinion, does not achieve parity with the cuisine offered that night. One reads the general menu and gets high expectations concerning these type of evenings. To be fair, this is just a detail; everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves, so I don't condemn Santo Nahual. Anyways, the night was swell, the party was on and, then again, service was delightful.
Thanks, Loreto.
Thanks, Santo Nahual.

The place looked nice in the middle of an artisanal shopping arcade but the food was poor and the service worse. To be avoided...

The dining room is nicely set and the menue offers a vareity of choices even for vegetarians. The food is well prepared and one can choose from an interesting wine list.
Service is friendly and competent.
We spent a pleasant evening here and would come back.

We ate dinner here on two different occasions. The space is recently renovated and elegant, with magisterial plants setting the stage. The menu includes traditional Chiapan fare, e.g., Chipilin soup, which was excellent, with more adventuresome fare. The servers were prompt. Though outside one hears a lot of noise on the pedestrian street, the interior is a quiet oasis. Kiki's studio next door, she is a relative of the owner, is a real plus.

Santo Nahual (Formerly La Paloma restaurant) has been recently extensively renovated and has a lovely, embracing ambience. We went there twice and both meals were very tasty and beautifully presented. Our favorite things were the tuna with sesame seeds, the ceviche in a green sauce (sublime) and the mushroom risotto. Music nightly but much more mellow than the blasting bars on the same block. Kiki Mundo next door and La Galeria upstairs are also must see.
