It's a very long way from the kitchen to the palapa tables, so don't get in a hurry.
The platos fuertes arrived in their good time.
Presentations were simple but attractive, the food was good, but we couldn't help but compare the frog's legs with those at Mariscos La Güera. These were tasty and crisp but less juicy and meaty than those at La Güera at their best. Still, they were enjoyable overall.
The dessert offerings were meager: chongos or duraznos. We passed.
I enjoyed a cigar, we took pictures, then got the bill. It was, if I recall correctly, $412 pesos for three dinners, including drinks.
Service: ***1/2 But don't be in a hurry.
Price: $1/2 Our meals averaged out to about $140 pesos each, with tip.
Ambience: Relaxed; México, 1950, very enjoyable.
Rest rooms: Old line, but adequate. Paper towels available, and there was soap. No seat on toilet, and a somewhat "interesting" pissoir in the Caballeros' room. Click for view.
Worth a visit if you are in the area. Cuitzeo, a Pueblo Mágico, is very much worth a visit, especially for the ex-convent. Slide show of Cuitzeo, below.
