Grotto

Reviewed By Alfredo J - San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Fine dining in Celaya and a great place for grilled meats. An amazing cream of habanero soup, and a very extensive wine selection. Service is very good and the food well cooked and plated. As a vegetarian salad and pizza are your only options, but the pizza is just average at best.

Reviewed By Ikeamillion - Houston, Texas

This is the closest to American Style cuisine that I have eaten in Mexico outside of Mexico City. Prices are a bit high and the menu seems to be a bit confused, but they still do a good job. Good quality of food as well as being properly cooked.

San Telmo

If you want to have a nice time at a nice place with your favourite people, San Telmo is the only place in town. The Ambiance & The flavour way above the rest. Come give it shot you wont be disappointed you will just join the flaw.

This is the easiest way to become a local without actually moving here. The food is not anything to write home about but the drinks and ambiance make up for it. Great int'l beer selection and finger food.

California Prime Rib

Reviewed By Patricio B - Mexico City, Mexico

Celaya is known for it's desserts but not much more. It is a small city with little to offer for foodies like me. I had a meeting so went fpr dinner to this Prime Rib Steakhouse. I played it safe and ordered a prime rib and a salad. Both where acceptable but not much more.
Wine selection is VERY limited and service is bearly aceptable

B.A. Buenos Aires

Reviewed By janeCelaya - celaya

The restaurant is pleasant and sunny with inside and outside eating areas. They have a good selection of choice red meats and some italian-type dishes, as well as wonderful salads. The service was efficient and pleasant, the decoration nice, the food good. But the restaurant was empty! What happened?

Pampa y Tango

Reviewed By smaresident - Mexico City, Mexico

This restaurant is inside the new Celaya mall. The restaurant was a big surprise with trilingual menu. Spanish, English and Japanese. The latter to accommodate the increasing number of Japanese people living close by because of the number of automotive factories.
The menu is very complete and well priced. With a good selection of meats. Will visit again for sure.

Restaurante Trapio

Reviewed By Beta J - Rochester Hills, Michigan

No words to describe the place, service and food. Looking from outside , I did not imagine how pleasure would be our dinner. We was in a team of 8 , and everybody got satisfied . As entry we got some salmon and sea food bruschetta , I tried the salmon with shrimp , octopus and mushrooms, and I can say that not only the presentation was perfect, but I felt each singular flavor separately and they was matching so well! The guys tried the house dish, pork and beef and everybody has so happy at the end!

Empanadas La Tia Guille

Reviewed By catepoe - San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

We wandered into Celaya and, while you won't find this city in guidebooks, you can't miss the line snaking down the block, just off the Jardin Central. Tremendous assortment of savory and sweet VERY flaky empanadas. We left with a wide assortment -- chicken mole, al pastor, manzana -- six in all, each around one dollar (12 pesos regular, a little more for house specials). Grab a bench outside and ENJOY!

It was good. Not the best tacos in Mexico. But it was good the salsas were a highlight. It is a small place. And the waiters were new. Had a mistake in our order and didn't know what to do.

La Traviata

Reviewed By Gringo_Scot - Silao, Mexico

What is the best steak in the area....BC? California Prime Rib? San Telmo? Trapio? Nope, hands down the best, THE BEST in the area is La Traviata! The service makes you feel like royalty. THE MOST friendly service staff and the chef routinely inquires with the customers on the floor to get firsthand commentary and feedback. Pasta you ask? Buenisimo!
