We went to have dinner. We were welcomed super friendly. The waiters took really care of us. The menu gives a variety of mexican dishes.
We shared some kind of grilled cheese as starter - really tasty. Also we liked the cocktail of the week, an advanced Mojito.

Erlum

Reviewed By DianaAlexandra83 - Queretaro, Mexico

I love this place. The food is delicious and the beer menu is excellent. Not only do they have a vast variety of imported and local beers, but they make their own. And it's really good! At an awesome price! The ambient is nice, it's not always full of people and the music is good and at an acceptable volume, so you can enjoy a nice chat with your friends. Love it.

International With An Italian Touch. Honnest Food

Reviewed By MTYAOB - Monterrey, Mexico

This unpretentious restaurant in Queretaro was a very pleasant surprise. We were unexpectedly treated to an outstanding dinner for an amazingly low price. Pasta, beef carpaccio, lamb chops, shrimp ravioli and other dishes were unanimously liked by our group. Desserts were great and, to top it off, when we got the bill we thought there had been a mistake because it was so low, including the two very acceptable bottles of wine we selected.

Beautifully decorated and painted interior, spectacular service and unforgettable food. They specialize in Oaxacan food, and that means moles of various kinds. They also have ants eggs, and grasshoppers on the menu. Interesting mixed drinks are also a source of pride. Service was perfect - had a lot of attention from our experienced waiter. This place is special - don't miss it.

Reviewed By RichieG42 - Queretaro, QRO

I love omelettes and have only found a few restaurants that make a perfect omelette; this is not one of them. Their omelette was overcooked, brown and tasteless and filling it with mushrooms, spinach or dehydrated tomatoes didn't help. My guest, however, had a scrambled egg which he enjoyed. Coffee is good and their rolls are unexpectedly light and flavorful but their juices are watered down. Overall, I guess my guest will return but not I.

Chinicuil

Reviewed By Andrew S - Hobart, Australia

Every city has that out-of-the-way restaurant. That tiny place that satisfies your deepest foodie desires every time, and then some. That place that you feel compelled to share, and yet with reluctance, lest it become a victim of its own popularity.
Queretaro may be popular with the locals, but it isn't on the gringo tourist trail. And even for those that do explore its magnificent streets, Chinicuil flies under the radar.
With only 5 tables you're advised to book - but secure yourself a reservation and you will enter a world of sublime modern Mexican cuisine guaranteed to satisfy even the fussiest palate.
We'll let our photos do the talking, but let's just say that this is one of the finest dining experiences we've had in Mexico to date - and it didn't cost us the earth either!
If you do decide to visit Queretaro, make this your first meal - you won't be disappointed!
