Set in a rambling art-nouveau house, this restaurant is a stunner in every way. The cuisine is largely from the Durango region and it would be fair to say that anything that passes by your lips here will taste good, but try the plato combinado (combined plate; M$111) – a selection of the chef's four prize dishes.

The menu is simple, and spoken only, so you’ll need to speak some Spanish to enjoy it here, although Carlos, the owner, does speak basic English. It's a little hard to find: the door is unmarked and it's on a quiet residential area on the northwest corner of Jesús and Reforma.
