Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The innovative take on Mexican cuisine was a culinary adventure. It combined traditional dishes with 2025 interpretations. And our waiter Cesar was wonderful!

The food. The service. The ambience. All of it was exquisite. The gem of the Conrad hotel but worth a visit for those staying elsewhere. Tasting menu showcasing traditional Mexican cuisine that offered something even for my family that aren’t adventurous eaters (my mother is...still raving about the mushroom foam on her tamales!) Bernie and his team have elevated the game for hotel restaurants in the area. They recommended an excellent Mexican Sauvignon Blanc to pair with it and had the remainder of the bottle recorked and sent to our sushi restaurant the next night. There truly aren’t enough words to describe how spectacular the meal was. The pumpkin dessert was by far the most surprising and will stick with me for awhile.More

The wines are too expensive And as a client you feel rip off And if the price were reasonable people will order at least for two bottles or more depending on how many pepople. But Whit those skimming prices it is impossible

We sat facing the kitchen. It was an amazing culinary experience to see the food prepared. The chef had us try new dishes directly off the line. Really an amazing dinner

Great dinner with amazing tasting menu. By far the best item was the tamale. Sat kitchen side and one of the chefs took the time to speak with us. Our waiter, Demetrius was great and attentive.
