Located in the luxurious boutique hotel Casa Natalia situated just off the main square, Mi Casita offers an incredible fusion of European and Mexican cuisine. Chef Loic Tenoux, who also owns the hotel along with his wife (for whom the hotel is named), crafts dishes such as the fresh clams A la Diabla,, which pack a spicy punch thanks to chile de arbol, and chile relleno, which is stuffed with filet mignon and served with a black mushroom salsa. Reservations recommended.
Mi Cocina Restaurant
Foodies – you’ve come to the right place. Mi Cocina’s upscale and enticing menu is missing nothing but pretention. Chef’s Loic’s classic dishes — such as Paris on your Plate and Chicken with Chocolate — have become legendary among his guests. Freshness is the rule. From the catch of the day to locally grown organic vegetables, the focus here is on quality and inventiveness, and always a delight to the palate. Service is top-notch and the staff is professional and knowledgeable about each ingredient and dish. You’ll be dining in an oasis of 34 palm trees, serenaded by the wind rustling through their fronds and the chortling of waterfalls. Red brick floors and the big fire braziers complete the reflection of the four elements of earth, wind, fire and water which is Mi Cocina’s prevalent theme. (Closed Tuesdays during the summer season).
With 19 rooms that epitomize the concept of chic, a world-class restaurant and bar, and an expansive beautiful garden terrace with a crescent-shaped pool, waterfalls, and fire features, Casa Natalia is the ideal venue for your next event.
