    We sat outside on the patio (early August) and it was totally comfortable and right on the river. The sound of the water was so relaxing. The service and the food was exceptional. Excellent cocktails, especially the Tintoque Negroni. We had the smoked short ribs, enchiladas (very good still but our least favorite of everything we had), the chorizo empanadas, blue fin catch of the day sashimi and the “not a cheesecake” cheesecake mousse. The chef sent out a couple extra little bites as well. Wonderful!

    We booked a special birthday dinner and we were very happy with everything at Tintoque. The service was excellent and so was the food. We had the tasting menu with the regular wine pairings which was delicious, and was just right with how full we were at the end of the meal. We were seated on the outdoor patio which was very beautiful with the river flowing by. We would definitely return for a special occasion.

    Outstanding food, wine, service and ambience. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairings. We went with the lower priced wines since we wanted to try wines from Mexico. The higher priced wines were mostly French and you can have those anywhere. The Mexican wines were wonderful. Overall an amazing experience presented beautifully.

    I had such high hopes for this restaurant and was let down entirely. I came here to celebrate my birthday and was very excited after reading the reviews. Unfortunately this place missed the mark completely. The only positive was that the restaurant itself is very beautiful and romantic. The food was terrible. Basically ingredients that don’t pair well together and are overpriced. The tomato salad had a horseradish dressing which did not balance the dish well. Another dish was warm cabbage with beet hummus for $30 that had no flavor. And then there was the Foie Gras that was slippery and chewy. The drinks were not great either and so overpriced. They ran out of the fish and only told us 10 minutes after we ordered it so I had to eat corn as my main dish for $50. I sent back the inedible Foie Gras and they still charged me for it and made a fit when I asked for them to remove it off the bill. Also the audio in the restaurant kept malfunctioning and a VERY LOUD static kept piercing throughout while we were trying to enjoy our meal. Don’t even get me started with the dessert which I couldn’t even eat. We ended up spending over $400 USD and had to go to La Madalena afterwards since we left hungry and unsatisfied. I don’t recommend this overpriced wannabe fine dining establishment. Go to Cafe de Artistes instead if you want a great experience that is worth the price.

    Tintoque una joya que se encuentra en medio de la ciudad alejada del bullicio de la zona turística, ubicado estratégicamente al costado del río el cual nos deleita con su sonido arrullante. El servicio es cálido y te hace sentir como en casa, la explicación de los platillos por parte de los meseros es un plus que ayuda a complementar la experiencia. La comida es una experiencia interesante ya que convergen ingredientes locales con ingredientes de diferentes partes del mundo logrando así platillos clásicos con un toque refinado que nos ayuda a ver una perspectiva diferente del platillo, recuerda esto al leer el menú ya que dónde pienses que encontraras algo sencillo o común no sera así gracias a la dedicación del equipo de Tintoque.

    This was my third visit. The chef and staff have made drastic improvements to the menu as well as their service. Each dish was presented beautifully, and the server’s knowledge of each course was impressive. Our highlights included the crab bites and the lamb tamales, but the prime filet with fresh truffles and fois gras absolutely topped off our experience… it was cooked to perfection, and the flavors harmonized beautifully.

    Food was amazing, drink service was poor we could have consumed twice as many beverages if the staff had been more attentive. Pricing was 25-40% higher than i felt it should have been. Overall enjoyed the experience, bill was $13,500 pesos + tip.

Por el precio de los mismos y por la fama que tiene el restaurante esperaba quedar sorprendido, no fue así, regresaría, sí, siempre y cuando los platillos vayan acorde con el precio, gracias !!

    La cena estuvo espectacular! Todo muy bien. Lo único que me hubiera gustado es que hicieran algo especial ya que festejábamos un cumpleaños. Al llegar nos preguntaron que si celebrábamos algo y quien era el festejado. Con esto esperábamos algo especial, sin embargo no fue así. Fuera de eso todo lo demás está muy rico!
