For locals and visitors who are going out for a special occasion, La Capilla is one of the top restaurants in the city. Be warned, though, that this meal can be very expensive compared to Mexican standards, or even American standards. La Capilla serves unique and innovative poultry and seafood recipes, with sauces created using exotic fruits, spices, and cheeses. Dishes are served on the terrace, which used to be a part of the old Parroquia church property. A couple can enjoy a three course meal, with wine, for around two hundred American dollars, which is steep for many.

This restaurant is popular for chicken mole, sopa azteca, and other dishes that are part of the traditional Mexican fare. The dining room is decorated with a giant bougainvillea plant. This eatery has a more modest price, with dinner for a couple costing a little more than fifty dollars including the wine. La Cartuja, which is located at 109 Calle Hernández Macias, serves traditional Spanish recipes in an Old World setting which is both exciting and intimate. The menu includes a number of tapas, as well as staples like Serrano ham and other Spanish treats. It is a little less expensive than Bugambilia, but still has exquisite traditional Spanish food and quality wines available. Dinner for two including a nice bottle of wine will cost around forty five dollars for a couple.
