Though the atmosphere is casual, with eclectic and bohemian artwork, the food is serious and features old recipes and uncommon indigenous sauces. It’s a pleasant 10-minute walk from the Zona Romántica; from Cárdenas turn right on Rivero del Río, just before the Río Cuale bridge.

“If Frida Kahlo had opened a stylish boho yet homey restaurant with a menu that featured Mexico’s greatest dishes, it would have been like The Red Cabbage Cafe in Puerto Vallarta. The food is pure artistry. Go Hungry: You’ll want to order everything on the menu including creamy guacamole, zuccini flower quesadillas, and cream of peanut soup – and you’ll want to eat every last bite. The spirit of Kahlo is present: One entire wall of the dining room is devoted to her and her husband, fellow artist Diego Rivera.” – Bon Appetit
