Great unique food. My wife had salmon cooked perfectly and served with a sauce named after the restaurant. I had a nopales salad that was simply delicious. I had the lamb dish and was not disappointed. Overall great food and service.

La cocina mexicana siempre ha sido fuerte, compleja y bien definida en sabores, ingredientes, métodos de cocción e incluso utensilios, sin embargo el Chef de Testal utiliza una mezcla de sabores: dulce con salado, agridulce, condimentado, que literalmente re-inventa los consentidos de la comida mexicana.
Sea lo que sea que elijas del menú, te dejará sorprendido y con ganas de regresar para seguir redescubriendo la riqueza de nuestra gastronomía.

The food and service were very good. The lack of English posed a problem but was not a major issue. Service could have been more attentive and the food not always amazing so it gets 4-stars all around. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for high-quality Mexican food in CDMA.

All 4 in our party enjoyed our menu selections. 1 of us had pork mole, and the other chicken - both were moist and flavorful, although the portions were too large. The grasshopper soup was delicious, so glad I tried it. Service was excellent.

Testal is a lovely restaurant & very close to Belles Artes, which worked well for us to attend an evening event after dinner. The house salad with its cheese bowl was outstanding, as was the fish with honey & mustard sauce. The chicken Milanese was a bit dry and could have used a sauce. Service was excellent and the food came so quickly we were pleasantly surprised .

I had dinner here with my spouse and two teenagers, one of whom is vegetarian. We loved the entire experience. The Maitre D' and the staff take obvious pride in the restaurant and were solicitous and accommodating throughout the evening. They were also patient with our vegetarian daughter, pointing to each dish on the menu that they could convert into a vegetarian one. She wound up asking them to make vegetarian burritos, which they did, even though there were no burritos at all on the menu. The food was delicious.
The ambiance was lovely-- white table cloths and local art on the walls. The music was a great mix of Mexican and American pop, played at a low volume just for atmosphere, so conversation was easy.There are also some tvs mounted high on the walls, but the place overall still came across as elegant(note, there is another section of the restaurant next door which is more casual so be careful to specify which you choose).
We started with guacamole, made fresh by our server at our table. It was among the best we've had. So was their Caesar salad--made fresh at our table, classic and delicious! I had the soft taco shrimp appetizer--another standout. One of our daughters ordered the soft taco appetizer filled with tiny deep fried fish. It was good, but the shrimp were better.
Mains included my chicken breast with Pueblo style mole sauce. Perfectly cooked and tender, and the sauce was complex and a wow. They have 4 different moles to choose among, BTW. My spouse had the breaded chicken cutlet, also terrific.
The best of our desserts was the molten chocolate lava cake-outstanding. Others were all very good, though not raves -- dulce de leche and another type of chocolate cake.
We would go again! This place checks all the boxes--authentic, delicious Mexican food, and great ambiance, service and value.

Invité a mis compañeros de trabajo para que conocieran el excelente sabor de los platillos. Fuimos 13 personas y, al igual que yo la primera y ésta ocasión, todos quedaron encantados.

La atención que recibimos de las personas que nos atendieron fue excelente. El señor Santos, quien fue nuestro mesero, fue muy cordial, amable y atento.

We were really looking forward to trying more upmarket Mexican food after having had several simple meals. The restaurant looked pleasant. Decor is fine, but... my prawn taco starter was stale and my nail was cold and inedible. The waiter had suggested this strange smokey pineapple sauce with the salmon I wanted and it was awful. Cold and awful. My other half had the traditional worms and said it was good. He also had the octopus and chorizo tacos which he said were fresh. Maybe I was unlucky but it was super expensive for what was worse that the simple restaurants down the road. Nothing was deducted for my inedible food and was 3 times the price of a normal place.

Siempre lo recomendamos, es nuestro restaurante favorito de comida mexicana. Todas la carnes tienen la cocción perfecta y todo sabe a tradición. Aunque de manera personal, me gustaría que la comida con picante fuera un poco más picante, sin legar a los excesos. Gracias siempre!

El lugar está bellamente decorado con pinturas y artesanías michoacanas (el chef y los dueños son de los rumbos de Santa Clara del Cobre). El ruido no es molesto y la selección musical es regional mexicana. El servicio es atento aunque demasiado insistente. En cuanto a la comida, me quedo ante todo con el intenso sabor de la nogada (una de los mejores que he probado), pero que por momentos predomina tanto que llega a opacar el sabor del relleno de res y las frutas. ¡Antes de comerlo, lean el pliego con la historia del chile en nogada!
