Cuernavaca Restaurants – La India Bonita

Recognized today as one of the oldest restaurants in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico, La India Bonita is a must-visit restaurant when you’re in town. Dwight W. Morrow, the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico from 1927 to 1930, immediately fell in love with the city of Cuernavaca and had this house built. Originally, it was known as “Casa Mañana” because every time Morrow asked the builders when the house would be done they said: “Mañana” (“tomorrow”).

A number of notable people visited the house, such as Mexican President Plutarco Elias Calles, painter Diego Rivera, and designer William Spratling.

Later, the house served as a restaurant for many years. Then, after meticulous remodeling was done in order to restore its original design, the restaurant was re-opened in 1992 with the new name La India Bonita.

The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Come experience La India Bonita‘s 100% Mexican atmosphere! Enjoy a leisurely meal in one of the two terraces surrounded by beautiful gardens, or just have a drink during Happy Hour between 8 and 9 p.m.
