Guadalajara’s centro histórico is home to many of Guadalajara’s most prestigious and jaw-dropping cultural landmarks, including the iconic Guadalajara cathedral and the Teatro Degollado. Among all these beautiful buildings there are some delicious restaurants and places to dine, hidden away. Read on for our guide to the top restaurants in the centro histórico of Guadalajara.
It’s easy to understand why I Latina is routinely named one of the best restaurants in Guadalajara, let alone just in the historic center, by both the usual top ten list generators and local bloggers. The food, service, and atmosphere are excellent, consistently offering top quality dining in the heart of Guadalajara. The range of dishes, from Asian dishes to traditional Mexican tacos and ceviches to hamburgers and Mediterranean meals, mean that all tastes are catered for, but don’t be overwhelmed by the food and forget to order a craft beer as the perfect accompaniment to your meal.

Chai is a favorite among locals, but particularly among visitors. With several different locations throughout Guadalajara, the one located in the cute courtyard opposite the Ex Convento del Carmen is one of the most attractive, offering incredibly comfortable outdoor sofa seating options that make getting up and leaving after your meal very hard. Most definitely a spot for lunch, Chai offers well-priced and basic favorites, such as pastas and sandwiches, but also has excellent (and namesake) Chai frappes in several flavors. The apple frappe is delightfully refreshing.

Located in a colonial mansion that was Spanish-owned prior to the Mexican civil war, La Rinconada really is impressive, and its position in the center of Guadalajara makes it the perfect spot to have drinks and a quick lunch. The service is friendly and efficient, with the food on offer mainly consists of simple, traditional dishes such as fish accompanied by rice.
