Ven y come FAUNA.
Jueves-Viernes-Sábado 01:00pm - 10:00pm (última reserva)
This may have been the best restaurant I have ever eaten at. Each dish in fact became my favorite until we had the next dish. It was superb!! I will be going back as soon as I can.
De los mejores restaurantes mexicanos... los sabores totalmente equilibrados... espectacular!
Great place, perfect fot sharing dishes and big groups.
Fantastic atmosphere, beautiful location. Amazing food made with local ingredients. Highly recommended!
The vibe of Fauna is great, the food is great as well, however you have to be prepared for communal dining, you sit at tables with other guests. Also, be prepared to order different tasting menus--a la carte is limited. Great experience, though...
Experiencia única, sin duda la mejor experiencia gastronómica del valle.
The restaurant is "experimental cuisine" which means that everything is different from what you'd expect. The problem is that no where is this indicated. The menu offers zero descriptions, and the waiters weren't helpful either. We had a hard time finding things that sounded good. At last we settled on shrimp ceviche appetizer and the pork salpicon for our main dish. I expected the shrimp to be cooked. (Fish ceviche is raw, but shrimp ceviche is typically cooked -- but not here!) The texture was chewy and slimy and horrible! Then, for the salpicon, I expected shredded lean pork. Instead we got cubes of pork fat. Yuck!
The ambiance is cool and the seasonings are tasty, but they really should do a better job of describing their food so you know what to expect.
I've been to Fauna on two occasions so far. Our first experience was AMAZING from start to finish, 5 stars all around. Our second experience left a lot to be desired, and most of the problem revolved around our server. She was clearly upset about the dietary restrictions of one member of our 6-person party (our friend has an avocado allergy). She continually served us dishes without explaining what she was serving. We had to ask her on almost every dish whether there was avocado in it, because the first dish actually *did* have avocado and she didn't tell us. She neglected to tell us for that course that there was a separate dish coming out for our friend that didn't contain avocado. Awesome that the chef prepared a different dish for our friend, but there was absolutely no communication made to us about it, so we had no idea what was going on. We asked for the wine pairing with our tasting menu, and twice she brought out new courses without serving new wines, only later to discover that the restaurant didn't offer pairings for those two courses. Again, we were totally fine with that, but some communication about it from our server would have been nice. All in all, the food was still spectacular, and the restaurant is undeniably gorgeous. That particular server simply shouldn't work there. She ruined a huge part of the experience for our friends who had never been to Fauna before.
We loved Fauna!! It was amazing and we enjoyed it immensely. David the Chef has done a beautiful job! We will certainly be returning!
One of the top restaurantes in the Valley, you will love the place and its amazing scenery of all the vineyards.
The restaurant is located in Bruma Winery, this place is beautiful.
The food of chef David Castro Hussong is delicious, will recommend it, it is worthy of.
Went here on our anniversary and it was amazing. Highly recommend having a wine tasting at Bruma before (roughly 40 min), then enjoying dinner at Fauna. We had the experimental menu and it was so tasty and unique. Service was excellent as well and spoke great English. Highly recommend!
El restaurante más rico de Valle, muy recomendado !
Me encanta este lugar, concepto, gastronomía, servicio, vino y mixologia. Lo recomiendo, vale la pena conocerlo. Me encanto el ceviche con pepino, sopes de pato, el platillo de borrego yummy
Las mixologias en la barra mientras esperas son lo máximo! Must have to go!
Excelso todo. No tengo más que decir...
i have dined many times at Fauna and it just gets better and better. Chef David has created a local experience like no other. We did the 4-course experimental menu with wine pairings and it was excellent as always. The restaurant has such an inviting environment with excellent staff. We will be back again and again.
La comida muy buena el Ribeye de kilo delicioso, pero Me gustaba mas el Tomahak!
Tube un problema Con la mesa donde nos sentamos a comer en el area de adentro, Se me enterro un astilla en la rodilla y apenas despues de 4 dias me la pude sacar ya que estaba muy enterrada, Si regresaria pero por un tomahak.
Cada visita a Fauna es una sorpresa muy agradable, super recomendado, excelente comida, bebida, postres y servicio
Spectacular and on e of Valle de Guadalupes treasures
El costo beneficio me pareció muy malo. La comida, para ser de Chef creo que excedieron de imaginación. Unos frijoles rojos con chicharrones? , ceviche de pescado insípido, el tercer tiempo muy rico (pato). No hay música en vivo que amenice.
Realmente no me gustó.
No tienen vino en cava de temperatura controlada (se tuvo que meter en hielo la botella).
Very good experience while in Valle de Guadalupe , food was very good , have to come here wishing to enjoy very well served .
The place is beautifull
Nos fuimos muy desilusionados. No nos quedamos a comer. Debería decir :"apto para personas que coman lo que nosotros queremos darles, de manera sorpresiva, y en las cantidades que el chef quiera"
La comida muy buena. Caro.
Buena selección de vinos de la region.
The restaurant is nice, a lot of people was there for lunch so the noise level was high. I asked by phone before our arrive, to please surprise my husband with a dessert with a "happy anniversary" plate. It never come.
When we arrived, the guy that received us says "hi, you are the one who called us for an anniversary surprise " I said yes trying not to be that obvious.
I waited and waited for the "surprise" and never come.
We are very disappointed to chose this restaurant for our anniversary
ESPECTACULAR EL MENÚ EXPERIMENTAL, EL AMBIENTE, LA MÚSICA....
El menú degustación lo vale completamente. Recomiendo más ir por el menú experimental que comer a la carta, todo riquísimo y excelente servicio.
Amazing restaurant... great food and service!
My favorite restaurant at the moment. Amazing views, delicious food and great ambiance!
Unique ambiance, great food!!
2nd time dining here and it did not disappoint! The food is extremely fresh, the servers informative and friendly, and the scenery is amazing!
I'm a big time foodie and the main thing I look for when I travel is great places to eat and have a good time. I didn't have any particular expectations from Fauna when I reserved and the whole experience was a wonderful surprise. The entire setting at Bruma is beautiful, but the restaurant itself has a very casual but still unique and upscale ambience. I loved the fact that you sit in a long table next to other people, we actually had small conversations with those around us, we got a good dessert recommendation and it was overall very pleasant. Service was top notch, I work in the hospitality industry and I recognize when the staff is well trained and motivated. Everybody, from the hostess to the waiters and even the Chef who passed by our table for a moment, they were all friendly, they perfectly knew the menu and would not only explain every dish but also recommend according to our preference, service was timely and kind.
The food is one of the best I’ve tried in a long time, ingredients are very well selected, dishes are simple but very creative at the same time and flavors are just perfectly mixed. It’s hard to describe how excellent food makes you feel, but I can tell you that a meal in this restaurant will be memorable and it won’t disappoint you in any way.
Handcraft beer was also very good and although they don’t have and extensive wine list, the white wine we tried was fresh and tasty.
Prices in general are more than fair. Since dishes are large and made to be shared, you can order several things to the center and try a little bit of everything. It is not an inexpensive place but for less than $50 usd each, my friend and I shared one starter, one ceviche, one tatemado main dish and one dessert including beer and tips… that price for amazing food!
All in all, the best dining experience I had in Valle de Guadalupe, even when there’s more famous places, I would recommend you not to skip this one in your itinerary.
Amazing restaurant in the most beautiful setting! We chose Fauna style for our meal and were extremely impressed with what the chef chose to make us. The food was so fresh and creative. We will definitely be back again.
personal muy amable, comida pretenciosa sin buen sabor
Excellent food you cannot imagine. One of the best restaurants I have been in my life.
It was a whole new experience, I couldn´t imagen that that kind of restaurant could exist in that area, simply spectacular, great in every each way.
Our new favorite restaurant in the ValleThe fixed price family style courses were all amazing. Best for parties of 6 or more so you can taste multiple dishes. Something for everyone and beautiful setting.
El menu sobresaliente ....cierran con broche de oro en el postre
I knew this was a community table situation, but hadn’t really expected so much of a community table. We were seated across from another couple and we ended up eating our whole meal talking to them, sharing dishes between the 4 of us, and having a great time. Maybe that’s not the case for everyone, but we had a good time and loved meeting new people.
The food portions are HUGE and wildly delicious. The oysters and the pork were the stars of the night. Highly recommended. And the drinks / wine list is excellent. But just don’t expect a quiet private date night in a corner by yourself :)
Todo muy bien , excelente atención , muy buena comida , muy bien servido , súper recomendable !
