The Ultimate Valle De Guadalupe Food Bucket List!

I used to think that places that were known for their wine wouldn’t have delicious food but Napa Valley and now Valle De Guadalupe in beautiful Mexico have proven me wrong!

As I was planning my trip I was pleasantly surprised to see that there are a ton of incredible restaurants there! After visiting for a few days and trying so many different kinds of cuisine, I can guarantee that no matter what you like to eat, you’ll find a great spot in Valle De Guadalupe (VDG). I highly recommend that you make reservations ahead of time if you don’t want to wait for a table.

Check out my favorite food recommendations in VDG and let me know if I need to add others!

Casa Frida

We tried the lunch at another winery where we had a wine tasting: Casa Frida and it was so good! Check out my full review of Casa Frida here. They start you off with three different kinds of salsa. There are two restaurants at this winery and we tried the Corazon D’Petra Restaurant.

For our appetizer, we tried the fried duck quesadillas and they were phenomenal! During my stay in Valle De Guadalupe, I absolutely fell in love with blue corn so any opportunity that I could, I would order it.

For the entrée, we shared this giant meal: the Asado Diego that came with skirt steak, ribeye, chorizo, fried machaca, seasonal vegetables, guacamole and beans. Everything was amazing but the star of the show for me was the fried machaca. It was so crispy and flavorful! This dish is meant to be shared and it would be perfect for 3-4 people.

La Cocina de Dona Esthela

If you’ve never been to La Cocina de Dona Esthela, you are absolutely missing out! It’s really hard to get a table as it’s very busy but I promise it’s worth it! They start you off with chips, salsa, and queso fresco.

They also have delicious cafe de olla!

Their machaca is amazing!!

Their chilaquiles are also delicious!


We tried Cuarzo for their breakfast as it was highly recommended by folks online and it also was an open air restaurant which was perfect for us to enjoy the weather! As soon as you sit down, they bring you pan dulce (sweet bread) with jam and I wish every restaurant did this. It was so good!

I tried the red and green chilaquiles with shredded beef and it was so delicious!!!! It was also a lot of food so I would definitely recommend coming very hungry or sharing it with someone. The chips were perfectly fried, the salsas had so much flavor, and the shredded beef was incredible.

My dish came with pinto beans and they were tasty!

We also tried the enchiladas with shredded beef and it was so good! Everything was delicious here and we highly recommend it!

We also tried this shredded beef in a cast iron skillet that came with tortillas. It was so juicy and delicious!

Don Tomas Viñedo

For breakfast, we tried the restaurant at Don Tomas Vinedo, where we were staying. Check out my full review of Don Tomas here. I had the pan dulce (sweet bread) with fresh fruit and it was so good! The fruit tasted very fresh and the bread was sweet and delicious.

We also tried the chilaquiles with arrachera meat and black beans and although it sounds and looks simple, it had so much flavor!

The restaurant at Don Tomas Viñedo was so good that we went back for dinner. I tried the rib eye tacos on blue corn tortillas and I think blue corn tortillas are my new fave! The meat was so flavorful and the cheese and salsa on top was so good!

We also tried the flat bread with salsa pomodoro, arrachera meat, artisenal cajun sausage, lamb, and cheese. It was excellent! There was so much flavor in this one dish.

I had the best time in Valle de Guadalupe and cannot wait to return. I hope this post inspires you to visit beautiful Valle De Guadalupe.
