    Incredible as always. I’ve lost count of how many times we’ve come here, but they somehow manage to exceed expectations every time. We always get the ceviche, cabbage, and steak. But the scallops, nopales, pork, tetela, and sopes are amazing as well. Incredibly cocktails. Beautiful views. Very very professional.

    Fauna has all the magic I had hoped for. Lovely & comfortable outdoor seating, an earthy/rustic vibe, and skilled, well informed service. The cocktail list is well curated, as was the wine list. The tortillas! Light, soft blankets that nestled my deliciously charred pulpo. The pork tacos were succulent & tender, well dressed with lime & avocado. The yellowtail ceviche had all the umami you can handle. The scallops in squid ink were delicate & earthy at the same time. Dessert matched the meal in quality and uniqueness. It would be a shame to spend time in the Valle and not make time for a meal here.

    Todo estuvo delicioso, excepto la berenjena. Pedimos el Festín, consta de varios tiempos, sentimos que tardaron mucho entre cada tiempo. Todo estaba riquísimo, pero estuvimos ahí 3 horas y eso porque al final pedimos que apresuraran la última parte porque ya teníamos que irnos. Tal vez es parte de la estrategia para que disfrutes cada tiempo, pero fue demasiado. Había mucha gente y tal vez eso hacía un poco más lento el servicio. Los cócteles muy ricos también.

    Mother’s Day Great place, amazing food. Everyone loved it. Service was good but has room for improvement. It’s in the reservation notes and food was amazing, but not being able to select what you want to eat just because your party is larger than 5, just doesn’t makes sense. The ceviche and lamb were definitely the favorite.

    La atención fue excelente desde la llegada hasta que nos colocaron en nuestras sillas, me llamó la atención que son mesas compartidas pero eso hace que la experiencia sea mejor ya que permite la interacción con los demás comensales, escogimos el bufé festín el cual es delicioso es mucha comida pero cada uno de los tiempos fue una experiencia gastronómica sin precedente y cerrando con broche de oro con los tiempos de postres que fueron una delicia.

    I was really excited to go to Fauna but my expectations weren’t met mainly because our male server brought us 2 drinks that we didn’t order and said they were “chef’s choice” and then charged us for them. I thought that was shady. The food was good but not as good as other places in Valle and really expensive. We were also covered in dust the entire meal by the fans. The staff was great with the exception of that guy, and the grounds were beautiful

    One would have thought that paying a HIGH price would guarantee good service anywhere in Mexico… This is not the case in Fauna… I doubt you would find a pricier restaurant in this area and the food is great… Nevertheless, service is Fair at best… More detail? Even though we made a reservation over a week in advance, they sat us at the bar… The bar, as you might expect, has bar chairs which translate to not-very-comfortable chairs… You couple that with bad/slow service and you end up with a bad combination… We might have been unlucky… yet, in Mexico, the one thing you could count on is Excellent Service… Not here

    One suggestion is, better signage to follow & to find restaurant. Other than that - unbelievably great drinks, marvelous food, fantastic service. Definitely coming back!!
