Colibri Mexican Bistro

Originally from Cuernavaca, Mexico, owners Eduardo and Sylvia Rallo created Colibri Mexican Bistro out of their longing to find the authentic Central Mexican dishes they had grown up with. The restaurant features classic Mexican cuisine, blending rich flavors, textures and traditions from ancient Aztec and Mayan foods like chiles and corn with the unique blending of Spanish and French influences.

The menu boasts a variety of family recipes, blending innovative ingredients, and most served as small plate-tapas style. The restaurant is committed to building each dish from scratch and using authentic ingredients. Highlights include fresh, tableside-prepared Guacamole accompanied by soft hand-made corn tortillas instead of tortilla chips. Ceviche and a refreshing Jicama salad, with avocado, citrus wedges, cilantro and a chile piquin dressing are just two of the many-featured dishes that will awaken your taste buds. Classic sauces like ancient moles, and a creamy guajillo chile sauce, and flavors like epazote, the distinctive Mexican herb, play a huge part in accentuating every dish. The bar also boosts mouthwatering drinks such as sangria, mojitos and classic tequila cocktails infused with fresh fruit. And of course, save room to indulge in Colibri’s desserts from crepes with cajeta (caramel) or their famous warm chocolate cake.

Over 300 selections of Agave products including Tequila, Mezcal, and Sotol products.

This is an interesting place but everything is shoved into a small place and you definitely fell crowded. We stood by the bar and had to move everytime to let people by because there is not enough walking space with the bar and tables in place. There are bottles all over the place and many are rare finds (unless your at Tommy's). The food is good but for the money, I have had better. All in all, I would say go to tommy's instead. Tommy's has better food, cheaper prices, and better tequila selection.
