Casa La Golondrina
Casa La Golondrina is located inside the Pelanconi House, which is purportedly the oldest brick house in Los Angeles. The house has been open since 1855 and was named after its second owner, Antonio Pelanconi. It is a private residence but the restaurant serves delicious Mexican fare accompanied by Mariachi music and live dancers. It is a very popular spot for authentic Mexican fare in a unique, historical setting.
We went to this restaurant because it appeared to be the nicest around and they had the A in the window which is encouraging. We were not disappointed. There were 3 of us and all 3 of us enjoyed our food, which for us this is unusual as one of us is invariably disappointed. We all thought the food was great, the service was efficient and friendly, the margarita was delicious.We will definitely go back and normally I don t even like Mexican food.
My friends and I attended their Las Posadas show on December16th 2011. To get to the point, we were extremely disappointed with the highly priced food (which was terrible and needed lots of salsa to disguise it's blandness) and a amateur show. In the past, this was the site to go for fresh homemade food and inspiring professional entertainment that made you want to revisit Olvera St. over and over again. However, despite the negative,La Golodrina's management has not neglected the salsa! This was satisfactory! Thank God for the salsa! Unfortunately, that was the only thing acceptable about the food. If I were you, I would take a step up and go to Taco Bell for the holidays. Maybe overall, you will come out of there with a smile and quite a bit richer!
MI EXPERIENCIA EN '' LA GOLNDRINA '' DE LO PEOR PARA EMPEZAR UN GUACAMOLA AGRIO, EL PESCADO LA PARILLA SIN SABOR ,15 MINUTOS PARA LLEVARME UNA HORCHATA Y LO DESAGRADABLE UN MAL SERVICIO Y MI CAMBIO INCOMPLETO '' QUE MALA ONDA''
What a tourist trap. This restaurant looks Mexican and even has chips but the food is terrible. I personally love Mexican food but I don't like to be lied to or cheated. The waitress kept on forgetting orders. Then said they make their guacamole in front of you. Then recommended this crab burrito that was God aweful....it had mayo and was cold and topped with red sauce over the burrito. Where in God's name can you find such terrible food? At a restaurant called La Golondrina Cafe. The service and food is so bad even the pigeons won't eat it. This restaurant is not honest and lies to visitors who are there for one time only. Never again....and I love Mexican Food.
This is one of my very favorite Mexican restaurants to eat at. The food is very authentic and delicious. I highly recommend it to those who think El Torrito & Acapulco is actually good. You haven't tasted anything until you eat here.
Crowded! Not the best, but very popular. This is the most crowded restaurant along Olvera Street. This could easily be a tourist trap also since it's not the absolute greatest Mexican food you'll eat and the number of tourists packed here doesn't make for a very special experience. It's okay, but very popular.
