Los Toltecos

My daughter told me about the Mexican restaurant in Strasburg a year ago, and showed me pictures of the murals. I made a mental note to go there, but then it closed. Later it opened with a new name and menu. it wasn't until I ran out of pictures for Monday Murals that I remembered to check it out.

The proprietor was happy to let me take some pictures. He was proud of the new decorative tables. The fancy chairs were there before.

The exterior of this restaurant is very plain, so you would never guess that the inside is full of art.

Mosaic Monday

I told my host that the sacrifice scene would ruin my appetite. I’ve heard that the Aztecs did such things but it’s pretty disturbing.

I’d rather look at birds and swans.


  1. Looks like a nice place. Love the art!

  2. These wall arts are so special

  3. Those photos are great! It is unusual to have so much art work in a restaurant. I agree about the lurid photo of the human sacrifice.

  4. Hello,
    Love the murals, the one is a little disturbing. The birds and swans are a favorite. Have a great day!

  5. Certainly wouldn't be ordering organ meat for lunch!

  6. There are a couple of Mexican restaurants in my town that have chairs that are very similar. However, I have never seen tables like that, although the tables at these two restaurants in my town have similar paintings on their tables. NOTHING like the sacrifice or even the swans, though.

  7. ...neat, Mexican restaurants here are short on decor.

  8. That is amazing. I'm always so in awe of the talented people that paint murals and art like this. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Yep, that really is a disturbing painting. Better just pass the chips and salsa. :-)

  10. Wow -- I wonder if you could ask for a table where your view was the birds and the beauty. (As I just said above I DO believe in remembering the bad history along with the good, but perhaps not while I'm eating .)

  11. They are very colourful.

    All the best Jan

  12. Wow, never seen a restaurant with so much art inside. Even the chairs are painted! Lovely. Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Linda.

  13. Very interesting this Cafe in Stra├čbourg. Years ago we was in this town but not in this Cafe.

    Thank you being part at

    Have a wonderful week.
