Fodor's Expert Review Casa la Aduana
Frente a la Placita, Aduana, Sonora, 85760, Mexico
Though it's in an unlikely spot 3 km (2 mi) off the highway into Álamos, the restaurant here has a reputation as the best in the state. The restored 17th-century customhouse presents exceptional four-course, prix-fixe menus, with entrées such as tenderloin tips, pork tenderloin, beef medallions, and chicken in an apple-chipotle cream sauce. Although the walls and floors of the bed-and-breakfast here are the restored originals, modern luxuries haven't been overlooked: soft linens, comfortable beds, and thick bath towels add to the charm. Guest rooms have 4-foot-thick walls, which reflect their former duties as vaults for the riches that came from this area's mines. Your stay includes breakfast and four-course dinner.
