Th efood is usually fresh and well prepared. We had some thuna tostadas, guacamole and a variety of ships: potato, banana, manioc and sweet potato. The Mexican quesadilla with champignons, cheese and pumpkin flowers was very good. Drinks, especially mezcal and margaritas are a must.

We loved this place. Food was amazing, and the mixed drinks were really good and original. We loved it so much we went back on a very short trip. The only drawback is that is very noisy, so go early or very late.

Great space and atmosphere, attentive service, food is presented beautifully with a taste to match. They do meats well (beef, chicken), and I love the pomegranate seeds sprinkled on the guacamole. Eating here-- even or just drinks-- is a quality dining experience and is reasonably...More

Initially liked the buzz and atmosphere, and cocktails, but as it got busier it was overwhelming. Service was good. I ordered a chicken breast stuffed with pistachio and covered in crushed tortilla. Sounded great and waiter assured it would be moist. Very disappointed! Dry and...More

Easy to explore either on bike or foot, Condesa offers
a great variety of activities and places to visit
while admiring its neo-colonial architecture. Diverse
restaurants vary from regional to global along its
streets, while local bars even let you craft your own
beer. The urban yet relaxing vibe let visitors cycle
or stroll on the Amsterdam Circuit.

Hi Ruta. I just ate there, I am not the restaurant. You can find their phone number on the TA listing. I could not find a web site address. Ted

how is the handicapped access? a few steps we can manage (wife is in a wheelchair) but more than that (like a whole flight of stairs) can be a problem.

It has a ramp to access the restaurant, but restrooms are on the second floor. I didn't see elevator or ground floor facilities.
