We had breakfast there. My breakfast was OK but certainly not outstanding. My wife did not care for the place. They did seem to do a very good breakfast business. Basically ordinary offerings.

Lyni's has seen better days when the Schneider Family managed their small chain of Restaurants. The food is bad, service is bad, and the ambience looks old. Service is terrible as is wine selection (non existent). If you want a cafeteria, choose another one, Lynis is the worst of the lot.

Lynis is a Breakfast-Lunch-Dinner restaurant with a great menu and is very reasonably priced! If your not good at Spanish, No Problem! As there are pictures displayed for each dish.

Here in Mexico City, while trying to eat fast before a movie, found this place next to the cinemas on Reforma and 'Diana Cazadora's' monument, decided to give a try and it did not disappoint! I had a 'fish tampiqueña' and the wife the typical tampiqueña, it included a salad bar and courtesy coffee. The cheese flan is out of... More

LOVE this place - went there twice in the two days we were in Mexico City. The service is EXCELLENT and I loved the simple rice and eggs meal I had. My father had a seafood salad which he said was wonderful! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Mexico City!

If you are in the area ( Hyatt or the intercontinental) and want traditional and simple fare, look no further. The food is basic but excellent. The prices are very cheap by western standards ( about £4 for a main), and the bottled local beer is £1.20 a bottle. Everything comes with a bit of heat, but hey, you're in... More

No better place to go with your family for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The food was incredible and the service was too. I loved every part of my visit

I had read that this place was really good so I finally decided to give it a try. I was very disappointed. The food quality was terribly poor, the bread was definitely too presumptuos, which resulted in a dry, tasteless toast. I would skip this place.

We decided to try this restaurant out after having walked by several days ago. We were not sure what to expect, but we were looking to eat somewhere other than our hotel (Intercontinental Presidente), and this was close by. It was fantastic! Even though it was crowded, we were seated quickly, and for the 45 minutes we were there, we... More
