Great Mexican food, from fried grasshoppers to the best hibiscus enchiladas I have tasted. Taste the margaritas and enjoy the variety of fresh Mexican food available. Besides the great food, this is traditionally decorated and it has a great service. Don't miss it

we went here twice for dinner after a a good first experience. On both nights the food was great and waiters very helpful. Some have limited English (and we have poor Spanish). On each night we had a good English speaking waiter knowledgeable about the food and wine. Cesar was very helpful and recommended a good Mexican red wine. We... More

Excellent restaurant near the Palacio de la Bellas Artes, with a large and interesting menu, that includes pre-Colonial dishes. Truly delicious, with unusual moles. Portions are large, so beware! Excellent service. Not cheap, but worth the price.

I stopped in to wait for the museums to open. The wait staff were in the spirit for Day of the Dead and very attentive. The café opens at 8:30 am. Croissant and coffee were excellent. I'll be back.

Not really a culinary extraordinaire. It's cool that they have a plaque declaring that part of 007 Spectre was filmed there. We had tortitas se huauzontle and they were quite good, especially because it's best to try local specialties.

Great location, perfect service, wonderful ambiance and very good food. This restaurant is surrounded by historic buildings in the heart of the city. Ask for a dry Martini and see why this place was chosen to be part of the set of 007 SPECTRE in 2015. Please, try the "crema de pistacho". It was terrific!

We sat out and enjoyed the warm evening. The James Bond theme wasn't what attracted us, but it was amusing none the less. The staff were friendly and attentive, they spoke Spanish and English with ease. Our two slightly overtired children were made welcome too. The food was very good, particularly the main courses. My Mum was pleased to get... More
