Corazon de Maguey celebrates our earth, our people and our culture with a selection of the best mezcal in conjunction with the food created by Chef Alejandro Pinon who generates gastronomical expectations that guide diners through a trip through their gustatory memory, taking them to remember the tastes that have founded current Mexican cuisine. Corazon de Maguey also offers a visual spectacle to those visiting, as each of its walls and bars are display typical artistic expressions of our country, as is the case of the engravings by maestro Joel Rendon.

We went with my family to this restaurant in the middle of Coyoacán.

The good: nice local, with a lot of mexican decoration. Nice food flavor.

The bad: turtle speed waitress, you'll need at least 1 hr to get your food.

The dish is really small, if you are hungry, do not come here.

My 2 cents: really expensive for what you get.

Visited Coyoacan and several locals suggested this restaurant among three others. Staff was great from the beginning and very helpful explaining the dishes. We wanted to try the "maguey worm" without ordering the whole dish and they arranged a small plate with one worm, avocado a herbs, without any charge. Entrees were good and big and just one of our plates arrived a bit warm. Tried the Mezcal, a very powerful drink that you must taste.

We really enjoyed tasting at Corazon de Maguey. The service was slow but the Manager was helpful and knowledgeable. The mescal was excellent. The prices were high, but we were in celebration mode.
The experience was totally ruined when we got up to leave. We left the amount of the bill plus a normal (for Mexico city) tip of small change. The waitress chased us out of the restaurant and said that we hadn't left enough for a tip and that in Mexico City you 'had' to leave a minimum of 10%. This is of course a lie (we live here). We paid up but it ruined the experience.

Mezcal is distilled from the heart of the maguey (agave) plant. This restaurant / mezcalería has a great selection of mezcal, which go together well with the traditional Mexican food served. Friendly service, beautiful colonial building on a nice location, the Plaza Jardín Centenario in centre Coyoacán. Highly recommended.

Corazón de Maguey is eye-catching, mouth-watering and time consuming. You'll wonder how 5 hours went by when you were just going to go for a drink. Their house mescal beverage is what keeps you going, and you'll want to have dinner AND take an additional order for the next evening.
