My tip: just pass by it to see its beauty preserved in the tiles. It's an expensive restaurant inside, but it is worth seeing the building.

The house of tiles is a really beautiful building, the only problem is its getting sinking, and you can feel a little dizzy in some points, the arquitecture is moorish style and something must see. Nowadays is used for a restaurant and store called Sanborns.

The ambiance is great. The restaurant sits in the middle of a beautiful corridor sorrounded by beautiful aztec and tile architec. You can go upstairs and see the view and the hallways are detailed with beautiful tile all around. They even have a pastry shop and a toy store on the first floor. Great spot for all the family.

The outside is somewhat interesting but the inside is really appealing. If you walk inside to the inner atrium courtyard restaurant, you will find a much more enchanting room with beautiful paintings and lighting than the rest of the house/store. 15 minutes is all you need before or after visiting Palacio del Bellas Artes or the post office.

This 18th century building now houses a Sanborn's which is a good place to buy souvenirs, which we did. It's also a good place to eat, especially in the courtyard, which you may have to wait a while to get seated in. Worth the wait.

Right smack in the heart of downtown Mexico City, this palace still exists and has been converted to a restaurant (sigh). The former home has a beautiful courtyard and expansive upper floors. Murals and tiles decorate every square inch and are in wonderful shape despite their age. When we were there an opera singer was serenading diners from an upper... More

I visit mexico city frequently just to go the venues and art, museums and to take pics, but even though I like the food at Sanborn´s this place has by far the worst service of all the restaurants in Mexico city, yup, you read that right . . The WORST; the way the waitresses hang around it´s almost as they... More
