Boy does this restaurant have a high opinion of itself. The menu reads like the egotitistical ramblings of a self-appointed Messiah of Mexican Cuisine. We were assaulted by waiters as soon as we entered with entreaties to order the Chiles en Nogada. All these different fillings, sweet or salted nogada sauce, fruit grown in their underground thermonuclear-powered orchards, pecans peeled... More

This restaurant will give you a very decent experience of Mexican food and it is the best option if you are in the University's Cultural Center area (Concerts, theatre or MUAC). Early days of this restaurants were better lately there have been ocassions when the dish arrives cold or the wine is not that great. Mole is average, salads are... More

This is a very good restaurant and highly appreciated if you´re going to a concert, or the MUAC museum. The food is great, has mexican flavors, with wonderful presentation of dishes. The service is good, but try not to get there right after any concert, since it gets really full. Decent prices.

Azul y Oro is a small chain of restaurants specializing in regional and seasonal cuisine. Their specialty includes Chiles Rellenos one of the zeniths of Mexican Cuisine. I went with some very knowledgable (and trendy) Mexican friends and was charmed. The outdoor patio overlooking a large fountain, with the new UNAM Contemporary Art Museum in the background and groups of... More

I had delicious tamales de chaya, although they came cold at first, I sent them back and waited just a couple of minutes for them to bring them hot. Capuccino was very nice in comparison to most restaurants, and couldn't resist the chocolate tamal for dessert...totally worth it. Very nice location in the heart of the University's cultural centre.

The university locations of this restaurant rely on their captive audience to overcharge and provide bad service to their customers. I have been to the Centro Cultural and Engineering location between 20 and 30 times and at least five times I have been served a dish I did not order and had to send it back. One time I ordered...

It is not usual to have such a good restaurant within a university campus, but the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, the UNAM, is not just any university and its campus is not just any campus. Apart from been one of the largest universities in the world, UNAM houses museums, hospitals, huge sports facilities, murals and monumental art, theaters and... More

The service is usually slow and below standard, and the food is uneven. One day you may get a great dish, and if you ask for it again some other time, it won't be what you expected. Its locations in the University campus (there are two) are very convenient, but I've just decided not to return.
