The restaurant is on the first floor (2nd US) of an impressive building but isn't well sign boarded. The building is beautiful (although no photography allowed) and the food is excellent. We had fish on one visit and it was excellent, all the meals were superb and the service was very good. We did cause confusion when we moved tables... More

The prices for breakfast are cheap and I realize why: - flavorless fruit. - raw omelette and we asked for to cook it properly... It never returned. - cold dishes which supposed to be hot. - spoiled cheese. - and the worst of all: the service. They didn't even care about all the mistakes. I'm so disappointed since the place...

This is a traditional Spanish restaurant in Mexico, with very well seasoned and delicious food, good service, nice deco, very clean, at an amazing price. Extraordinary if you are in the downtown area.

This place is truly beautiful. It's the kind of place where you immediately pull out your camera as soon as you walk in the door. Then, of course, a prim and proper lady pops out of the corner and points out the sign that say no photos (just pretend you don't read or speak Spanish, and you might get one... More

I don't know where to start. This restaurant is placed in the very heart of Mexico City. What is that mean. Pretty crowded, and kind of difficult access. The building is beautiful, a piece of art. However taking about the food that's a different story. Portions well served, fatty as Spanish cuisine is. But with not a very good flavor... More

This building dates back to 1863, with spanish architecture, high ceilings, glassworks, paintings and more. The building alone is well worth seeing. We went Sunday December 21, 2014 at 2.00pm. The place was packed, many tables were already reserved but there was room for us. The service was very good. The prices are good for such a beautiful place. The... More

I loved dinning at El Casino Espanol. The building is beautiful and it is one of the nicest in the city. The food is delicious - fully authentic with excellent quality. Service can be slow but that should not deter you from visiting. The restaurant can be packed on weekends, so booking is highly recommended.

Much as I love the varied cuisines of Mexico, there's a special place in my heart for Spanish food, so was delighted to learn of this great place, to supplement the excellent rooftop garden cafe at the Spanish Cultural Center behind the Cathedral.
