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.

Recently spent a week in Mexico City and this was by far one of the best meals we had. The service was attentive without being intrusive, menu varied and interesting enough to satisfy almost any desire, food was well prepared… Overall nothing bad to say about this restaurant other than it is a bit hard to find.

This is THE place for spanish food in Mexico, there´s a lot of places with spanish food, but specially this from entree to dessert is just amazing, cocktels, wine and service is almost perfect. the seafood cazuela is a must, the lechon wow!, almost everything, the service is somehow slow paced, but must be there when you are in Mexico...

If you are tired of Mexican food try this place where you will enjoy a spanish dish. They have chistorra, octopus and tortilla de patatas (potato omelet) It gets crowded during the weekends with a family atmosphere and during the week with local business diners.

This restaurant, Casa Espanola, is located in the Casino Espanol, a colonial building from the late XVIII century, just a couple of blocks from the main square Zocalo. The restaurant is on the first floor, the setting is elegant, with white tablecloths and excellent service. We had breakfast there, they do not open for dinner. The food was prompt and... More

I went there with my 2 sons (13 and 9) for lunch and were all had wonderful experience. The building is beautiful, the restaurant ran in a traditional way with all the pomp and circumstance that such a meal deserves. The menu is very large and truly amazing, very hard to choose from so many delicious dishes. I had Pulpos... More
