After walking a bit that day my friend and I decided to rest a bit with a coffee and some dessert. The interior of this magnificent building is a must see. I would return to go for dinner as the food presented very well.

Before I start I want to say I went here in Summer of 2010. So we went here because my dad wanted to show us this palace that he had seen many times growing up in this city. So we go in and it was beautiful. We go up the elevator into the restaurant and immediately they start to cater... More

We stopped here thanks to TAdv, as we were wondering where to eat on a Sunday Afternoon in Mexico City's center, and we got a really good surprise. The entrance guides you to an elevator where in the first floor you'll find this old but nicely conserved restaurant with white tablecloth everywhere. Food was just great, all the "Entradas" dishes... More

Based on the excellent reviews on this site and based on my love of Spanish food from my student days of living in Spain, we had to visit this restaurant. Just a short walk after seeing the Catedral and Templo Mayor. We made reservations and arrived at 2pm. We had the full Spanish lunch- sangria, tortilla espanola, ensalada mixta and... More

This restaurant is on the second level of the building. Walk to the back of the main level to reach the elevator. On the ground level is another dining area that serves cheaper fare in a more informal setting. I visited between 3 and 4pm on a weekday, and all of the diners were wearing suit coats and ties or...

We went here for lunch and one of our best meals in Mexico City. I had read about it on Gayot which said that you can get a 5-course meal for about $ 15.00. There must be two restaurants because the one dining room we were in did not offer this, but it was offered in a less formal room.... More

If you like traditional Spanish Cuisine then this is the place. The food and service are very good. It is very busy on week-ends, make sure you have reservations!

This is simply a wonderful restaurant. We went for lunch at about 2pm and were lucky enough to get a table before the room filled up. The service is attentive and highly professional. We both ordered the roast suckling pig (sorry I don't remember the Spanish translation) and it was ssssoooo good. Not a dish for those on a diet... More
