For some reason this restaurant wants to occasionally charge an arbitrary "cubierto" (cover or "table" charge) to patrons already paying for food and drink. I've eaten at dozens of other restaurants in the city and have never been insulted by being asked to pay 20 pesos per person after I'm already paying hundreds of pesos for food and drink. Even...

Villa Maria is one of this place you shouldn't miss, a staple within the traditional restaurants of Mexico City. This place serves original, tasty and well-presented dishes. Mexican cuisine the way you imagine it, exactly how you want it. The restaurant itself is quite big and colourful. The walls are adorned with mexican quotes about love, life and partying and... More

I did enjoy Villa Maria's excellent food another 4 times in my last business stay at Santa Fe, Mexico. As always the food quality is superb and enjoyable. The only odds: the slow service and the noisy ambient. You will not make a mistake selecting this place, specially if it is an informal event. The "infladas de requeson" and "chile... More

Villa Maria was well reviewed and deservedly so. Food was great. Mariachi band playing on Tuesday night made for a festive, if loud, ambiance. Still, they were able to find a spot that was not too loud for my wife (who has a hearing problem). It's really a local place - only one waiter had English well enough to help... More

I won't definitely remember this restaurant for their food. No, not really. I tried out several tacos and they were just okay. This is the most Mexican kitsch restaurant we've ever been: touristic, loud because of the Mariachi (which is entertaining but I couldn't actually talk with my friends). I will remember it for the size of their Margarita. Big,... More

This restaurant is what you would expect as an upscale Mexican restaurant. A touch touristy but nicely done in total. Typical and nicely decorated. The mariachi band limits some conversation you will experience what you expect The apps were varied and delicious. Margaritas abundant. Highlight was the "sleeping monk" dessert which was like sugared wafers topped with vanilla ice cream... More

I love the sofisticated dishes they present in the menu and combined with a pair of flavoured margaritas the experience is amazing! I highly recommend this restaurant for foreigners

The setting is great, food tasty and very well presented. A Mexican band was playing while moving around the tables. If you want a fun Mexican dinner, then this is a good choice. If you look for a quiet romantic dinner you need to look elsewhere.
