I went here for a dinner with a visiting associate from the USA a couple of years back. I was not that impressed. The food was OK and sometimes very good (they do have escamoles or ant eggs which is not common in DF restaurants). The place was too packed with corporate types for my liking and the atmosphere seemed... More

The food is traditional, excellent and beautifully presented. The portions are fine, so even it is not cheap, it is fair. Nice entertainment with folk groups and Mariachi.

I was in Mexico City for work and was treated to Villa Maria. I wanted authentic and pretty well got it. The mole was unreal ...even tried the fried grub worms and ant eggs, they are not as scary as they sound. The Mexican coffee after dinner is a must do if you like cinnamon - a bit sweet but... More

We went on a Tuesday night w/ a large party & placed a rez as we were cabbing it there. Lucky to get in. The place was packed & is a real tourist & family destination. Mariachi's were entertaining & atmosphere was lively & festive. This is everything I thought a cantina should be! They have a menu in English... More

We enjoyed the large margaritas. I had two traditional lemon/lime ones on the rocks that were so refreshing after a day of touring that I had two. They did not taste strong, but they made me quite jolly. The food and service were good. The mariachi band stayed on the staircase away from where we were seated, so they provided... More

Margaritas were very good and huge. Mariachi band added some zest to our wonderful evening. I loved the decor of this place but the signs did... More

If you like tacky signs, pushy waiters trying to hurry you through your meals and huge margaritas containing less than a thimble of tequila, you will love this place. The food was OK - the music load and obnoxious, the drinks awful. Think Chi-chi's, if from the U.S.

It´s a beautiful and comfortable place to invite anyone if you want them to get their first excellent impression of Mexico. Me and my family had the luck to eat escamole which is season dish made of ant eggs.
