Disappointing

We had dinner here on Friday evening at 9 P.M. The restaurant was near the hotel and it was our first evening in town. We were the only customers in the restaurant. The decor was interesting - sort of medieval Spanish castle. The service was attentive - just the waiter and us. I can't say we... read more

This restaurant is beautiful, the services is great and the food just perfect. Absolutely nothing wrong or bad to mention. Just a peace of advices, if you ask for a cab make sure they call an "official taxi" because the others are super expensive if you're a tourist

Tucked down a side street, you don´t expect this restaurant to have old colonial charm, some large stained-glass windows and small fountain courtyard. All of these elements support a dark and ´old-world´ Spanish feel, apt for the cuisine and the medieval dinners they host in the evening. When myself and family visited mid/late afternoon (in between peak lunch and dinner... More

A very old restaurant near downtown, cooking lechon Candido Style, with the complete cutting with a plate show. Regardless of the theatrics, it is an outstanding dish, worth the traffic and trouble of going to DF Downtown. They also have some festivals that bring rare spanish dishes to Mexico, such as cocido and olla podrida. Nice wine list, and service... More

The decor is a bit overdone , but the meat disjes, cabrito etc are a good reason to visit. We went at a time when there was no show on purpose. Overall it was good.

Ok maybe a bit harsh and maybe not the best place to go the first night when you are tired and hungry BUT no where did it say we don't start the show until 9pm. We were seated at around 8-8:15pm. We sat and sat and sat. The bread came and it was so stall and dry OMG. Then the... More
