Went twice during our ten days in Condesa. Really good contemporary Mexican - sopes were especially memorable. Good bar. Very lively. Interesting and varied menu. Highly recommended.

This place is absolutely phenomenal. The setting and design are quite typical Condesa, but the real prize here is the food. Everything we ordered was simply extraordinary, Mexican classics taken a few notches up. We even came back the next day for more, something we never do when we travel. Not incredibly expensive either. Go there, you won't be disappointed.

We had a fantastic dinner at La Capital this evening. It has a great ambiance - dimly lit with just the right music volume. Everyone was extremely attentive and provided honest recommendations on how much and what to do. In particular, we informed our server that a couple of members of our party were gluten sensitive, and he ensured that... More

This is an awesome place with a great ambiance but most importantly with GREAT food and service. From the appetizers to the main dish, everything is tasty and delicious, portions are great, not too much, not too little. The guacamole and the Cebiche de Camaron one of my favorite appetizers. Highly recommended place. !!!!!

Had lunch here today for the first time... The best way to describe "La Capital" is: Excellent Mexican food in a retro Mexican Cantina! I suggest you start with the guacamole with banana, potato and yuka chips, and follow it with a "chile en nogada" which was delicious!! The service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. It is... More

Food is wonderful with an ample menu of eclectic Mexican new cuisine. Cocktails are great and wine list full of Mexican wine, which I loved me being from the Baja region. Ambiance is great and the decor I loved. Enjoy!

In the Mexican Soho area full of hipsters you can find this great Mexican restaurant very stylish. The best thing to do is order many things to share so you getr a chance to enjoy all the different flavours. Fun place.
