The whole family went to eat on a Sunday afternoon, the atmosphere was fantastic, Mariachi´s, Jarocho trios and more. Play area for the children and my grandchildren were well looked after. The service was impeccable, the food traditional for Vera Cruz and the quality and variety second to none. One of the best Mexican meals I have had in Mexico... More

I don´t know if it is bad luck, but I went non less than 4-5 times to this restaurant, just for taking my mother in law born in Veracruz. When asking for a certain dish, the answer is sorry Señor, we don´t have it today. Asking for nothing hot (chile) in my food (I simply cannot have it), they mistakenly... More

This is bistro style food at mid-range restaurant prices. We had two entres and two mains - both which we're big portions and poor quality. With sangria the bill was $600. My main was a fillet mignon - it was covered in a huge amount of salt, with floppy chips and squishy veggies swimming in margarine as sides. Between me... More

Been here every time I have visited Mexico City for over twenty years. I keep coming back since it has always been so good. It is worth the price.

In the 1960s I used to be a habitué. It is a fun place to go in a group, but couples can enjoy it too. Not a "mariachi" place at all: the music is "tapatio" from the Veracruz area (i.e. no trumpets).Decor is extravagantly Mexican and the service excellent. Food is good but not startlingly so. A touristy place...but so... More

Nice mariachi restaurant. Bands were great. You pay 60 pesos per song, but it is fun. Food isn't that great, but you go here to experience the Mexican tradition.
