The wine selection and the meal were both quite good, but not extraordinary. The free entrées were a nice touch, the flavored breads had me pleasantly surprised, and the staff was very attentive. However, none of the dishes we ordered involved either especially expensive ingredients or a special difficulty to prepare, so I don't think the price was justified.

Looking at online reviews this place seemed like a good candidate for a relaxed but good meal, after a long day climbing Pyramides. This turned out to be very wrong. This is not a cheap place and the menu is limited, which is normally a good sign, so we expected fresh, well prepared food. My lamb arrived luke-warm, and the... More

Terrible. We waited an hour for a table, then another hour to be served. 3 of 4 dishes came wrong, we sent 2 back, one was only microwaved which made Serrano ham like bacon and egg yolk hard. We sent it back again and came back with the same ham. We sent it back and one person missed one breakfast.... More

This is a nice restaurant, in a nice neighborhood (Polanco). Nice staff, food is good, but it is a lit bit overpriced. Nice couvert. Live music when I was there.

The food and decor is good. We checked the price of the wine and the waiter - who spoke good English told us that it would be about USD 6, but when the bill came he had erroneously added a extra water and charged $15 wine.We did not want to create a scene, so did not dispute the bill.

The breakfast selection and quality are just great! It has a very relaxing atmosphere and the service is good. The best part is the price! I couldn't believe how good was the price compared with other restaurants in the area. That is one of the reason that you need a reservation even early in the morning.

Everything we ate here was wonderful. We were a big group though & the service was extremely slow, even though we seemed to have waiters galore! We dined on the terrace which was lovely.

Good food, great menu, great atmosphere, but cold food. Rather long wait but we were okay with that. Was excited to try some Mexican breakfast but by the time it got to us, mine was rather cold. Nice breads to start, good fruit, refreshing juices.

The restaurant is located in one of the best neighborhoods in the city and it is big and nice. I was there on a Sunday morning and it was crowded and there was a line outside. Any Mexican plate is worth and the portions are good.

This place came recommend from both some local folks and some Mexican friends back home. Definitely worth the visit. The ambience is wonderful. The food was delicious. They serve mimosas although those cost (fyi) and if you buy a combination plate you get fresh fruit, juice of choice and coffee or tea. Everything was very fresh. Serivce was superb. Will... More
