Went with my office mates The food is Spanish wannabe and kind of crapy If you have a family avoid going during weekdays otherwise you will find a Godinez with his movida

The place is old, good service, most of the time you´ll find a table; they try to be courteous and prompt with the service, drinks are fair enough,period. The environment is kind of wanabe office employees, the boss with its assistant escort, and other areas family place. Food, that supppose to be the key element it is not, the "salsas"... More

We came here a Sunday afternoon by accident and we were pleased with tasty food and very attentive service. Nice atmosphere, Mexican/Spanish influenced food, and friendly service. A must!

This place is on the side street next to the City Express Insurgentes Sur hotel, and across from the Fiesta Inn hotel. We had drinks only so can't report on the food. The service was excellent and very attentive. There is valet parking. There is live entertainment at certain times.
