The owner of the restaurant helped my coworkers and I pick out the best cuts of meat, two cuts from Uruguay and one from Argentina. We also had four different empanadas and she talked us into the...

I visited gotan, craving a good steak... It more than exceeded my expectations!!! After catching the subway from condesa I had worked up quite an appetite! The staff were wonderful, talking me through all the cuts of meat and even providing me with a desert made from viviannes nonnas recipe! This place is amazing! I will be back without doubt... More

I've made many business trips to Mexico City, and Gotan remains one of my favorite restaurants. The food is delicious, from the steaks to the empanadas to the delicious salads. The pasta that accompanies the meals is also delicious. The owner is charming and takes the time to explain all the options, most of which seem to be family recipes(also... More

Gotan was, by far, the best restaurant we had during our trip to Mexico City. The staff was amazing. They told me that the meat was imported from Uruguay. Really, really good. I would go back now!

The food here was absolutely spectacular! It was easily the best meal I ever had in my whole life. The restaurant is very close to the Monumento a la revoluccion. It's off of one of the side streets to the east of the monument along the street with all of the Mexican flags. I had a pasta dish to start.... More

This Argentina restaurant had good food and great service. Unfortunately though it was difficult to find - my cab driver wasn't familiar with the street the restaurant was on and had to ask 5 or 6 people on the general vicinity for directions to find it. They also do not take cards of any kind so come prepared. The closest... More
