I finally ate at La Taberna del Leon in Mexico City. I have always wanted to go and I think this is why I had so much higher expectations than The experience I actually had. Service was good but not exceptional, due to silly things, that at the end are the ones that makes the service exceptional, such as waiter... More

Every time I seat in this restaurant; there is a surprise in the table. Always new flavours, new smells, tastes from the ocean, bites from earth, great wines and a portion of an unknown soup spiced specially that day. On the heart of Loreto's plaza, an old house beholds this Restaurant. Cousy atmosphere, great service (old style), Don Daniel, the... More

The restaurant was great especially the cream of garlic that they serve in a very especial way and the empanadas of fish that they offer us at the beginning. Also we discover great Mexican wines that where quite astonishing

The food, atmosphere and service are good. Fish dishes better than others. The chocolate cake portion is so small that it almost seems a sample. The spoons for dessert you can't believe the poor quality it feels horrible while taking them.

It was a family dinner on Tuesday night. Most tables were booked but we've got a reservation. All the food was fantastic. Red wine at descent price. The place is an old house beside a shopping center. The service as in most Mexican restaurants is very good.

Went there for lunch with a family member. It is clearly a business lunch favorite. It is located in a renovated home that provides a warm environment for a meal. From appetizers, main course through dessert the dishes are carefully planed to provide good taste with visual comfort. The style of food is international, with some Mexican fusion, depending what...

The restaurant is in San Angel Inn, a very charming part of town and the interior is warm yet formal & proper, kind of your grandma's house. Service is good, although that is almost a constant on high end restaurants in Mexico City. The food offers old world/new world Classic/New Cuisine and both the seafood and the meat that I... More

Very classy place. Menu features Mexican classics, some dishes with an Asian-fusion twist. The appetizers tended to be Spanish. We had several appetizers including Spanish style toasted bread with tomato, Asian-style duck and scallion stuffed tortillas, and the freshest paper thin jamon serrano, which they sliced in front of the guests in the center of the restaurant. I had duck... More
