Lovely dinner terrific food

this is located in one of the shopping malls but NOT a part of the mall. Fascinating menu with fresh ingredients. Be sure to bring your spanish dictionary as the staff didn't speak English but our "pigeon spanish" worked. Nice wine list.

I try the shrimps in tamarindo souse, the beef in Rockefeller souse, and beef with dark pepper ... Those dishes were awesome ... Its an expensive place but the cava was great... More

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.
