Old world style

This is a fine choice for after touring the museums and spaces in the historical district. Around the corner from Santa Domingo. Sweet old building and dark wooded interior, and traditional all male service, that matches the food. This is a very good place to order the very traditional Chile en... read more

Went there following good reviews, but was not really impressed by the venue. It's a typical old style restaurant, maybe sixties or seventies era with an old colonial atmosphere. . The food was OK. Nothing really exceptional. A bit flat, typical home cooking style. The menu is very restricted. It puts in evidence their flag ship dish, and that's it.... More

Definitely a favourite restaurant in Centro Mexico City, known for its traditional cuisine. We stopped for lunch and noticed an interesting dish being served at the next table. We asked our waiter and she noted it was called "Pic Hero de Res with Pechugo" (soup with potatoes, carrots, guacamole, small corn cobs and chicken). I may not have translated it... More

We had lunch here as we wanted to try some traditional Mexican dishes. The building is really old and beautiful and it is worth coming here to just so you can have a look around. It has a real feel of ageing grandeur, with staff to match. We were given pages of information about the building to read but unfortunately... More

La Hosteria is a Mexico City landmark and serves up excellent, classic Mexican cuisine. From massive Chiles en Nogada (you can get a half order) to Chicken mole (served both as a guisado and in enchiladas) the portions are large and delicious! Were it just about the food I would have rated the restaurant Very Good, but the ambiance and... More

The Hostaria is famous for its chile en nogueda, a classic dish usually available only in September and October. The Hostaría serves chile en nogueda all year long but perhaps not quite as good as one can find in Puebla, where the dish was invented to conmemorate Mexican independence.
