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

Definitely my favorite restaurant in Mexico City...beautiful old building and decor, lovely to have live piano acompanying our meal and besides their specialty of Chile en Nogada (which my mother Loved...although was a bit heavy for her to finish alone) I've enjoyed many of their other dishes like Lomo en Salsa Verde and their Betabel salad...Great place to sample traditional...

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

I got this place with my best honor citizen friend because he likes a lot, lemme say that it's a nice place, I ordered cheese soup and pork home style and was really good. If you like German food this is the place. Was my first time but I'm not crazy about this kind of food. Good service in general... 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.

This restaurant is located in Mexico's City Downtown. If you want to taste the authentic Chile en Nogada, I recommend this restaurant. Even though it's a seasonal recipe, you can eat it all year long. I think that the only issue is that, in general, even though the staff service is fast, I would recommend a warmer traditional Mexican service... More
