Good food, a bit touristy

Food was good, service excellent. Unfortunately, the band was too loud. It's a good place for tourist groups, not for a romantic dinner.

We arrived in the afternoon to escape the craziness of the big city! We were greeted with such a big smile and immediately seated…with no reservations! As we waited for our Sangrias to arrive the 3 piece band started to play beautiful soothing music. Our food portions were great, the steaks with tender cactus - YUM! and the drinks were... More

This place rocks if you like moles, enchiladas and other traditional Mexican fare. We have eaten here no less four times in just two trips and loved it every time. The live music is a very nice touch, along with all the wait staff in formal attire. But not to be fooled the food is quite excellent.

It is our third time at that restaurant and I always enjoyed their specialty "chile en Nogada". But this time the quality went really down. The stuffing was plain, the sauce not tasty as it used to be. A real deception!!! My husband however enjoyed "pollo ranchero en nata". Also they should invest in more romantic lights rather than these... More

This old fashion Mexican restaurant is situated two blocks next to the Zocalo. An old popular neighborhood built in the 1860's. Which type of clientele you can find here, are old as the restaurant. You have three nice gentleman playing live music from that long time ago as well, which ambiance more the type of restaurant. Taking about the food.... 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

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 Nogada. I have had interesting updated versions, but this... More
