That was not the worse part . Myself and my friend got extreme food positing - from eating there . ( we did not eat... More

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

I have lived in and visited Mexico all my life and yet only in January did my sister take us to this wonderful restaurant that no on should miss. It is a couple blocks from the Zocalo and has a fantastic menu as other reviews have testified to...my favorite was their well known chicken dish, which I cannot remember the... More

The restaurant is situated in the city center and offers traditional Mexican gastronomy. I warmly recommend the "Chiles en Nogada", a special dish from Puebla. It is a large chili filled with meat and fruits and covered with a white sweet sauce. The staff is very friendly and make your stay enjoyable.

This restaurant is not in a good area, but well worth a visit! Having seen the reviews on here, we selected the Chile en Nagoda and it was a lovely dish (don't order if you don't enjoy sweet sauce with meat!). The service was very good and the whole experience was very good value for money as the atmosphere and... More

You come here for the history and the chile en Nogato. One is enough for two if you want a light lunch, and this is clearly an institution, in Mexico City. Our daughter also loved her lentil soup, soap de lentijas.

The paintings, colors and wonderful live music was like Mexico in the old days. We had a vegetarian Chile Nogada, that was delicious. The other dishes lacked some seasoning, and the tostada tortillas were stale. The margaritas were fantastic. The service was average; it seemed like it would be great, but one order brought was the wrong one, and twice... More

Traditional restaurant at the heart of Mexico city centre, serving authentic Mexican food. The old building, the decoration and the live music with a piano and violin made for a very nice atmosphere. Our waiter could have been a bit friendlier (we could not get a single smile from him), but he was very efficient, the food was excellent and... More

Following a guidebook recommendation, we made our way on foot from our hotel on the zocalo to the restaurant, about half of a mile. The place is located on a seedy street but once inside the place exudes warmth. We were shown to a table in the main downstairs room. Almost all tables were filled. We were the only people... More

What a beautiful restaurant! We ate there on evening and the atmosphere was really nice. I had the chiles en nogada and loved it.I had the small portion and it was quite enough. The musicians moved from table to table and the waiters were very dressed up. I felt like I had stepped back in time. The artwork on the... More
