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

Now I'm taking a little time to make all the pending reviews so I will only say that the Chile en Nogada that I tried here is awesome, the mix of textures and flavors, very traditional, tasty, smells unique, and very colorful dish. Great, great, great.

I received hottest recommendation,especially conserning chili con nogada - speciality dish. For me it was too rich, even half portion was too much. The waiters don't speak English,so it was very difficult to make an order. The décor is very interesting, but service and food can be better.

Highly recommend - live traditional music, great decor, perfectly reasonable prices, delicious food (take the house specials) - desserts only mediocre. Only 5 minutes walk from the main square - a definite must for a trip to Mexico City.

A friend of ours from Mexico City suggested this restaurant for a few authentic dishes. I ordered the chicken mole and my friend had the chile en nogada. Neither of us had tried a chile en nogada before and were just so impressed with how good it was (savory, sweet, nutty and so many layers of flavor). The chicken mole... More
