A classic in the heart of the Condesa neighbourhood!

We did have a bit of bad luck with the risotto but I have to be fair. The food is generally very good here and the atmosphere is great. Its an old classic in this neighbourhood which is always buzzing and has a great variety of restaurants, not to mention frequent new openings. The lasagne was very... read more

Organic, hand crafted, made with care results in incredible flavours and consistences. I loved the restaurant itself, they have different spaces, inside outside with different decor, in a great location condesa one of the hot spots in Mexico City.

Definitely an upscale establishment with THE best posole I've ever experienced. The rest of the meal was very good but this soup just blew us away! The terrace is exactly as described...a very pleasant atmosphere with a non-touristy ambience...it felt very local and the clientele appeared to be primarily professional types, but we 3 old gringo touristas felt right at...

While in San Miguel I tried this restaurant so when I saw this location I was excited to visit. Food was still excellent but not the same which was ok. Great location and the ambience was perfect for a nice dinner.

In the heart of the Condesa artsy neighborhood, this was one of the first restaurants established more than 22 years ago. The aroma of fresh baked bread receives you as you go up the stairs to the best terrace in Condesa. The variety of the menu makes the selection process harder since everything sounds amazing. I started with a huitlacoche... More

Gorgeous isn't usually a word you use to describe a restaurant, but it really fits Fonda Garufa. The interior of the restaurant is very nice and towards the back they have an enclosed patio (or at least, it feels like a patio) with the walls covered in plants and flowers. It's gorgeous and very relaxing to sit and eat your... More

Fonda Garufa is situated in a nice part of Mexico City & the restaurant has street side seating on the ground floor. We were upstairs in a nice setting overlooking the street with large, open windows. The bread was amazing. Lovely flavours, sourdough, olive & raisin to name a few. The homemade tomato salsa & herb oil dips were great.... More
