Don't miss the Caldo Verde and Crawfish

It's an.awesome restaurant, one of the famous in Mexico City since 1936. It's located quite near Bellas Artes and the Zocalo. Don't miss it.

I went with my family. We spent a nice Sunday at Mexico City downtown and ate at Danubio. Delicious food! Try to get early if you want to avoid waiting too long. It is a very famous and crowded restaurant.

My husband and I really love this place. Is very traditional and the food is very tasty. But if you want to go, be sure you have a reservation, get on time and definitely get by taxi, because the place is always crowded and has no valet parking. The restaurant is located in one of the most complicated streets of... More

I have been going to this restaurant since I was 2 years old. Every single time I go there, everything is really just great. They have great grilled prawns.

As recommended, I tried sopa de mariscos verde, langostinos a la plancha al ajo y mejillones al vino blanco. I have to say the taste of langostinos is not so amazing as expected. However, the green seafood soup is indeed delicious and full of rich content, although if there were more soup than seafood I would be more pleased. The... More
