It's always crowded but you can get a table at any time. The food is incredibly delicious and they have the best langostinos in Mexico and I even dare to say the best I've tried in the world. It's pricy but totally worth it

Great seafood in a 1940s ambience that takes you back in time. A lot of history, many politicians and Central bankers, waiters that havebeen there for decades and some of the best seafood in town.

Nice place to eat, it looks like a very traditional place. Prices are not that cheap compared to other places downtown, but I had a nice experience.

This is a traditional mexican restaurant with great and honest food. You don't come here for the food alone you come here for the Atmosphere as much as you come for the food.

After visiting downtown Mexico City's Zocalo, Bellas Artes, Centro Historico, Cathedral, this can be a good stop to try real Mexican food among locals. A mix group of people from politicians and business men to family groups love this restaurant. Try the green seafood soup and the garlic shrimp. Its always crowded and casual.

It was a great "cherry on the pie" after a wonderful walk through the historical center of Mexico City on a Sunday morning. Opera house, old post office, main square and visit to the Palacio Nacional with the wonderful murales of Diego Rivera and a Mayan relics exhibition. The food was delicious, the service was good as it was great... More
