Great Octupus Ceviche, Fixed Price Menu Left Much to be desired

I'm not sure if it makes a difference, but we went for late lunch. The service was really good and if you're looking for a classic restaurant that has been around for a while, this is your place. However, the lobster was overpriced for its size and the fixed price menu was filling but somewhat... read more

Dinner for seven was a standout of a Jan 2015 visit to Mexico City, but dinner for four this year was a great disappointment. Appetizers were canned, vegetables frozen, and fish quite dry. All four meals were subpar. From our two experiences and from reading other reviews, Danubio seems to be very inconsistent. Capable of doing very well, but not... More

Remember those movies where you see these mafia guys dine in the nicest family-style, cozy Italian restaurants, and you knew the food MUST be amazing because of the demanding clientele? Well, this place reminds me of those scenes (without the gangsters, of course). The food is outstanding, and I'm not a guy who raves about seafood. For me, seafood typically... More

This restaurant has been around forever. The seafood is their specialty. The green seafood is a delicacy, the oysters, fish, you name it... Simply delicious.. but the Crayfish are amazing... The secret ? They only serve females from very cold waters. You wil come back from them, over and over again. I have been their guest for as far as... More

This is one of the best seafood restaurants n the city, frequented by locals. Tourists have not discovered it yet. I had an excellent ceviche, filet of roballo and flan. Attentive service and cozy atmosphere. I return here every year for at least one visit.

Went for a business lunch - the menu was good but not extensive, and very little option but fish - which was great but a selection of other foods would have been appreciated. I had cerviche, soup and snapper - it was tasty but not more than that. Wouldn't rush back.

My colleague and I specifically chose Danubio for our evening meal, waiting in anticipation all day. Because my colleague is Italian, dinners tend to happen later as a matter of course. So it wasn't unusual for us to open the door to Danubio at 9:35pm on a Friday night ready for a meal. Unfortunately the first sight on opening the... More

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.

This is truly the best restaurant in the city!! First of all, the place is in downtown Mexico City so it is a great opportunity to experience one of the most amazing places on earth, but due to the horrendous traffic of the city i would STRONGLY recommend taking a cab or the metro because trying to find a parking...

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.

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
