I simply love the seafood. The freshness of the oysters, their magnificent Seafood soup and their exquisite lobsters and crawfish are just a sample of a restaurant that has been around forever. You have to visit it. It is fairly close to Bellas Artes. The easiest bet is to arrive by taxi. The area is not easy to access. You... More

Consider one of the best seafood restaurants in Mexico City. Langostinos are absolutely a great dish you may order. Do not expect to find a refine or fancy restaurant, it seems to be stopped on the 50's. Try to be there before 2:00 0'clock if you don´t want to wait for a table. Waiters are just fine but they do...

Somewhat expensive but very good sea food place. Not much to say about the place itself, do not expect much. Does not feel high end by any means more of traditional restaurant, I do recommend it although neither for a business gathering or romantic evening.

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.

A Fish and Sea food speciality restaurant, located in the historic downtown, Mexico City. Founded in 1936 by a Basque, reason for which part of its international menu are from this speciality. Very good food and service of white table cloth, no formal dressing is required. The ambiance is traditional old and simple, with the touch of family and business... More

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.
