The original location is inside a baroque style building from 17th century declared by UNESCO “Cultural Heritage for Humanity.” A precinct redolent of history, art, tradition and legend.

Slow service, bad food super expensive, a shame for the great location, that's all they rely to keep the doors open, there are more options in front of the plaza half block

Just visited Casa de los Muńecos, due to review and a recomendation from a friend, didn't have a great experience at all. -Food is regular, ordered Mole was ok expected much more from an "alta cocina mexicana" restaurant...and the price. -ordered chalupas...who were nothing more than salsa soaked tortillas with ridiculous small amount of meat. -there is NO kids menu....

Was taken to lunch here by business contacts. Great food. Had scrumptious salmon and for starters, huitlacoche tacos. Also a delicious rice pudding dessert, great coffee and fine service in a lovely outdoor patio setting.

We recently went for dinner and the food was very good: queso fundido with Spanish chorizo was delicious and the steaks were great. The restaurant is located in the courtyard of a large house with a museum and is nicely designed. The night we were here a Jazz trio was playing - their music was amazing. The one thing I... More

My suggestion to the chef is not to cook Mole to sweet, I asked for... More

We came here upon recommendation. The restaurant is in a beautiful historic building near the zocalo. We had the Chile en nogadas and the mole poblano. The food was rather bland and was very overpriced. The drinks were even more overpriced. The service was helpful but the food took a very long time to arrive. Overall it was a disappointing... More
