If there was ever a reason to listen to trip advisor, it would be this. We stumbled across this restaurant overlooking the plaza. It looked stunning so we opted to try it out. Disappointment. Service was poor, totally ignored and then food brought to us (we hadn't even ordered). Grumpy waiter. Food was mediocre in comparison to what we had... More

The Casa vieja is actually quite difficult to find....Since it's a second-floor restaurant, you have to find the door to the stairway, which is right next to a little shop selling ice-cream.The restaurant itself has both indoor and outdoor seating. The latter is actually a very long balcony arcade overlooking the zocalo and the cathedral. At night, it's downright impressive!... More

We were going to skip this place based on the reviews but a local cafe owner said it was worth a try. It is upstairs by the main square, accessible via the stairs by mcdonalds. The view was spectacular and our server was good. I liked the shrimp ceviche. We both had the house baked pork for the main. It... More

The main reason to come here is the view, which is incredible. Food is good, not great, and slightly overpriced. But seafood is fresh.

Overpriced and salty food. I ordered the fajitas de pollo and it was so small for MX$138, maybe like 20 strips of chicken. My friend ordered the pechuga de pollo casa viejo style and it was very salty!! Overall, I don't like this restaurant - terrible food on a good location. Will never recommend!

Came here for some cocktails and for the view. Got both. View was beautiful, overlooking the park and the cathedral, cocktails not so much. They weren't bad but not good either and pricier than at some other places in town. Still - view makes a visit worthwhile.

At first I thought it may improve......sadly no ! Every time I take guests there it just keeps getting worse if that's possible! The food is dreadful. Nothing seems fresh, the chef cannot cook,or even present it well. Every dish has dried up and stale ingredients. One of the worst place I've ever eaten. Even the idea of enjoying a... More

Food..was overpriced, under seasoned, all around not worth the trip. Only thing good about the place was the beautiful view over looking the plaza.. Even the service was horrible..

View is probably the nicest in the old town, nice to look out at the Cathedral. We were lucky enough to wtch the annual parade. Food was better than average but was a little expenve. Sf were attentive but nt over zealous. Could be excellent

I guess I should have known by the amount of effort that the man on the street was having to use to push people in, and his general lack of success. I have to agree with barbuosa below. The starter of fish pâté "to share" was lack lustre and lacking in much flavour. My main course of crab and crab... More
