“Perfect end to our first visit to Mexico DF”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This is simply a wonderful restaurant. We went for lunch at about 2pm and were lucky enough to get a table before the room filled up. The service is attentive and highly professional. We both ordered the roast suckling pig (sorry I don't remember the Spanish translation) and it was ssssoooo good. Not a dish for those on a diet or those worried about their general health but you only live once. A monster plate of pork with the crisp roasted golden skin covering the pieces. Nice sides of roasted red peppers, tasty scalloped potatoes and a mildly spiced quacamole. I am not that familiar with Spanish wines and mentioned this to the maitre'd. He promptly invited me back to the wine room and helped me select what turned out to be a very pleasant pairing for our meal. Prices not at all unreasonable for the quality of the food, the ambience of the room and the service. We will certainly be back if we return to Mexico City.

“Excelente”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Have lunch there and the food was superb. The place and its ambience is great. Tip - you may also want to sit outside which overlooks the atrium. The glass ceiling is definitely a work of art to be appreciated. And this is by no means anything wrong on the inside dining area. It certainly has its own elegance and charm. One last tip, the place only serves lunch until about 5pm.

“A touch of Spain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

This is an elegant, well priced restaurant. It closes early in the day, right after "comida". The wine is good too, and well priced, and from Spain.

The food is good, but the price makes it taste a bit better.
