“Great mole and Margarita”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Brilliant Mexican food with Mariachis playing in the background. They serve massive Margarita slushy, and a big selection of Tequila.
I had a chocolaty Mole with a lovely tender steak and sweet potato and a strawberry Margarita.

“Great Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The food is spledid. The also had a Trio. The place is very comfortable. You have to try the sopes and the queso fundido con chorizo. The specialty of the house is the "Chiles en Nogada". I didn´t try it, but looked very tasty

“Absolutely satisfied”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Waiters all so kindly and swiftly received us and within minutes our drinks arrived.
Food arrived in a timely manner and was impeccable. Not even one plate was too salty unlike mexican food.
From appetiser to dessert, everything was fresh and delicious.

Even the words on the walls were entertaining.

I simply love this place and will definitely go back soon.

p.s. some tourists might get drunk and bit stupid.

“A little bit tourist !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Great place to have contact with Mexican food, but more for tourists traveling thru Mexico City then people want to know the cuisine. Despite that, the drinks invite you to an amazing environment to feel like a Mexican, try the famous chilles and the tequilas with fruits to know better the taste of these lands.

“Fantastic Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

The food and service here was excellent. I highly recommend trying the steak covered in chocolate sauce as it was fantastic. The music entertainment was really good as well but was a little bit loud which made it difficult to talk to the other people at the table. If you are looking for good quality authentic Mexican food then this is the place for you.
