“If people only knew !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This gem is hidden on the floor below the airport Hilton - which means convenient. The waiters could not be more gracious - they speak enough English but remember this is Mexico. The food is well prepared. Great place for a business meeting. Reasonably price. If you don't know South American wines, allow them to select. The Hilton itself is tired and run down but this helps make up for it.

“Good reason for a long stopover in Mexico City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Rumor had it that when dawdling about at the Mexico City airport, a fine meal could be had at Casa Avila. Airport food? Bleary-eyed travelers wolfing down a Sbarro's pizza while trundling to a boarding line? Na-uh. Well, Liz and I had six hours to kill and had the requite bleary eyes after a red-eye from TJ. What we experienced was a moderately priced, inviting atmosphered, comfortable breakfast at Casa Avila. We were pampered, invited to lounge as long as we wanted and served an excellent breakfast.

“The best choice in Terminal 2, Mexico City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

If you have enough time between connecting flights, the Casa Avila restaurant is the best option you have without leaving the airport. With a very good service, and a great kirchen, you will not be disappointed. All food is excellent, but the duck and the "paella" are easly the best main courses in the menu.
Enjoy!
