“Wonderful place...should be rated higher!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The menu was outstanding...extensive, interesting and made it hard to chose! I'd rate this restaurant higher than others such as El Cardenal that are in the same part of the city. We ate at both and Los Girasoles was much better!!

“Our favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This place has really good food, and it is not the normal Mexican fare but really interesting interpretations of Mexican regional food. We've eaten there both times we visited Mexico DF in the last two years. Great service.

“mostclasical mexican restauran”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

for exellent mexican high cousini you must visit this. Its not the more cheap or the more expensive place but its just downtown and the escamoles (ant eggs) with chipotle and mango sauce in a green tortilla are just the best!

“I must meet the chef !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

The food is divine !!! Worth very buck. I had t-bone steak and the meat just melted off the bone ! It was just amazing ! My entree was the paramount of my experience there. Deep fried (crumbed) banana and pork with spinach ontop an amazing creamy sauce! Perfecto! To finish I had white and dark chocolate covered strawberries . Presentation Magnifico !

“Best to go for its location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Located right next to the la plaza Munal so its a great stop after visiting the museum Munal or the postal office. Not the most high quality food but its a good price and mexican cuisine.
