We went there during our visit to Mexico city, because my mexican friend recommended us. It is pretty pompous place with last century interior. We went at around 4-5 pm, but the place was packed with a lot of extended families dining in no rush. It was a lot of fun to observe the crowd and waiters running around with old-fashion trays. I felt like in an old mexican soup opera. I really enjoyed the whole procedure of several dishes, but the food was ok. Overall it was totally worth going there (even thought kind of pricy) to observe people and tradition interior. As a bonus it is located right by Studio-home of Diego Rivero and Frida Kahlo, that is amazing piece of architecture.
