Typical nice neighborhood with good restaurants. Should walk by Av de la Paz and around Plaza San Jacinto. Saturdays with paints show in Plaza San Jacinto, try Borolas cafe and shops with mexican souvenirs. Good restaurants in that area, also should go to Av Altavista, between Av Insurgentes and Periferico fast road. Nice area and more good restaurants, like San... More

With the Colonial architecture you can stroll around better on a Sunny afternoon and by the Bazar del Sabado área with little artisans, painters etc

Very pretty neighborhood! However doesn't offer much besides cafes and picturesque streets, so if you have limited time, I'd check out Condesa or Coyoacan.

Saturday mornings are full of life! Local artists sell their work, small markets, restaurants and a saturday's bazaar with a great mexican buffet are great to visit.

I enjoyed my day at the Art Market in San Angel. Two town squares are filled with various types of Mexican art. On the weekends the square comes alive with musicians who perform on a little stage. The square is surrounded by lovely restaurants. Please choose Saks, a lovely restaurant right on the square with outside seating as well as... More

We wandered to this neighborhood to visit the Diego Rivera Studio Museum (it was great), not realizing what a lovely neighborhood it was. There was a fancy hotel across the street from the DR museum (San Angel Inn) that looked fantastic for lunch or a drink. We walked from the museum to the saturday-only craft market nearby and enjoyed the... More

When Mum & Dad lived in Mexico City many years ago, this was Mum's favourite hotel & restaurant so we had to go back to salute our parents with a Margarita. The place is still amazing.

From greeting at front entrance to the maitre'd and servers, all are highly professional, efficient and attentive. It's a pleasure to go there and the food is absolutely fantastic. I've been there for business and family and with my wife probably going there once a week on average. The food is fresh, portions are good, you can't ask for better.

I went on a Saturday so it was busy but had lots of bustling atmosphere Excellent crafts both indoor and outdoor; regular artist sections inside with jewellery, arts and crafts. Flower festival on at the time which added a dimension Loads of places to eat at all levels Worth a visit for sure

Neighborhood Profile
San Angel
San Ángel is known for its artistic vibe and elegant details displayed throughout its streets, antique residences and haciendas where famous actors like Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent families used to live and that have now been turned into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An array of cultural and artistic activities are organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays when the San Jacinto Plaza and surroundings really shine as artists gather to exhibit a variety of arts and crafts, from paintings to clothing.
