A very beautiful space, but with an excessively tourist decor. The menu is basically Mexican, but the dishes are not very well prepared. With respect to the beauty of the building where the restaurant is based, the food could be better prepared. Prices are affordable.

We went here for breakfast so that we could get to see some of the interiors of this splendid building. Firstly, for some odd reason they don't provide menus but instead instructed us to access them using the barcode on the table. This didn't work and in the end we had to use the phone supplied by a waiter. Our meal was good, albeit relatively expensive and not significantly different to cheaper places we had been to. We enjoyed good coffee and the fruit juice was good but it wasn't chilled (I like it to be chilled).
A word of warning, after paying our bill we waited for the waitress to return with our change but this never happened. This did rather annoy us!

This beautiful building is a place to see, not a place to eat. Sanborn's cuisine will always fall short of your expectations. In general, this chain (library + restaurant) is not the best place if you want to enjoy good Mexican cuisine. I no longer eat here after many disappointments.
All the tiles one sees here were made in Puebla, on the staircase one will see the mural by José Clemente Orozco.

This 18th century baroque palace is covered in Talavera tiles – just stunning! It currently holds a Sanborns department store with several restaurants; we ate a delicious meal on the mezzanine. Highly recommended for the food, the shopping, and the architecture!

I was made aware of this place while standing in line for a taxi at CDMX airport. The exterior of the building is covered in blue and white colonial tiles, very interesting design. The interior where the restauarnt is located is in a courtyard, nice open space. The restauarnt inside is a Sanborns, which is a franchise and locals love it. The concierge at my hotel advised me to avoid the place, as there were other restaurants much better.

This Colonial structure was owned by the Counts del Valle de Orizaba until Mexico's independence.
The structure is covered in blue mosaics from Talavera Puebla.
Since the early 20th century, the house has been owned by Sanborn's.
They operate a beautiful restaurant there. The food is good and the service is very nice.
We shared a Wiener Schnitzel with potatoes and tossed salad (delicious).
To drink, we had lemonade with spearmint.

My wife and I had late-night drinks and snacks here on August 10, 2023. Our server - I didn't get her name - was nice enough but clueless. Our choriqueso was tasty but our mojitos were mediocre. The Casa de Azulejos is a beautiful building. It's a tradition but it may be living off its reputation. Don't eat here if you're in a rush. The bathrooms are free and clean. Their postcards and trinkets are nice. And I've always liked its bookstore.

I was very happy someone from our conference stumbled upon this place and recommended it. Lunch for 4 was only $35 USD. The fact it was in this beautiful courtyard spanning three floors was extra. We sat on one of the higher floors to avoid some of the tourist as a tip!

My tour guide recommended this place, and so I went. It was quite busy because it was towards dinner time. I had the privilege to be close to the Christmas tree and the violinist. The staff attended to me immediately and helped me order my dinner. Lots of people enjoying their dinner and the entertainment. The restaurant is huge, as there is an upstairs and downstairs sitting. Food was terrific! I had the chance to celebrate my Christmas dinner here. I am pleased and most of all, relaxed!

Very nice building outside and inside. Apparently as well very popular. We have been served in the big hall with mirrors. The food was average and the service was not stylish like the house itself. Go in an see it, maybe have a drink.
