Pricey, but worth it. Reserve or wait up to an hour to be seated. There's a children area where they can eat and all, so it can be a quiet meal for you and your party. Fabada is great!

Despite its magnificent interior, redolent of Versailles near Paris or St Petersburg's Hermitage Palace, the food in the restaurant has not always lived up to the building's architectural grandeur - but our visit in mid-July 2016 was a revelation and the food was delicious! The kitchen team hit the jackpot, producing fish and meat dishes which far exceeded our expectations... More

Delicious paella and the meat is clearly one of the best ive tried in Mexico, for Family meetings this place stands, the parking is kinda tricky if you park by yourself and the valet is way too slow. Other than that this restaurant and building are full of history and tales. The location give you the chance of seen many... More

This is a most unusual place. Located conveniently between the Palacio de Bellas Artes and the Zócalo, just off the pedestrianized Madero, it has a most impressive colonial exterior (although actually founded in 1863). There is a permanent collection of art around the ground-floor walls, with a huge painting entitled "Alfonso XIII, King of Spain 1886-1941." Wait a minute, what... More

The place is big, crowded, noisy and we did not care. The food and the service make you forget the noise and the crowd. Excellent quality, flavor and service. The food speaks for itself. Just make a reservation in order to avoid long waitings.

This is a lovely and well known place in Mexico City. It is traditional Spanish food well prepared. They have an English language menu but the staff does not speak a word of English, because of this we did not get what we ordered. The building is worth a visit and the experience is memorable, just for non-Spanish speakers be... More

Incredible surroundings, old school food, and good service. We went for lunch and it felt like a scene out of The Sun Also Rises - a 3 martini lunch. Oxtail was wonderful.

This is one of the few places that I know where you can have the traditional Spanish 'cochinillo' definitely a must while being in town!

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
