We had the cochinita pibil, guacamole, and flan and it was one of the best meals we had while in Mexico City. The waiter we had, Elio, was extremely kind, attentive, and was able to help us understand the menu. The restaurant was full of...More

Was here with 3 friends. Very friendly, fun atmosphere. Good drinks. Our waiter was very helpful with our poor Spanish skills. 2 of us had chicken with mushrooms special, which was amazing. The only negative was that the portion size was so big we couldn't...More

This was our first restaurant we visited during our stay in Mexico City and we really liked it. Unfortunately, no waiter speaks any English but they still try their best to recommend the best dishes. We had Tacos with Cochinita and it was delicious! We...More

This place has old-school waiters, very dedicated. It might not be the cheapest option, but it's worth it to try some of the more traditional Mexican food. Sopa de lima is great here, as well as panuchos de cazón, two of my favourites.

This is a classic cantina in the heart of La Condesa. It has excellent cantina food, including, but no limited to specialties from the Yucatan like tacos de cochinita pibli, papdzules, and panuchos. The service is excellent. The ambience is relaxed unless there is a...More

We had dinner here one stormy night, and it was great. We had the best service we had anywhere in Mexico City. Our waiter even bought us out a taste of something he thought we would like (which we then went on to order). The...More

If you want to try some good from the Yucatan peninsula, this is the place to go. Very nice atmosphere, excellent service. It is pricy but I reckon it is worth every single peso. I highly recommend a jag of horchata for drinks, a main...More

This is a cantina-style diner. The staff didn't speak much English, but were able to recommend some very nice dishes. We dined here twice to explore the menu. Good value for money. We were there on Valentines Day, and even got given a rose! The...More

Since discovering champiñones con ajo en Mexico, when I saw something similar on the menu in this Spanish restaurant I knew that was what I was going to have to try. The mushrooms were not your usual crimini shroom dish... I think they were chanterelle....More

Easy to explore either on bike or foot, Condesa offers
a great variety of activities and places to visit
while admiring its neo-colonial architecture. Diverse
restaurants vary from regional to global along its
streets, while local bars even let you craft your own
beer. The urban yet relaxing vibe let visitors cycle
or stroll on the Amsterdam Circuit.
