A Mexican friend took us here and it was a lovely restaurant with excellent service and delicious food. It is located just off the Zocalo on Avenida 5 de Mayo. There is an extensive menu and the food we ordered was beautiful.

This is a superb restaurant with great food offerings. All our dishes were delicious and well prepared. We wanted to sample Mexican wines so appreciated the sommelier being available with wine trolley on hand to choose our selections by the glass. Well recommended restaurant.
