The food was beautiful and very tasty! The restaurant was packed when we were there but the waiter wasn't stressed at all - just extremely professional, friendly and personal! Great restaurant!

This restaurant was recommended by our airbnb host and it was so good that we went twice during our 10 day stay - the only restaurant where we did that. We enjoyed the shrimp tacos as a starter to share, and catch of the day for a main.

This restaurant is beautifully decorated, very modern and cozy. Our server Jose was simply exceptional, providing us with what we believe was the best restaurant experience we encountered during our three week trip in MX yet food did not match. We ordered the ceviche which incredibly over salted. I could not believe how someone can add so much salt to... More

While we typically are more impulsive when choosing restaurants for dinner, this trip we did make reservations for our Mexico City dinners. We chose La Capital on the basis of its reputation and TA reviews. While this was our first night in Mexico, in hindsight La Capital proved to be one of our best chocies!
