The conversations around us were mostly in English. The waiter spoke perfect English. He pushed us hard to order wine with lunch, and after we declined, someone else turned up with a bottle and gave us another sales pitch. When we were paying the check,...More

Everything at Nico's makes you want to come back for more. From the service to the food and cocktails, you'll understand why this restaurant is always busy. Some of the best Guacamole I've ever had, freshly prepared by your table. And also, if for no...More

It truly is one of the great restaurants in Mexico City. It is small and unpretentious but the food is fabulous and the service is superior. I live here and I love fine food so I have eaten in any number of the top restaurants...More

Nicos Mexico is a truly unassuming place. It is in a regular neighborhood on a commercial street. It is not terribly well identified and a little hard to find. The inside is very spartan with simple tables in a white room. But then you notice...More

I loved this place. We went for breakfast. Service was amazing and the food was great too. My girlfriend had the eggs in salsa with black beans on top and I had the thin steak with tortilla chips in salsa and refried beans. They also...More

Went to this place with my brother who is a glorified foodie and I was impressed. The place is unassuming, and when I say "unassuming" I mean it literally. Be prepared to look for a place that sits inside an old building that looks more...More

The Mexican food is incredible. The seasoning right at the point without being overwhelming. The wine chart is ample, with a very good selection of Mexican wines, but the most amazing are the prices. Based on my experience never more than twice the store prices....More

What can we say about Nicos! From the table-side serving of Guaco to the freshness of every food item, it was amazing. Unlike other reviews, they did have an English speaking server so we had no difficulty in choosing from the menu. The dry soup...More

If it's flash and dazzle you're after, look elsewhere. And if you want to see or be seen, this spot likely isn't for you. But if you're searching for authentic, casera cooking with both a firm grip on Mexico's culinary history and an eye fixed...More

Home of the Tepeneca people, Azcapotzalco has remained
faithful to its roots even as time has passed.
Beautiful details abound throughout its gardens,
houses and other historical buildings such as the Casa
de la Cultural. The works of Siqueiros, Diego Rivera
and O'Gorman are in abundance and should not be missed
while exploring the area. Walk through the streets and
have a taste of the neighborhood, which can be found
