Lovely setting....in this very trendy restaurant....food was generally unsatisfying....my friends pasta with clams had exactly one clam....a sad state of affairs given the inflated prices. Hearts of palm salad was ok but was a dreary presentation I can't remember what I ordered as an entree and given it was two weeks ago, that is a bad sign. The wait staff... More

We came across this restaurant by chance. It is primarily a fish restaurant but also serves a few meat and pasta dishes. I had a risotto and my husband pasta - both vegetarian dishes. They sounded simple on the menu but were absolutely delicious and well presented. Homemade desserts were also excellent. The service was top notch and the environment... More

We have to wait for the table but no to much, the place is espectacular very quiet and the food is great, I order Pulpo a las brasas and love it. You can stay there for a while and then keep walking in El centro of México city.

We were both delighted with the result, a very good meal, well prepared We shared some excellent minature tacos to start and then had fish afterwards, my butter Tuna in soy sauce was outstanding.

Go to this place if for nothing other than to see the amazing three story living wall in the courtyard. It is a green art installation honoring a Spanish landscape architect with a funky old bicycle as a accent. But the wall, known as VerdeVertical, is not the only reason to go to this place. It has a great bar,... More

Fish restaurant located at same building with famous tourist place Azul Historico. They offer pretty wide choice of delicious fish dishes. Warm atmosphere, good seafood (not so mexican). If you tired of crowded Mexico-city streets - it is good place for drink a wine, eat light seafood and relax. By the way, Azul closed at Monday, but Puntarena open. Price... More

This restaurant is tucked back in a courtyard within the Hotel Downtown and is a really cool find. The breakfast was excellent, the service very good and the surrounding space absolutely stunning. The green wall (with added bicycle). The building is a really wonderful juxtaposition between historic and contemporary and demonstrates Mexico City's hip side.

The restaurant is in a colonial building that has been nicely renovated. The building also houses one of the several Azul restaurants. I love the building and the location is great if you are visiting the centro historico but the service is a bit snooty and the food is ok. The prices are a bit high but that's true of... More

Pros: Beautiful Courtyard Patio, the most impressive living wall I've ever seen, great location. Cons: Significantly overpriced, very inattentive service, low quality food We decided to eat here because we saw the restaurant after an incredible meal at Azul Centro (located in the same complex). The restaurant has a beautiful courtyard patio dining room, and a pretty bakery. Unfortunately, the... More
