Great location, perfect service, wonderful ambiance and very good food. This restaurant is surrounded by historic buildings in the heart of the city. Ask for a dry Martini and see why this place was chosen to be part of the set of 007 SPECTRE in 2015. Please, try the "crema de pistacho". It was terrific!

We sat out and enjoyed the warm evening. The James Bond theme wasn't what attracted us, but it was amusing none the less. The staff were friendly and attentive, they spoke Spanish and English with ease. Our two slightly overtired children were made welcome too. The food was very good, particularly the main courses. My Mum was pleased to get... More

Took my wife and my Mother to this superb eatery, little did I know that this restaurant was the scene of the latest 007 movie specter, not only that the setting was like going to an old hacienda mixed with an elegant Parisian restaurant (never been to France), only to Spain, kudos to our waiter Gabriel Jimenez who took the...

Can't recommend enough. The staff were helpful to a fault and the food outstanding. In addition to the classics, their menu also features traditional Hispanic fare. It is also the location of a scene in the James Bond film Spectre. We returned here numerous times during our visit to Mexico City.

We went for the first time and food is good but little expensive ! You paid for the view and is worth if you want to enjoy the view, I suggest to eat outside. Service is good and they have valet parking but take your time because it take a long time to bring your car back. Restrooms are clean... More

We stopped here for a coffee and it was a wonderful experience- it turned out that James Bond filmed here in spectre! The cappuccino we had was served in a tall glass with cinammon on top. We were offered a selection of pastries and couldn't resist sharing a concha, a sweet, very light bread with crisis-crossed top. They invited us... More

After the Zocalo and Alameda area for Diego Rivera murals, this restaurant was close and quite good.

This is very convenient if you are in the Museo de Arte Moderno, or the Telecommunications Museum in the eastern wing of the MAM. Some of the dishes can be a bit pricy, but the most important thing to take into account is the spicyness of the chalupas. Personally, I am not big on spicy food, and I regretted not... More

The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
