The restaurant was almost empty on a Wednesday evening. An old woman tried to sing Spanish songs but only succeeded to make a miserable impression. I was served burnt food and received no excuses from the staff. I went to this place following the Lonely Planet recommendation only to find out once again that their advice is either out of...

Very friendly staff takes you through a journey of delicacy in traditional Mexican Food. The famous Chiles en Nogada are very good, but the Enchiladas de Mole are amazing. People ask for Cecina and different kinds of fish very well made. Desserts are traditional too (there are no ice creams). It will be a mistake not to go and eat... More

Suggested by locals, we went there and it was a great success. Quesadillas, chicken, and specially chile en nogada; superb, it's said to be the original one receipt. The site itself is wonderful, very Mexican, with live music. A must.

The tour guide at The Palace recommended this restaurant to us; it turned out to be an excellent recommendation. The food (vegetarian for us) was excellent; the Sopito we had qualifies as the best such dish we have had. The Margaritas were excellent. The service was friendly. The prices were modest. Overall, an excellent choice.

We came for dinner because of the reputation and their Chiles En Nogada. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Consider ordering the medium sized Chile En Nogada because the regular size is huge. The service was excellent and prices very reasonable.

Big expectation, big disappointment. "Chiles en Nogada" are supposed to be the main specialty in this old and traditional mexican restaurant. However we found that the food was hastily prepared, with nogada too sweet and made of non peeled nuts. In addition, picadillo was prepared with grounded meat and lacking of traditional dry fruits. About other dishes, "mole verde" and... More

We went here twice. It was good both times. We had their signature dish - it was good. We also had great guacamole and good fajitas. It's about 600 pesos for two meals, an appetizer, and 4 beers.

This was only the second time I visited this restaurant. The first time was 30 years ago. This restaurant sits 4 blocks from the ZOCALO (the main plaza in downtown Mexico City). It has been open since 1860 ans has been serving "Chile en Nogada" daily since 1910 which is why we went. This dish is fantastic and would recommend... More

Nice and friendly staff in an old house with lots of ambiente. Food was good and enough. Very good was the tequilla with tomato juice. Would come back for a dinner with friends.

This historic restaurant is famous for its Chile en Nogada which is served all year round, not just during August/September or the National Independence days. It's an acquired taste; savoury from the ground meat and nuts, aromatic from the cinammon and other spices, tangy from the pomegranate seeds, rich from the walnut sauce. The menu is quite extensive and there... More
