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

My hubby and I stopped in Mexico city after our trip to Cabo and planned absolutely nothing. While waiting for our taxi, I asked the bell boy at the hotel of an authentic Mexican place near the Cathedral in the main city square. He highly recommended this place and we both loved it. Tiny little place that's decorated so cute!... More

When I first looked this place up I found out about the national dish Chiles en Nogada and I just had to try it. We had heard this place does great authentic Mexican food and my partner and I decided to order two dishes and share so we could experience more than just the nogada. Problem however, being Aussies and... More

This restaurant should have a higher rank. They serve traditional mexican cuisine, beautiful decor, incredible service. Total was just under 900 pesos, about 50 american dollars for 5 adults and a toddler, would of spent double for the quality of food

The "Chile en Nogada" is a traditional Mexican dish made with coated green poblano chiles stuffed with a mixture of meat and dried fruits, covered in a white walnut sauce, and garnished with red pomegranate seeds and parsley. Green, white and red are the colors of the mexican flag. We like them uncoated. Excellent dish, enjoy it with a glass... More
