Our first day in Mexico and we were hoping to find some good guacamole. We found some GREAT guacamole! Yum yum yum. No margaritas, but a nice cold beer was just fine. What a fun place. We will be back!

Loved this place. Order tacos, 1 by 1 and try as many as possible. They are all great. The Tortilla soup is a most. Aso, try Pastor con Queso. The Choriqueso is also excellent Really recommend it. Price is also part of the great experience

Easy to explore either on bike or foot, Condesa offers
a great variety of activities and places to visit
while admiring its neo-colonial architecture. Diverse
restaurants vary from regional to global along its
streets, while local bars even let you craft your own
beer. The urban yet relaxing vibe let visitors cycle
or stroll on the Amsterdam Circuit.
