I been here so many times, each one a delightful experience, they are a spanish base restaurant, but also they have some other stuff, but you must ask for the "langostinos" (prawn, king shrimp) any way they prepare it will be ok, if is your first time you should ask for the "menu" that includes six course meal, this way...

The Danubio is a great place to enjoy top-quality yet unassuming seafood in the heart of Mexico City. It's fairly easy to find close to landmarks such as the Palace of Fine Arts and the Torre Latinoamericana. It is a very populous area, filled with pedestrians, street sellers, traffic etc. In short - real city atmosphere, not the glitz you... More

Here you can find a long tradition restaurant, the food is good and the service is excellent, the attention, care for the customer, all very good. Food is not exotic, it's easy to eat, not spicy or too exotic; mainly meat and seafood.

A very traditional restaurant focusing on fish and seafood. Portions are large, the seafood and fish are extraordinarily fresh and well prepared. Even just a fish broth had a complexity and flavor that was unusual. My red snapper with garlic was among the beast fish I have ever had. Prices are reasonable. Service unobtrusive and responsive. A charming restaurant with... More

Unfortunately, we visited this restaurant on our last night in Mexico City - we wish it had been the first night as we would have certainly returned. We both had beautifully cooked fish - red snapper & roballo. Service was pleasant and attentive throughout in this typical, old fashioned 'Madrid style' restaurant. Recommended if you are a pescatarian.

I travel twice a year to Mexico for business, and I always enjoy to go there, as I know SATISFACTION in food, prices, and services are always GUARANTEED. This time I have tried new dishes, I started with a ¨Crema de Aguacate¨ after that I order a ¨Huachinango Besugo Olivo ¨and both dishes highly recommended, for dessert I order the... More

Dinner for seven was a standout of a Jan 2015 visit to Mexico City, but dinner for four this year was a great disappointment. Appetizers were canned, vegetables frozen, and fish quite dry. All four meals were subpar. From our two experiences and from reading other reviews, Danubio seems to be very inconsistent. Capable of doing very well, but not... More

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
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.
