Went for happy hour and the views and drinks were fantastic. Diego and Bruno welcomed us to the table and Maria was extremely nice offering advice on the menu. Alejandro came and took photos for us and overall it was a great way to spend...an evening. Highly recommend.More

Travelers from the UK and US had a delightful Valentine's dinner at the restaurant. A rain storm caught us entering the hotel where we were offer towels to dry off. The restaurant is on the roof, with enclosures that prevented the rain on our dining....A warming tower was placed near us to remove the chill of the rain; but once passed, the open air was sufficient. The menu offered many options and we settled on steak and fish. Excellent! Service was attentive and appropriate. Great evening.More

One of the highlights of having a drink or a meal at Terraza is the view of the main square and its Cathedral and National Palace. Food and drinks excellent. The huge margarita on the rocks I had was one of the best ever and...very reasonably pricedMore

The place was very neat and welcoming, the hotel has great interior design and architecture. I went to the buffet with some friends, to have breakfast. Overall the service was good, the staff was friendly and attentive. The buffet had a small variety of food,...but everything I tried was tasty. Nothing was over average taste wise, but it was okay. Coming to this place to me was more about the experience and the interior design of the hotel, rather than the food. In addition, I’d like to mention that before leaving, the waitress asked me to give this place a 5 star rating in trip advisor... which I didn’t appreciate much and of course didn’t do.More

The view is great, but the emphasis is on the buffet. We’re not fans of buffets. One evening (when the bar was closed) we did enjoy margaritas and empanadas here.

After a long day sightseeing all over Mexico, this spot was an oasis to relax and unwind. The views from this roof top are spectacular. At night it is so great to see the Zocalo all lite up.

This time I was greatly surprised by the "Terraza" at the "Gran Hotel de la Ciudad de México". It started with an experience in the lobby, themed on the 20's with a great stain glass roof that illuminates all areas. Just visiting the building results...delightful. All original details of iron, wood and stain glass make you feel like the fancy and elegant people that used to stay in that hotel. Old elevators are reserved just for hotel guests so you have to take a modern elevator to the 4th floor to get to the restaurant. After your registration, you are directed through an elegant spiral stair that takes you to the restaurant. Decoration is very simple and not too many tables so try to get early to be seated as you are there. The brunch bar with a big variety of food for all tastes. Fruit, natural juices, salads, all very fresh. Several dishes like the typical pork belly soup, barbacoa, carnitas, chicken in mole sauce and others. Pan cakes, waffles, or cereal also available. There's a bar where you can order eggs, quesadillas or fresh chilaquiles. Tamales are available as well as esquites, prepared with corn grains, mayo, Mexican cheese and chili powder of you are strong enough to taste this delicious treat. To finish you may have a tasty scoop of icecream in a cone. All this accompanied of great black coffee, pot coffee or hot chocolate. Service of the waiters is excellent even when it is a buffet dough. And if this is not enough, the view to Mexico City's main square is awesome. Definitely a great place to have breakfast or brunch.More

We stayed in the hotel, Gran Hotel de Cuidad (it is amazing) but the bar and restaurant are terrible. For a start we tried the bar; it took 3o minutes to get any service, another 30 for a drink we’d order and then an hour...and a half to get some simple fish tacos. We never went back. Then later in the week we tried the hotel, to start with they would seat us for 30 minutes after our reservation. Then the steak my wife ordered was so over salted she couldn’t eat it, and when we complained they just shrugged and handed us a very expensive bill for meal we couldn’t eat! So third time we tried the Cafe in the hotel; the buffet was expensive and not very good. Needless to say for the rest of the week we went out to other restaurants.More
