I ate here two breakfasts. My favorite was the Enchiladas Suizas with green sauce and filled with picadillo. Delicous! The service was good, the views are nice. Not too far from the Aquarium if you want to avoid all the palapa restaurants near there.

It was expensive and not particularly great food- mostly fried things. The patio was closed and so we had to sit inside which was FREEZING. You're much better off going to the zocalo and finding a place around there.

It was recommended by a friend, and we enjoyed it very much. The waiter was good and spoke English. We would eat here again. They made an excellent monitoring and the wine was very good.
