“The best Mexican Restaurant EVER!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

I don´t have words to describe my experience there. We were invited by friends to this restaurant. We got a table in the lovely terrace. The atmosphere since you put a foot inside seems fantastic. They have ballet parking service. It was full and the place is very nice decorated with funny quotes everywhere even in the toilette rooms.

The customer service is just fantastic. Our friends actually made us try a lot of things of the very varied menu.

As entries we had quesadillas of "huitlacoche", pumpkin flower, cheese, tacos al pastor, sopes (delicious!), we got a huuuuuge Margarita, the speciality of the place, which is made with tamarind (wow!)...and for main plate we got the Chiles en Nogada.....OMG!!!! Simple the BEST, the BEST of all my life. I am Mexican and not even in Puebla, the city of origin of this dish, are so good that the ones I tried here.

Well...all the dishes were absolutely amazing presented and with good portions. The prices are just a little bit high, but the food you get worth it! You will be not disappointed at all.

It was a wonderful occasion to show to my German boyfriend a bit of our true gastronomy. He loved every single plate and also we loved the mariachis that were playing all around the restaurant creating a lovely atmosphere.

If you go to Mexico City, don´t hesitate to come here, actually, if you really want to get excellent food and service, you must come to this place.


If they still in the way they are, your satisfaction is guaranteed!

“Excellent authentic restaurant with music.”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Go to the one in Polanco. This one has live mariachi and its great fun. The place is loud and lively. Food is very good. Service attentive. Very yummy margaritas - they are enormous so order the regular.

“The Mexican response to the Munich Hofrbraeuhaus.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Well, I might be exaggeriting a bit in the title. But this restaurant is as "typically Mexican" as possible. Interestingly, it is not only touristy. Yes, many tourists go there, but also many Mexicans. The foold is very Mexican, you have a large choice. Margaritas are gigantic (but a bit too sweet to my taste, and not the best in town), but the live music, in particular the house Mariachi, are excellent. You can get very bad Mariachi bands in town, but this one is really good, and they move from table to table, and do not linger tooo long either (otherwise you would not be able to chat with your partner / this a place to take friends or to go with a group of people...)

“Nice place, a bit expensive for the food”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

It is Mexican food, good quality, good service, but its value for the price can be better.

You can get some live music, some times Mariachis are in the hours. the environment is a bit typical/traditional, yet, elegant. Deserts are creatively served

There is valet for your car
