“You must eat here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is a terrific Mexican restuarant. The food is wonderful, creative and reasonably priced. The margaritas come in punch bowl size glasses, the music is great(loud too) and the walls are covers with well known sayings that are sure to amuse. Of all the places I've eatten in Mexico City over the years this has to be one of the best (Hacienda Los Morales is a bit better but double the price too). The first thing you will notice is that this is not a tourist restaurant, it is full of locals. That should be your first hint that the food is really good. Ditch any diet you might be on and really enough a great meal here/1

“Taste Mexico”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Villa Maria is a pretty well located restaurant and a great option to go and have a couple of tequilas while you enjoy actual Mexican food. The food is not out of the normal, but it is definitely good authentic food, very similar to what you would eat at any other Mexican restaurant in Mexico. The service is a tiny little slow, compared to the standard of restaurants with those prices. The environment is relaxed, cheerful and, last but not least, mariachis.
If you want to spend a good time with your friends and experience a little of Mexican culture, you definitely should go.

“Authentic Mexican with a touch of folkloric”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Nothing more or nothing less than a wonderful choice of Mexican dishes, all with wonderful taste and excellent quality. We like the place especially in Sta Fe and go there often, both with family and business. Excellent service.

“Great margaritas, good food, and entertaining setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

We loved the huge and tasty margaritas. They made for a fun meal. The food itself was also very good, and the Mariachi band was very entertaining. They came over to our table and offered to sing whatever we wanted, and did a great job at that.

They also had some very interesting and delicious desserts. Definitely one of our more special meals in Mexico City

“Fun but touristy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

A fun lively restaurant, popular for birthdays and large groups. The menu has some great dishes, all the Mexican favourites. Service was mixed depending on which waiter you got; one very good, one awful! Our mains arrived while we were still eating our appetisers, and the stack of dirty dishes on the side next to our table wasn't too appealing, however the Mariachi band was great fun and made for a great atmosphere.
