We had lunch here and the setting is very pleasant on the 6th floor of a hotel overlooking the Plaza de la Constitucion. We had non-alcoholic drinks prepared with fruit and herbs and all were quite good. Also good was ceviche and a dish with tuna and watermelon. A guacamole with crickets was reasonably good but a red snapper was a disappointment. The fish was unremarkable in a kind of tomato sauce and the accompanying salad had a very spicy dressing that I did not care for.

Excellent choice of food, and plenty of it! SO enjoyed the Mexican offerings (chilaquiles were so very good!) and the best hot chocolate of our whole stay. Nice view of the cathedral as well. Recommended!!

Visited twice during our stay.Service was attentive,friendly and very professional.It's a covered rooftop space,so it's bright without being too hot.The food and local wine was all excellent.It is popular with tourist as well as locals,so booking advised.Sometimes restaurants rely on their stunning views,and in the January sunshine,it was lovely,but this establishment ticks all the boxes.Will visit should we ever return to D.F.
