This restaurant is not to be missed for the view. The food is quite good and not that expensive. The staff is fine. Traditional Mexican cuisine, Guacamole, Ceviche, Tacos, etc. but you can escape with a drink

The restaurant is located on the sixth floor with a view to Mexico´s central square were the National Palace, the templo mayor and the cathedral are located.It is full of movement and a required visit when in Mexico.

Food is good and at reasonable price it is a very good option when downtown.

If for breakfast an additional treat is the rising of the monumental flag in the Zocalo.
