The building harks back to the glory days of Zona Rosa and is as charming as advertised. As others say, this is mainly business-types on weekdays; a tourist not dressed nice may feel out of place. There is a basic menu and daily specials, which are much, much more expensive. Margaritas are very good. The food is sort of Mexican-international as I imagine it would have been during the 1950's with a European influence, but not fusion as we now know it. Actually quite tasty and attentive service. I had read about the duck; it was not on the menu, but they had it and is a great shared appitizer for the table, with good home made tortillas.

Nice outdoor setting in the center of the Zona Rosa. Popular place for the business community.
Loved the around sound of the canaries. The appetizer fish tacos and the dessert were excellent, but the shrimp plate was overpriced and not good...this was disappointing- when mentioned to the waiter (perhaps a little too late) he did nothing about it. I would have expected at minimum acknowledgement from the manager.

Casa Bell location is excellent for business people, tourists and families. Service is impeccable and the food is worth the visit. The style is great especially on a nice day as you sit in a Mexican Patio surrounded by birds in their cages. The fountain provides and added pleasant murmur. It is also spacious enough so you are not bothered by conversations from other tables. I would love to return to Casa Bell on my next trip to Mexico. Bilingual staff make it easy for non-Spanish speakers.

It's a good place for business meetings if you are in the Zona Rosa area. It's apparently where the who's-who get a more "informal" meal. It has a wonderful courtyard for dining. They are famous for the "exotic" Mexican dishes such as escamoles (ants' eggs) and tacos de maguey (maggot, deep fried). I've tried their fish dishes quite a couple of times, though not outstanding, are good value for money.
