Excelent food at a reasonable price. Tortillas are cooked in front of you so they are probably the most fresh ones you´ll try. Order chicarron with guacamole, shrimps with rice. Spicy sauces are served as side-bowls so you can mix it up at your wish. Exelent view of Zocalo area adn a good spot to try some pictures.

Situated on the third floor of a MXC alley overlooking the cathedral and main temple, you'll climb every single one of those high-altitude steps to get here. Much deserved tamarindo margaritas reward those who make the climb, as well as quite tasty food with a view of MXC's most famous sites. Don't miss the fabulous duck carnitas, but expect a heavy bill.

Nice setting, but regular food,
but extraordinary price.


At the end the waiter even decided his own tip.

The food was quite good and well-prepared.

Drinks here -- apart from beer, which is average-priced -- are very expensive. They offered me a margarita and I blindly took them up on it; it was delicious (and fairly large), but it was also almost $9 (converted from pesos to dollars), which to me sounds very high for a native drink in a country where things are generally cheaper to begin with. I looked at the wine menu, thinking that I might get a bottle with dinner, but a bottle that costs $7 on sale in the US was over $30 on their menu. Bottom line: be prepared to pay if you want booze with your meal.

The service was very good and the waiters were extremely polite.

I was here with a group of six, and at the end of the meal the waiter took it upon himself to add a 15% service charge (written in with pen) to the check. There was nothing on the menu that said that they would automatically add something for six people or more. I found this to be very presumptuous, first of all because in Mexico the usual tipping is 10-15%, so they started us out at the high range, and second of all because we were not very high maintenance customers. In fact, we bought a lot of little extras, and it would have been a nice touch (and a prompt for me to give a more generous tip) if they had left one or two of those off the bill. Besides, they also charged us a cover charge of 20 pesos each, which I did not recall seeing on the menu.

The waiter then proceeded to ask me to pay the "service charge" in cash, and I got the impression he was also hoping I would add a tip besides. At this point I felt like they were just seeing what they could get away with. As a result, I did not add anything extra in tip and I also insisted on putting the whole thing on my card.

End result: an otherwise lovely (if not a bit expensive) evening ended on a low note because of waiters who were unwilling to take the risks that are associated with their job, and trust that good service will get them a good tip without their having to force the matter.
