“Great little place”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

I was visiting Polanco and saw this cute place on the main street where all the nice restaurants are located. I went there alone, the place was full but they kindly gave me a nice table. I ordered the azteca soup and the shrimp tacos. both dishes were really good and service was excellent. I definitely recommend this place.

“Mezcal Tasting”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We had late dinner reservation in an adjacent restaurant, so met up with friends for drinks. I wanted to taste local drinks, the servers brought out many different mezcal, set up an impromptu mezcal tasting, served it "bandera" style.

Also paired it with different salts.

Chased it down with local Mexican craft beer, dark lager.

Did not eat here.

Nice and quiet, quaint, with outdoor seating and was very impressed with server that on a whim he set up mezcal tasting, was knowledgeable about menu and different regions and food styles of Mexico.

“fabulous little local place”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Went there last night for dinner as I'm in Mexico City again for a work trip. A really nice change from the usual business restaurants I end up going to with colleagues. It's quite small and charming. The food is a mix of a few mexicanized international dishes and local dishes with a bit of a twist on them. The artichoke is well worth a try, and their carrot cake was fantastic. My pasta with a zucchini flower was oversauced but a minor complaint as it tasted great. The staff was really helpful when I needed assistance translating bits of the menu and offering suggestions.

On the whole if you want an experience with good food, a bit of charm and a place where you could either meet friends and have a night out or just bring your book and get a away from things with a good meal I can't recommend this place enough

“Neighbourhood Restaurant”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My daughter works just a block away, so when we meet for lunch, we tend to chose this great little restaurant! They always have a selection of delicious "aguas frescos" and the dishes are real home-cooked-meals - we love it!!
