“Good food and service, overpriced.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

It is located in the Reforma 222 shopping mall so it has an excellent location and great fancy atmosphere. The food is typical mexican food with the speciality being "carnitas de puerco". So if you are a fan of pork dishes this is your place.

They also have a variety of other mexican dishes like tortilla soup and "milanesa". Along with a range of beer and flavored drinks. A must try are the desserts, recomended!

Service is overall good and even the manager will come to your table and ask how are you doing. But all this has a cost so don´t expect cheap prices.

Overall it was a good experience, even with the high prices.

“Overpriced and overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

I keep coming back to this restaurant as my hotel is next door and sometimes I can't be bothered to spend hours stuck in traffic just to go to an actual Mexican restaurant. However, every time is more disappointing than the last as the servings are very limited as well as the choice of food. They are far from flexible and it's always hard for me to find anything decent for me to eat there. Maybe they should aim for simplicity rather than high-end as not to appear so ridiculous to the average Mexican consumer.

“Authentic Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a lovely breakfast at the resturant. The service was very good with pleasant waiters and even the manager coming and asking if every thing is alright. The food was plenty and tasty. The coffee was not all that but ok. Enjoyed it
