We stayed at the Hilton Reforma in Mexico City. This restaurant is in the
Lobby level. We kind of stumbled into it, wow! We at there for lunch but went back for dinner. The food was excellent and the service was unbelievable. Their house chocolate was very cool.

It was just great.

This is a great place to have brunch. The must tries are the hot chocolate and also the breads with cream. The menu has a ridiculously wide selection - everything we tried was great. If you have a flight to catch or just want to give your tummy a rest have the chiquillerias with chicken in a mixed red and green sauce. Yum and light on the stomach.

Great food! Do not miss its Nata and bollería. There are tasty vegetarian dishes hidden in the menú, like the dos quesos soup.

The best: an old and charming gentleman playing nostalgic "piezas" in an old fashioned piano. You can ask him to play music from Agustin LAra (Granada) or La Violetera, remembering the great Sarita Montiel.

Its popular and crowded on the weekend brunch. The restaurant is obviously a famous spot for both tourists and locals but its a bit dated and seems mediocre compared to some of the other spots nearby.
