Whew... We went at 5pm on a Tuesday which is typically a quiet time in a restaurant around these parts. Not so here. The place was mobbed with almost every table taken. We were lucky we didn't have to wait for a table.
But when we sat down, we were infested with waiters who wanted to take our order mucho pronto, before we even had a chance to really look at the menu, and which was given to us in Spanish.
Ever try to order from a menu that looks like the Rosetta Stone? Good luck.
Well, we ordered our food after tossing darts at the menu and it came quicker than a burger at In and Out. The food was much better however. No complaints there.
Would have liked to enjoy my meal at a more leisurely pace and while there was nothing tranquillo about it, I'd go back. Especially when in a hurry!

We ate at the bar because we did not make a reservation. You can get a table by 2 pm.

Very good seafood in a large setting....lucky for that...it fills up fast. We shared ceviche and it was very well done. We also had the house specialty...fish with two sauces. A good place to have fresh seafood in the heart of Mexico City....go early for lunch so you won't be disappointed.
