This is a traditional European-style (non Mexican) restaurant, dating from the 1930s (walls are decorated with notes written by famous Mexican figures about the place, some of them with quite anodyne messages). You feel a very nice taste of times gone. The fish soup ("sopa de pescado") is SUPERB, but all seafood here is excellent. A little crowded, not exactly the spot for a romantic rendezvous. Prices are ok. Recommended to make a reservation in advance.

This Basque-Mexican place, A short walk from Bellas Artes Metro station, has been in what is now a gritty corner of downtown Mexico City for a long time. If coming all the way here, I recommend splurging on the sopa verde and the langostinos (order them al ajillo). Expect very professional old fashioned service and traditional food.

The Danubio's restaurant is one of the best place to eat international food! I'll come back again the next holydays. If you visit Mexico City, you have to eat here, the prawns are delicious! :)

Can wait to visit Mexico City again and eat in this fabulous place, I've never tried such an excellent, fresh and quality sea food in any other place. If you ever decide to go there and try the exquisite dishes I would recommend you everything on the menu, but specially the prawns and the besugo Olivo fish, and for dessert try the Bartolo cake again one of the best cakes I've tried.
