“A place for people-watching”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The service is good, the food is good, but mostly it's a good spot for people-watching at the edge of the Zocalo. Be prepared, however, to brush off a street vendor at a fairly high rate. Some of the street musicians are good, but most are mediocre.

“A very good place to hang out at night”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is the best place if you want to hear music in the zocalo at night, but it is also the one with the longer lines if you want to seat in the plaza, the food is very good but not that authentic, they have all kind of pizza and also Sushi in the same place although they are run by other companies

“Best on the Zocolo”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

This was the best restaurant I tried on the Zocolo, and I ended up going back several times. Good and helpful service, pretty good food, and a nice view of the activity on the Zocolo. The main drawback was the constant pestering by vendors, as others have mentioned.

“Nice location and food”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is probably the best moderate priced restaurant on the Zocolo. Very good service and good food - wide variety on the menu. Vey much recommended. This is located on the zocolo and is a busy noisy place but great for people watching.

“Turístico”
Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

A nice place to have a drink in downtown and feel the local ambiance. Choose a table outside, but there are a lot of people trying to sell you things
