The place itself looks very nice, and they had a guy playing piano, which adds to the atmosphere. Service was slow, and this was at 4PM so not even rush hour. When ti came time to pay, the said their system was down and would...More
This famous building with its beautiful blue tiles is also the home of a fairly popular restaurant chain. It's a great place to eat if your stomach is having problems coping with Mexico's spicy food. I've been there several times for this reason.
We had a beautiful lunch at the 'House of Tiles'. This house is now turned in as a local department store, Sanborns. The centre of the house is a beautiful restaurant, serving Mexican food. We felt like it had the Harrods atmosphere, as there was...More
Every time I visit the D.F. I stop by to admire this place and eat if I'm hungry, this was my 3rd visit. The interior is beautiful and the place is always busy with patrons. The prices are very reasonable and the food is very...More
With our guide we walked the Central District on our way to the National Palace. We stopped at the House of Tiles for a photo outside and some history. It was great to see this building with its rich history next to an art decco...More
Went out specifically looking for this building, and didn't realize that the place we had just purchased chocolate from was it. There's no exhibit to view inside. You can just walk past it on your downtown travels is enough.

The food in the restaurant was really disappointing and overpriced. The Maitre d' tried shuffling us (unsuccessfully) to a side room away from the main restaurant, and to be honest, I wished we hadn't stayed to eat.
The building itself is stunning and worth visiting.
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
