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

This house is very very impressive. Inside of it there is a Sunborns restaurant which is not so good, but the architecture of the house inside and outside is something to see.

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.

This building is definitively beautiful. With its landmark hand painted tiles covering every inch of this edifice, it has a storied history in Mexico City.The food, however, is lackluster. I had the "Famous Enchiladas Suizas" but "infamous" would be a better descriptor.Three narrow enchiladas are...More

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.
