Tve service of the hostess was terrible, later improved by the waitress and the manager. Not a lot of options on the menu. Flavor is good. View is amazing.

I visit this restaurant every time I'm in Mexico City... I love the peace and quiet, I love the architecture, I love the views, and the service is great... Sure the facility is a little shabby at this point and the food is more of a 3 star experience, but the overall experience is still wonderful. Where else can you... More

I just love this restaurant ! Beautiful views. I toke my husband! his first time. He loves it to ! Food is great. It was a little noisy I believe the restaurant shouldn't allow people play their own music. That happened next to us! And it's unpleasant music from the restaurant + people's music. Overall great place!

This is one of the beautiful restaurants in Mexico city. By the lake, open glass, wine and mexican sunshine. A truely fine dining experience. The food options are limited, but they are delicious. They have a huge wine selection. Must visit for all food lovers.

We had a business dinner at this restaurant with a group of 20. First impression is fantastic, great location & ambience. When we were escorted to our table, I was disappointed. They put several folding tables together and covered them with a bunch of table clothes, resulting in a huge square-shaped table (think dance floor in the middle ;-) It... More
