The place is always busy. Looks like they have a variety of dishes with good prices. We ordered a cheese cake and lemonade with sparkling water. The cake was very good. The simple lemonade was difficult for them. The size wasn't what we ordered and it came with regular water.

The food was regular. I ordered a "pan cazón" that was a recommendation from the waiter and it wasn't to tasty. My friends ordered chicken and fish that were okay. The portions are huge, I would recommend to order starters and then share a dish. Some of the sides of the dish were a little bit cold. But we were... More

Enjoyed lunch/dinner at Potzollcalli my last day in CDMX. Was surprised by the huge drink and food order as well. Prices are at par with other area restaurants. Will totally visit again.

I had the super size Pozoli Rojo soup with chicken. It was delicious and it was an entire meal. Very reasonable at 90 pesos.

This place is popular, lively, and clean, with good service. I had some good, but not great, enchiladas. I dont think this is a place for a real culinary experience, but it served well for a fast bite.

We chanced on this restaurant on our first evening in Mexico City. We had no idea how or what to order, but the restaurant (seemingly run by a youngish bunch, possibly family) were very helpful, and I think we slightly became one of 'the sights of the evening', as people kept coming near us and just looking. We had chicken... More

The quesadillas with pumpkin flower were good; the one that was just cheese was blah. Huge glass of limonada which was good.

Since this place was so close to our hotel we decided to try both breakfast, lunch and dinner over our 4 day stay in Mexico City. The place is clean, the waiters and waitresses are very nice, they take credit cards and have a fine selection of craft beers. Try the pozole on a Thursday for 2 at the price... More

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.
