The service is very friendly. The sommelier suggested a nice Mexican white Chardonnay that was good for a light lunch wehave. The pasta with shrimps was very good and the tuna with vegetables was ok.

I still dream of this meal. My friend ordered from the breakfast menu. She enjoyed her meal as well. Service is excellent. If you are near the Cathedral, it's... More

I ate here because there was a concert at the Zocalo and it was close to impossible to get out to anywhere else. The service was excellent and the wait staff wee very attentive. I asked for my dish to be cooked well done and it was not well done. My friend was not impressed with his meal as well.... More

During our various stays in Mexico City we are always revisiting this great place in the Historic District. The atmosphere is nice, the food is excellent, the service is great, - and sometimes you have romantic music. What do you want more?..

A very welcome spontaneous find after walking out of Balcones de Zocalo and their indifferent service. Lovely staff and delicious, well priced food. Highly recommend.

A very nice restaurant, very close to the Zocalo square with a variety of dishes and fair prices. We tried empanadas, chicken soup and chicken salad. All great, served with a choice of pans.

Service is excellent, the attention and food are great, I think prices are not that high considering the good service. It's a formal place so guests are mainly adults, and you should reserve and attend on time for your table, not doing so will lead to excessive waiting and bad mood for you. I recommend you to try the soups... More
