I have been here so many times to always finding myself delighted by the food and the service. The barbacoa was delicious and so was the nata. The omelette was great. Coffee cup was always full. I love this place.

Great food and the best of old fashioned Mexican hospitality - just wish they opened earlier or we’d have gone every day!

The food did not live up to the setting or the service, both of which were very good. I had better food elsewhere for less than half the price and while the meal was not expensive by US standards it is for Mexico City.

This must be one of the best Mexican Food places in Mexico City. Los Chiles en Nogada are a must. Is also a good place for breakfast. Is a very nice place.
