Our first day in Mexico and we were hoping to find some good guacamole. We found some GREAT guacamole! Yum yum yum. No margaritas, but a nice cold beer was just fine. What a fun place. We will be back!

Great tacos, they even have a really nice vegetarian option. The best part is watching the guy make tacos al pastor - he's like a taco magician! The waiter was a bit sleepy but maybe he had a hard night ... I'd totally go there...More

Loved this place. Order tacos, 1 by 1 and try as many as possible. They are all great. The Tortilla soup is a most. Aso, try Pastor con Queso. The Choriqueso is also excellent Really recommend it. Price is also part of the great experience

Tacos al Pastor, what can I say? How did I ever live without these? I love the rotating spit, I love how the servers can chuck the pineapple from a impressive distance, causing it to land just so on the tacos. It's so simple, yet...More

The real spirit of street food is to go to one of the ubiquitous nameless and menu-less stalls that punctuate the city, sitting on a stool on the pavement or standing. The problem is that unless you know where to go, the experience may vary...More

Easy to explore either on bike or foot, Condesa offers
a great variety of activities and places to visit

restaurants vary from regional to global along its
streets, while local bars even let you craft your own
beer. The urban yet relaxing vibe let visitors cycle
or stroll on the Amsterdam Circuit.
