This is a place that everybody in Mexico City needs to visit at least once... traditional yet unassuming seafood, located close to important landmarks downtown... has been there for ages, and many famous people and politicians can be seen there during the week... food is mostly ok, but you are visiting an historic landmark, that alone is worth the trip

Good and interesting to go there. Very Good fish and seafood in a place where the famous go. They have all the walls full of dedications. It is not far from the Zócalo. Nice service. Très intéressant de passé par cette restaurant. Les murs sont couverts par Dédicaces. Pas très loin du Zócalo. Très bien pour manger poisson et fruits... More

Traditional Mexican restaurant, with traditional menu and decoration. We got there early, around 13:30 and were promptly attended. But the food was ok, well done but nothing surprising. Salad was very basic (lettuce, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots) and it looked like was in the refrigerator from the last day. Gigante shrimps (as offered in the menu) was regular size and nothing...

I guess that this is one of the very best restaurants in Mexico City with the best quality in service and food. It has been in business for more than 80 years, which proves the quality of the place. Fresh seafood and varied menu with an acceptable wine list. You must reach at 1 pm at the latest to ensure... More

Went for the seafood and were not impressed. The roe was overcooked and the mussels were too salty. The fish soup was ok. Should have realized it was not excellent when we opened the door and saw very few clients! The service was excellent and we wondered how they could pay the wages as there were more staff than clients.

The place opened in 1936 and perhaps the renovation and decoration budget get expended on that date... the place offers delicious dishes, a reason to be always crowded. If you are in downtown and look a place to eat, this is a good option.

Quite clearly this used to be a very popular restaurant, at least that is what the signed handkerchiefs on the walls suggest, but those days are gone. Now a plentiful staff overlooks a small amount of dinner guests and keeps up appearances. Taken from the state of the kitchen this restaurant deserves a good makeover by chef Ramsey if you... More

Established old school fish restaurant that offers great food and wine,and staff that take great pride in their work.It closes 20-21 hrs,so mainly a lunch spot.It is a busy room,but a haven compared to the bustling street on which it sits.Well worth seeking out.

This place is a "must" if you go downtown and you want to eat a delicious plate of langostino´s, chocolata clams and big shrimps (seafood in general)!! We arrived and we had to wait for 40 minutes, but the waiting was worth it, the clams were gone when we had the table but the langostinos were awesome! My husband ate... More
