Mexican food in the USA comes in many regional varieties, each a different experience. Maria Felix offered food prepared in ways I'd not yet experienced. We were attending a conference at the Polo Científico Tecnologico across the street (and our hotel was a few blocks away). We ate here twice, once inside with a large group and also on the roof patio with a smaller group.

If your'e expecting food similar to Mexican restaurants in the USA, you'll likely be disappointed. We enjoyed the variety of food experience and the different ways that Maria Felix prepared familiar dishes.

Ring the bell for entry, and be prepared to climb stairs to the dining area and roof top patio.

We liked the quirky atmosphere, food and drinks here, although we had to wait a while for a table, and once we got one, service was slow. One of us had a delicious fish dish and the rest were vegetarians so had to be a little creative. We managed to get a large side dish of black beans and a large side dish of rice to go along with what they considered "vegetarian" on the menu (items with vegetables but no protein). This DIY a la carte vegetarian option was not cheap but with the different sauces and soft tortillas, it was filling, satisfying and not horribly greasy (as was our experience at another Mexican place in BA).

This place was recommended to me by a Buenos Aires foodie as a great Mexican restaurant. Not sure what it was but I was not so impressed with it. The food was not bad but it just lacked that home feeling I like when eating out (being comfy as if you had stayed home). The service was nice and attentive.

We often use Tripadvisor to check on restaurants.. this restaurant had mixed reviews and having been there, I full agree. Strange interior decoration, run down place, the food was maximum mediocre - only the staff was friendly.
