Everything they have is amazingly delicious. We spent around $55 including tip but we ordered tons of food for two. Try the quesadilla comalera as an appetizer. Hand made tortillas with delicious cheese and choice of meat.

Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro
Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings
and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico
City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio
Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas
Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to
admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit
the wide variety of markets and plazas where any

I think they perform at night, the best thing to do is to call the restaurant and ask.
Do you need a reservation for Christmas Eve?

In looking at photos and Google Street view, it looks like there is a second floor level with windows that open onto Calle de Tacuba? I am trying to find a 2nd floor bar or restaurant that provides a clear view of the Alebrijes Parade below on Oct 22nd.

Either you'll have to be very very lucky to find a table by the windows, or you'll have to handsomely, and/or very discretely, "tip" the folks at the hosting station. Good luck!
