I have eaten here several times and the food has always been good and the prices are reasonable. The staff is very friendly and they usually have someone there that speaks English. Next time I am in Mexico City I will visit this restaurant again.

Enjoyed lunch/dinner at Potzollcalli my last day in CDMX. Was surprised by the huge drink and food order as well. Prices are at par with other area restaurants. Will totally visit again.
