This is a restaurant of great tradition in Mexico City. The food is very good, the services very attentive and the place very nice. It really reminds you of typical restaurant in Spain. I highly recommend the place for lunch or dinner whenever visiting downtown.

Food was not that great for the price. Server kept up selling so we ended up spending a lot more than food was worth. Worst part was when we were done and it was raining real hard. We asked if they'd call a taxi and...More
