I've been going to Franca Bistro for some time now. Whether it's a midweek drink sat outside on a Summers night, or a meal with friends the food, atmosphere and service are always great.

I went here for brunch/breakfast the other day. They have a reliable wifi connection, outlets to charge your computer (I think a few) and the wait staff was attentive (but this may have been because there was virtually no one else there). They also have...More

Located almost at the end of the fashionable Obregón strip, just off Mérida (note that on Mérida, just around the corner Franca has a small pizzería), this small bistro caught our eye with a comfortable and unpretentious vibe, a varied and reasonably priced menu, and...More

Known for its constant cultural and gastronomic
developments, Roma, is a beautiful neighborhood that
was once the place for poets such as Kerouac and
Ginsberg to call home. Galleries, museums and even
private residences are on beautiful display when
walking through Colima street to do some necessary
shopping or when going to the classic Cine Tonalá to
enjoy a delicious dinner and a great film. Top notch

Small and cozy place in the heart on Colonia Roma, the epicenter of entertainment in the city.
Mainly French food with Argentinean and Italian touches that correspond to the owner’s origins. On the menu, Nocoise salads and the chicken casserole are highlighted as the typical French dishes, but it also has a variety of delicious pizzas and grilled cuts.

Pequeño y acogedor sitio en el corazón de la colonia Roma, el epicentro del entretenimiento de nuestra ciudad.
