This restaurant is not just an iconic historic beautiful place, it also has an outstanding service and amazing food. We were there for lunch with our two kids and enjoyed it completely. We were craving mexican food and this place surpassed our expectations. The house tortilla soup and the The Chicken Breast with Mole was amazing! Can't wait to go... More

Stunning old building, eat in the courtyard unless its too hot. The staff are plentiful, well trained and great at their jobs. The menu is solidly regional but with some sophisticated twists. Spend a weekend afternoon watching the elite of Mexico City come for a late lunch. Food great, setting great, service great - well worth a visit, but do... More

This has to be one of the prettiest spots in Mexico City. The restaurant surrounds a lush courtyard filled with plants and flowers. It's very popular so reservations are a must. Servers were so nice and attentive! The Aztec soup is a must as is the mole. Great spot for a nice leisurely lunch.

We had originally planned on visiting another well-known hacienda but had two other locals tell us to visit the San Angel Inn instead. We had an amazing experience... our waiters treated us exceptionally well... children were treated with respect and our meal was very nice. Thanksgiving at the San Angel!? Afterwards, we sat outside in the splendid courtyard and enjoyed... More

This is one of the most beautiful places in Mexico City. The gardens, the architecture, the luxurious feel, could all make it ideal. But then there is the food--a 1950s menu with a 1950s approach to cooking. Service--well it started out fine, but then it seemed impossible to get more water, the dessert menu, and the check.

We sat in the courtyard next to the fountain on a cloudy day....the vegetation and flowers all around us were incredible, great landscaping! The service, the food, the wine amd the Ile Flotant for dessert were, as usual cooked to perfection. I had a breast in their home made mole sauce, firger licking good. My friend had the arrachera and... More

The restaurant has great service and above average food. The most attractive quality of this place is the beauty of the building and gardens. Great place to end the day after shopping in the near by town plaza and market.
