Traditional Mexican restaurant, with traditional menu and decoration. We got there early, around 13:30 and were promptly attended. But the food was ok, well done but nothing surprising. Salad was very basic (lettuce, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots) and it looked like was in the refrigerator from the last day. Gigante shrimps (as offered in the menu) was regular size and nothing was special about them. The green fish soup was good, well done. But the overall experience was unimpressive and didn't compensate for the price charged.

I guess that this is one of the very best restaurants in Mexico City with the best quality in service and food. It has been in business for more than 80 years, which proves the quality of the place. Fresh seafood and varied menu with an acceptable wine list. You must reach at 1 pm at the latest to ensure immediate seating; otherwise, you can wait for almost an hour before you get your table. This place is one of the most traditional restaurants in the city. Worldwide top quality! Make sure you get a table at Planta Baja (Street Level)!

This place is really good, the seafood is fresh and the ambiance is relaxed.
It has been there for years and will stay for many more.

Went for the seafood and were not impressed. The roe was overcooked and the mussels were too salty. The fish soup was ok. Should have realized it was not excellent when we opened the door and saw very few clients! The service was excellent and we wondered how they could pay the wages as there were more staff than clients.

The place opened in 1936 and perhaps the renovation and decoration budget get expended on that date... the place offers delicious dishes, a reason to be always crowded. If you are in downtown and look a place to eat, this is a good option.
