One of Mexico City’s best kept secrets. Out of the mainstream areas, this place has kept its essence and quality. Beautiful venue, remarkable service and excellent food. The menu is well above many other trading comparables. Hope they keep aware of their strengths and evolving.More

Description
Faithful to the 19th century Antiguo Meson Mejicano (Old Mexican Inn) in all its unspoiled glory, we offer you the chance to partake, in a stately old-world manse, of the most delectable dished from the country's various regions and culinary institutions, from the fonda, cantina, and plaza stand to the most elaborate convent cuisine. All, served with different atmospheres as backdrops, from the coolness of the hidden courtyard, to the airy spaces of the Mexican hacienda. Welcome to the days of yore!
