Came here based on the recommendation of a friend and had a delicious lunch! The chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese and covered in mole was amazing- the best mole I had the entire week! Would definitely recommend. Reservations are suggested.

Enchiladas michoacanas were delicious. We had a long wait on Good Friday, but it was worth it. Excellent service

Hands down, my favorite place to eat in all Mexico City. Breakfast or lunch will not disappoint. Freshly bake bread, fresh fruit drinks, home made tortillas... awww just everything. I been coming for years now and every time I come I keep falling in love.

I have been to this restaurant for breakfast many times but never for lunch. Lunch here is as delicious as breakfast. Most definitely one of our favorite places to eat while in Mexico City.

The restaurant is inside the Hilton across from the Alameda. The service was excellent, as were the pastries and tableside hot chocolate service. There were four of us, and we ordered four different entries, all of which were delicious. Highly recommend!

the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend

around admiring the charming gardens and the
sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may
