A very friendly atmosphere in a nostalgic scenario building. The food is very good and includes soup in any of the main dishes. You won´t regret it. A good bargain.

We had a reservation, so we did not have any problem to get our table. The atmosphere is nice, calm and quiet. The service is excellent and food delicious. I recommend Sopa de Tortilla and Arrachera. Panqué de Plátano con helado de chocolate. I had a very pleasant time there.

One of the factors that makes dining in Mexico City's Centro Histórico so special is the abundance of restaurants set in historic buildings that have been revamped for modern times. The high ceilings, interior patios, large windows, etc. make these spaces extra attractive. When good food, attentive service and affordable prices are added to the mix, it's a win/win situation.

Don Toribio is particularly interesting because in the building's ground floor patio there is a casual version that serves the Mexican specialty of 'comida corrida,' a three-course (usually) daily special meal that's tasty and well-prepared. This is a very popular spot for local business folk, tourists, passersby, etc. Food is very attractively presented and very affordable (starting at 69 pesos!).

On the third floor is the more formal version of Don Toribio. A lovely dining room with views onto two streets. Outside our window was the iconic old Supreme Court building which despite scaffolding and canvas drapery still let some of its barque decorations shine through.

Menu is traditional, Mexican domestic cuisine with emphasis on grilled items. The home-made aguas frescas are delicious and the serving portions generous.

This is a restaurant that hearkens back to a past age that's well worth a visit.
