We loved this place. An amazing spot in the centre of Mexico city where most places are touristy. This is not. The courtyard is wonderful. The service very good, fast and friendly.
The Owner/chef was delightful. We went there a few times as the breakfast and lunch were really good value and delicious. The chef offered us a desert just so we could try it and always came to the table to ask if we enjoyed our food. On the last day we went for breakfast and when we came to pay, we found out that our bank notes were fake! the owner wanted to offer us our breakfast but we insisted on paying by card. Can not recommend this place more highly.

We came at around 2pm on a Saturday and it was almost empty. Very surprised considering how busy the streets were. Good choice of main courses with soup or salad included.
My Spanish is very bad but the waiter was extremely understanding and helpful.
We had two mains with soup and two alcoholic drinks each and the bill came to about 400MXD.
Would definitely recommend.

Thank Ld G

We wanted to like it because atomosphere is very nice and classy but I think it's touristy and overated a little bit. I had a most expensive item on menu and fish dish was not that great. Actually I was so disappointed. My husband had combo meal and nothing really special about it. Their bread was so dry too. I say awesome atomosphere and great service but if you are used to eating mexican food their food is nothing special.
