Authentic Mexican food from Mexico City- not your typical tacos - you can find here "different" plates with "special crickets" lol did not tried anything exotic - upscale and safe..

Do you know those places where you can easily see yourself with your family having a nice dinner? That is Cien Anos. The waiters were so friendly and careful with the service, making sure I was enjoying the meal. My main course was 'Filete res Chatuco', and it was absolutely gorgeous! A delicious soup as a starter, and I left... More

I had the "Filete Maximiliano" and I must say it was the best steak I've ever had! It was placed on top of a grilled "chile poblano" with a red chile sauce that was to die for. Absolutely delicious!

They serve outstanding local wines from Guadalupe Valley. The waiter prepared flan tableside which was excellent. The air conditioning in the front room near the open door was not too good.

I had a great dinner tonight with Jose, the founder/owner/chef of Cien Anos, since the last time visiting the restaurant with my lab group in 2002-2003. It moved next door into larger accommodations and lost its parking lot. The air conditioned restaurant area is very pleasant, but not quite as elegant as before. However, the service was superb with sauce-making... More

At one time the best in town both food wise and ambiance. Now is a shell of itself in all categories including service and actual food. Much better choices in town for what they call 'Alta cocina Mexicana; Probably deserves 2 out of 5 but will provide benefit of the doubt and sit at average due to its glorious history.

This place is very poor. I chose it to celebrate our wedding and that was a disaster. They did not set the tables the way I asked them. The food was different from the testing menu. I had to pay for "special lighting-decoration", but that did not work, the place was dark. The floor dancing is very old, the pieces... More

You were very pleased the day of your wedding , your wife made us change the table settings 3 times because you didnt have a wedding coordinator we had to move the tables again 1 hour before the event because she couldn't make up her mind.Before the event started you said everything was fine. Only half of the people you... More
