In what seems like a cathedral, with iconic architecture and stained glass windows, this restaurant creates an authentic Spanish atmosphere, with its design and dress. The food was an interesting twist of Spanish and Mexican, but more leaning towards Spanish. But the taste was world-class

Perhaps my expectations were too high, I had heard great things about the place, specially their suckling pig and the medieval nights but everything was frankly disappointing. Let's start with the show, it was entertaining but not authentic medieval although the crowd doesn't seem to...More

Roast garlic bread is very savvy, a nice treat after a long day walk at the Sol and Lunar pyramid. The cold soup is very fresh, fresh and tasty squid and rice with black ink sauce, highly recommended. Finally, the juicy roasted pigging, the pig...More

A very old restaurant near downtown, cooking lechon Candido Style, with the complete cutting with a plate show. Regardless of the theatrics, it is an outstanding dish, worth the traffic and trouble of going to DF Downtown. They also have some festivals that bring rare...More

This beautiful park was once the playground for the
wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now
the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for

bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander
around admiring the charming gardens and the
sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may
