Wine, bottled water, 4 appetizers, 4 entrees, 2 desserts and a coffee. $112USD after tip!! So reasonable! All the apps were delicious! Try the cochinita. Everything was perfect. Can't wait to return!

We loved our lunch and our experience at La Capital. We couldn't wait to go back and we were only in Mexico City for 5 days!

We had a wonderful 2 1/2 hour lunch. Service was wonderful. We weren't rushed. The wait staff offered wonderful suggestions on wine, food, and drinks. There the Mexican wine. The food was awesome. There's a lot of seafood on the menu. All way beyond my expectations. Also this restaurant is located in a cool neighborhood worth exploring near a beautiful... More

My son and I came here for dinner on my birthday and we had a great time. We started with an appetizer of varied tuber chips with guacamole, and the lime soup. The lime soup was delicious! Dinner included octopus and an unusual meat/cheese/vegetable/fruit poblano with a cream sauce. Both were great. Presentation was key to this, all dishes were... More

We had an exceptional meal this evening at La Capital. We went on a friend's recommendation. The drinks and food were terrific - especially the tuna. The service was excellent. Two drinks, 4 rounds of appetizers, a shared entree and dessert were less than $50 (US).

La Capital has good food at a good price. The food is upscale, cantina-style cuisine. The service is efficient. These are the pluses. The negatives are that it is large and impersonal, or at least that was the experience that my friends and I had. Reading other reviews, I am guessing that how friendly the service is depends on the... More

The food was beautiful and very tasty! The restaurant was packed when we were there but the waiter wasn't stressed at all - just extremely professional, friendly and personal! Great restaurant!

This restaurant was recommended by our airbnb host and it was so good that we went twice during our 10 day stay - the only restaurant where we did that. We enjoyed the shrimp tacos as a starter to share, and catch of the day for a main.
