Was recommended this restaurant by several local people, decided it was time for a good meal in great location. Was not disappointed, the soup was great and the beef and mole sauce was fantastic. Great place.

The food was very good, specially the cochinita pibil. However as a pricy restaurant the portions were quite small for their price. The service was not the best, the location is very good - close to subways stations, mains touristic sights in the center, but it is inside of a commercial centre. Take care the restaurant can be quite full.

This restaurant is located in the courtyard of the refurbished Hotel Downtown. The ambience is romantic, upscale, and charming. The courtyard is flunked by two stories of small artisanal boutiques with high quality merchandise. I didn't think the service befitted the upscale cafe and the charming environment. I felt rushed. The food was also very mediocre. I ordered the "queen... More

We had a delightful dinner however do not be late for your reservation. We were due to traffic & had to wait 30 minutes even though we were only 12 minutes late for our reservation. It was worth it however as everything we ordered was very good.

This is a good option if you are looking for Mexican traditional food, particularly for breakfast. The place itself is a lovely setting but quite cold, it probably would be better to visit in summer or spring. Service is nice, although gets slower by the time the restaurant gets full.

The restaurant is situated in a covered courtyard of the Hotel Downtown, It is very romantic specially at night with 1000 lanterns. Homemade tortillas are filled with exotic ingredients, all served by friendly waiters and paired with wonderful Margaritas. You need a reservation or you can visit the boutiques around while you wait for a table. A very special place.... More

The restaurant is located in a very nice yard of an old building which helps creating an excellent atmosphere. They offer a large variety of Mexican food, including many types of Mole, which I never knew about. We tried two of them and both were excellent. Service was good, but somewhat slow.

Fun place for lunch - lovely setting and great food. Also conveniently located in the middle of great, fun shopping. Good food - amazing tortillas and have the tortilla soup just to receive it in the Katrina bowl. Also had a pitcher of sangria that was refreshing and colorful. We loved the whole thing.
