We went to La Docena our first night in Mexico City. Despite not having a reservation we were seated immediately upon arrival. The restaurant was lively but not too loud and service was good. I highly recommend starting with some oysters and getting several dishes...More

This place is a bit overrated. Food is good, but it’s too overcrowded, tables are too close, drinks are not strong, and price point doesn’t make since for México. This is literally around the corner from our apartment but we walk past it and keep...More

Good dinner. I liked the Ceviche and the 3 leches dessert. The food was a mixture between spanish and other cultures dishes. The restaurant was full and everybody seems to enjoy dinning.

This place is fantastic. It's busy, and the food is incredibly tasty. Service was fast, super friendly and attentive. Most staff understood English, which helped us. Just the presentation of the dishes alone, real authentic look, which matched the taste.

Our hotel recommended La Docena and we loved it! It’s a loud, fun seafood spot with a lot of locals. They have a oyster bar that sits out on the sidewalk where a lot of people sit with their dogs, which I love!! This is...More

Known for its constant cultural and gastronomic
developments, Roma, is a beautiful neighborhood that
was once the place for poets such as Kerouac and
Ginsberg to call home. Galleries, museums and even
private residences are on beautiful display when
walking through Colima street to do some necessary
shopping or when going to the classic Cine Tonalá to
enjoy a delicious dinner and a great film. Top notch
