We went for breakfast and it was PACKED. we waited close to an hour for a table but it was worth the wait! The food is amazing and the service incredible. The prices are not bad at all. We paid $65 for 6 of us. Highly recommended.

If you want to eat here at a main eating time, absolutely reserve - the place is huge,but because the food is so good, it seems to be always packed. Absolutely try the hot chocolate (even if you are a coffee drinker) and the orden de nata (a creamy cream cheese served with bread). Great Mexican food.

One of my favorite restaurants in the historic part of the city. Went for lunch. Didn’t make a reservation, there was a 40 minute wait. We walked around and came back in time to be seated. Excellent waitstaff. Delicious breads. Again had my favorite dish which is a goat cooked with spices in paper.
Highly recommend. Do make reservations.

Great food and the best of old fashioned Mexican hospitality - just wish they opened earlier or we’d have gone every day!
