To be fair I would give 4.5 stars. Pro tip: you have to get at lease one Spanish menu even if you don’t speak Spanish. There are dishes on that menu that are not on the English menu! We had an excellent meal at Nicos.the...More

One of our best experiences in Mexico city. We loved the fun atmosphere that carried into the late afternoon and some of the most well executed traditional cuisine we found in Mexico City. A bit off the beaten path but worth it. Highly recommended

Always crowded, needed reservation for 5, but my table was for 4. Service took ages for drinks and appetizers. More than 25 min for main dishes. More than 15 minutes to clean up. Great food totally wasted by obnoxious attitude. Too far from city center...More

This establishment is billed by many as the best restaurant in Mexico City. Well I can’t necessarily agree with that, I do believe it’s the most hospitable. The service was exemplary, with servers bringing out samples of different moles and sauces to try. I wasn’t...More

Order the guacamole and have it with chicharrones, mind blowing. Delicious margaritas, and every plate was so good and exceptional. Great place to go with family, chat, catch up, share plates and enjoy.

Home of the Tepeneca people, Azcapotzalco has remained
faithful to its roots even as time has passed.
Beautiful details abound throughout its gardens,
houses and other historical buildings such as the Casa
de la Cultural. The works of Siqueiros, Diego Rivera
and O'Gorman are in abundance and should not be missed
while exploring the area. Walk through the streets and
have a taste of the neighborhood, which can be found

I would strongly suggest to reserve ahead. The time I had lunch there I was lucky a cancelation came up, I had to wait 30 minutes. When I left the place after my lunch, the people next to me on the waiting line were still... More
