We were quite lucky to get a table without booking, they opened a new terrace and we had to wait just 10 min without having an booking. Some 10 min walk from the Cathedral square, historical district. Valet parking. Good service. Artisanal beer, margaritas were...great. We loved everything we ordered. Some pics attached. Recommended!More

Would never recomend this restaurant to anyome. The client service is awfull and they are not following pandemic guidelines. They choose whom to sell licor and whom to deny it. A lot of discrimination going on here against US citizens.

We stopped there for breakfast, rather late (10:00 AM), and the waiters were having breakfast! We were not welcome to the place, even though we were standing at the reception podium. The Maître finally approached us, and started ranting about the restaurant not being part...of the hotel housed in the same building; unrequested information! Besides, the place is rather dark and not enticing. Maybe for a romantic dinner...More

The place is beautiful and have a really nice ambiance. It was my first time in this spot. It was busy Sunday lunch we arrive around 4:30 pm the hostess said till 6:00 pm will be availability and we decided to wait but we wait...only 30 min. The experience started very good with the COVID-19 standards. But with the time our server got lost we had to called the manager to get a bottle elf wine and for the bill, tho hostess for tissues and limes even for replacement of cutlery. We ordered sopa de tortilla very nice presentation and taste and caldo ranchero was soooo disgusting, flavorless and kind of cold. One thing it got me very disappointed was the Chiles en hogada taste very very good but are overrated. The online menu doesn’t has price for them. But honestly $430.00 mexican pesos for this main course it’s insane Chile’s are no that big and doesn’t come with pomegranate and nogada. I think with COVID-19 some places are taking advantage of prices with some dishes and drinks for the value which is a shame. It’s a good place good food but I hate when industry want to over charge for no reason things. I work in this industry being restaurnat manager in a prestigious restaurnat in DOHA QATAR, I really know how to do this and honestly those things reject your market.More

As it was already later in the evening, the effect of walking into the courtyard is quite stunning. The lights in the trees really adds an ethereal quality. We didn't have a reservation, but we were seated promptly. The food was solid, but upon comparison...to other places we ate in CDMX, I can say it was a little pricey (but still more affordable than what I'm used to!) My partner is a fluent Spanish speaker, so that might be a reason we didn't experience the rude service that other folks mention. I'd like to think my friends and I are generally amenable though. They have a great Mezcal selection, so it's a good place to get a taste for what you like. There was also a fortune teller who was walking by the tables - for a modest fee (I forget, but just a few coins), his bird would select a fortune for you. The whole things was just so charming. I'm glad it was my first meal in CDMX!More

The food and location is excellent. However, the demeanor of the waiters totally negates what should be a lovely dining experience. We went twice, and both times were met with rudeness. I’ll just note a few issues. We noticed all of the other tables were...receiving with explanation a small welcome appetizer. We were not offered that either visit. When I asked our server, he said that it was a salad on the menu (not true). I asked if there was a children’s menu. Both nights I was simply told no. On the second visit, I asked if he had recommendations for a child or if there were any small portion options. If the restaurant didn’t permit children, I was unaware and unadvised upon arrival. We had three servers standing behind our table most of our visit. I can’t say they were doing much more than ignoring our table. The second night, I did complain to El Capitan when after dinner we weren’t even offered dessert, we were just ignored. He did to improve our experience with dessert. However, I still would not recommend visiting. All guests should be treated with respect, we definitely were not on either visit. Go to El Balcón De Zocalo instead.More

Title says it all: very small portions, expensive for US standards, food was cold, didn’t have pulque flavor we wanted. Other Issue was we had about five different servers and they weren’t particularly friendly - felt like we were bothering them. Pro: indoor trees were...pretty.More

Eating in an outdoor courtyard with tea-light decorated trees was a joy, especially for those of us whose winters do not allow this in March! There were many authentic Mexican dishes. We started with a shared plate of guacamole with tortillas followed by empeñadas and...mole. Their 300 ML local wines were not extortionate (300 pesos) but good.More

If kids are unusually well behaved after 8pmand are patient- perhaps. But this is not an ideal setting as the meal is not rushed or designed for kids under 10. Besides, it is a rather quiet place for an outdoor location
