To be fair, the food was good for the price and the service was adequate given the amount of staff and location but the meal was completely ruined by the waiter deciding to embarrass us by refusing the bill payment as he felt there want enough tip even though he had only been at our table a couple of times....

We had been to Las Girasoles several times in the past and were always delighted with the food. Our recent visit with a large family group was not a disaster, but close. We had made a reservation for eight people, but it turned out not to be busy. So far so good. They brought us menus in English, assuming we... More

I've been to Los Girasoles after a day out for sightseeing (good location) ! The restaurant has a great atmosphere, amazing food, good options of wine and the staff was just perfect! Truly recommend! The fund part is that 007 - Spectre James Bond were shoot in this restaurant in 2015.

Interesting menu. Well cooked food. Good range of Mexican and other wines. Surprisingly wide range of spirits. Excellent service. Reasonable prices. Of course, we had no hesitation in returning a few nights later. It’s easily found, at the back of the Palacio de Bellas Artes and next to the National Art Museum (Munal).

We dined here while touring Mexico in a group of 20 and had a very pleasant meal. A lot of the menu was a bit too weird for our tastes (grasshoppers etc), but the slow cooked pork Pibil in a banana leaf had lovely flavours, so much so I'm making it now we are back home!

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B but we were very disappointed. We ordered a Mexican specialty of fried mini crickets which came as a big pile with tacos and avocado. They were so salty we could not eat them. We complained to two waiters and showed them translation on our iPhone but they merely agreed they were salty and... More

Me and my girlfriend we're excited to try this restaurant out. We had read some great reviews and love good classic mexican dishes. Being in the historical district there was a lot of people out and about so we didn't worry that it was past 8pm and their hours say open until 9pm. I have worked many years in the... More
