I think you should try this restaurant always. The arquitecture, the Old style Mexican haciendas. The músic, the service. But also the food. Its just fantastic to have the experience and more after walking around San Angel.

When you go to Mexico City this is a "must" restaurant to visit. This restaurant is in an old and beautiful Hacienda with a great indoor "patio". The food is excellent and the service it´s awesome like in almost all the restaurants in the city. You have to make a reservation with time because it´s usually very crowded. I recommend... More

This is a gorgeous place. Feels good to visit. The service is old style with waiters that know their stuff. Food is excellent. We all asked for classics of Mexican cuisine and where happy with everything. Take a whole afternoon to this. Don't come if you are in a hurry. Important: I thought for many years that this was an...

There are actually two restaurants in the San Angel Inn -- a restaurante gastronomico and a regular restaurant. Make sure you choose the one you're interested in. The former is small and very formal (and of course more expensive). The other is more typical of an upscale restaurant. We made a reservation at the first but asked to change to... More

We are a three generation family who were visiting Mexico City for 5 days over the holidays. San Angel Inn was highly recommended as a "must", so we did. Our first impression was very positive. The staff were efficient, pleasant and professional. The dining room is spacious and formal and the table beautifully set. We opted not to have a... More

Don't even bother. Food is awful AWFUL AWFUL. Shockingly bad in a city with such amazing food. Waste of a gorgeous location. 1.) Ordered tortilla soup and a garden salad. Salad = good. Tortilla soup = canned. 2.) Ordered swordfish. I was embarrassed for them. Denny's does a better job at plating. They actually served the swordfish with A BAKED... More

Neighbourhood Profile
San Angel
San Ángel is known for its artistic vibe and elegant details displayed throughout its streets, antique residences and haciendas where famous actors like Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent families used to live and that have now been turned into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An array of cultural and artistic activities are organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays when the San Jacinto Plaza and surroundings really shine as artists gather to exhibit a variety of arts and crafts, from paintings to clothing.
