The service is very sufficient and the location very nice. Everything is clean. However, the food is not the main purpose one should visit the San Angel Inn. But it is alwaz a nice experience. Very busy with Families on weekend. Reservation needed.

My wife and I were in Mexico City on a combined trip: business and pleasure. We went to the San Angel area, first to browse around the shops at Bazaar Sabado, and then went for lunch at San Angel Inn. This is a dream of a restaurant where the food is outstanding, and the service really efficient and very courteous.... More

The San Angel Inn is a beautiful building in a historic area of Mexico, a magical place when in the south of Mexico. Service is good and food although not cutting edge is ok. It is one of the must visits in the city full of history and tradition.

The garden is gorgeous and has a wonderful atmosphere. It is a real treat to eat outside in such a beautiful place. Unfortunately, the food is pretty average and the wines really pitiful. Been there twice. We tried different dishes and wines: the results were unfortunately consistent. I wish they could find a cook and a sommelier having the talent... More
