The waiter upsold us, the food was cold (yet also came out suspiciously quickly), and was nothing to write home about. There were more tourists than locals. Just not a good place.

La hosteria is a great option to eat traditional mexican food! Is nearby the main square and has an old fashioned environment. I went there to try the chile de nogada, which is a traditional dish served between august and october -ish. They have live music at 3 pm (on Sundays at least) and the experience is pretty unique and traditional. A one-time place.

Chiles en nogada is an emblematic dish of Mexican food that is normally found in restaurants from August to December because of the difficulty to find all the ingredients necesary to make this very complicated recipe.
This restaurant has them all year.
For those that enjoy this famous dish, this restaurant is a must.
Menu is quite extensive and includes many other alternatives.
Not cheap but fairly priced

This fine old place has been here forever. I try to stop in every time I am in Mexico City. It is one of the few places where you can get the fiesta dish Chiles en Nogada any day of the year so that is always what I get. This time I had to wait for a table and the food was served too quickly and not at a hot enough temperature - a little disappointing. But my waiter was very pleasant and they now have a nice selection of Mexican craft beers (albeit at premium prices, but interesting to try). Still a worthwhile experience. Old school, Mexico City atmosphere.

Be warned the restaurant is on the cusp of a sketchy area even while not far away from Zocalo.
The food seems decent, but what is less than impressive is the indifferent, careless, slowwwww service that one gets. It gets to the point it feels ofensive.
If you are willing to put up with this while consuming slightly above average tasting traditional Mexican food, this is your place.
