After a long day of exploring Mexico City north of the Zocalo, I made it a point to have a relaxing dinner at Hosteria de Santo Domingo. I was not disappointed. The restaurant was busy in the early evening, but the staff seated me immediately. I enjoyed the specialty of the house: chile en nogada--a huge poblano chile pepper stuffed with dried fruit and ground meat and covered in a creamy sauce, dotted with pomegranate seeds. A few cold cervezas rounded out this outstanding dinner experience.

Beautiful, historic restaurant with a peaceful, homey atmosphere and friendly staff. The house specialty (Chile con Nogada) is a rather unusual dish, but tasty. It is a big portion, very filling and could probably feed 2 people. The Chile Relleno was not very good, however. Possibly reheated and just a lump of cheese inside and the sauce was nothing special.

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
