You can't beat the view, the upscale vibes, and the quality food! I went on a romantic dinner and tried the "Menu Degustación" and it was a tour around Mexico within the season (spring). The spring menu had a lot of different cuisines and the desserts were definitely my favorite part and I don't even have a sweet tooth. We had a great experience seeing how our desserts were made in the kitchen and meeting the chef. We took some photos and continued our dessert portion in the kitchen and helped make it as well. Overall a great experience and suitable for any occasion.
Beautiful place to come for breakfast. Everything was delicious the service was great. Our waiter offered to take pictures of us with the views from the restaurant. Highly recommend anyone coming here you won't be disappointed!
Lovely, very upscale place right on the Zocalo; we stopped in for a late bite. My specialty cocktail was divine and my husband's G&T suited him fine. My cochinita wontons were also excellent, but totally eclipsed by my husband's grilled pulpo, which was hands down the tenderest and tastiest I've ever eaten. Only four stars for the small portions at high prices (even for Centro CM  upscale tourist meccas) and the somewhat perfunctory service.
