    Go for lunch and get the mole negro—chicken leg topped with a rich, thick dark mole sauce that's smokey, sweet, and slightly spicy. Make tacos out of it with the accompanying tortillas.

    Best Mexican food you can pay. Excellent service. Crowds on weekends. Reserve or send one of the party to Cue. Fish&cactus soup. Escamoles & breakfast NATA y concha.

    Recommend: escamoles(must), shrimp tacos, and chicken thigh with mole(although personally I think they put too much sauce on top)

    Extremely disappointed... Maybe I had high expectations but seriously... there's sooo many better options for breakfast in this city. Go to El Mayor instead if you want to stay in Centro histórico

    They have the best appetizer ever, but in general their problem is that they are too popular. Chicken breast in mole was old, I mean mole is a great thing if you want to hide chicken's imperfections..

    Traditional building, well trained staff and the 3 starters we shared between the 2 of us for lunch were perfection. Traditional food, very well prepared and seasoned to taste the fresh products

    Spicy salsa! Since you arrive you are greeted with a hot cup of cocoa and sweet bread. We ordered "gorditas" "huevos ahogados" and "huevo con cecina".

    If you go to one place in Mexico City, it should be El Cardenal. The breakfasts are legendary, especially the the hot chocolate and the"panes dulces" that put every other Mexican sweet bread to shame.

    Something different? Try "escamoles" a delicious typical dish. With Tortilla and green salsa.

    Pastry in the beginning was very nice. Chocolate drink a little to watery for my liking. Great service.

    Consistently the Mexican restaurant in DF. You will find every great Mexican dish for breakfast or lunch. This is also a safe place to indulge in Mexican insect specialties. –Adam Calderon

    El agua de mamey y el filete de res a la mantequilla son una buena opción.

    El pecho de cordero trae mucha grasa así que mejor pidan "pecho de cordero al pastor"
  • Guillermo Alonso M.
    Simplemente el mejor lugar para desayunar en el DF muy rica comida pan y chocolate
  • Julio D.
    Pecho de cordero, TERRIBLE. Grasoso, baboso y crudo. Lástima porque no es un mal restaurante

    El valet parking se tardó más de una hora en traer el auto (67 minutos) es una infamia tener que esperar tanto, la comida exquisita y lo demás bien.
  • Maria F.
    El mejor servicio de todos los restaurantes... La comida Deli... Lo amo!

    La ternera es deliciosa y no se puede dejar pasar un postre con un #delicioso chocolate

    Delicioso!

    Excelente lugar para comer en el Centro Histórico, con variedad de platillos mexicanos y buen servicio. Prueben el estofado de cordero!
  • Mario O.
    Chocolate con pan dulce, para chopear, seguido de orden de nata, chilaquiles rojos con jugo de naranja, el lugar, la atención, todo perfecto, hace honor a los comentarios, auténtica comida mexicana.
