A truly wonderful experience with the Tasting Menu(which changes seasonally) and Pairings. From it's 6th floor position overlooking the Cathedral and Plaza de la Constitucion, it's worth coming here early to enjoy it before, during, and after sunset.

Fui con mi esposa por nuestro aniversario, pedimos el menú de degustación de temporada y todo estuvo delicioso y no explicaron como comer alguno de los platillos que nos llevaban; si mejoraría algo sería una mayor cantidad de bebidas sin alcohol pues mi esposa no podía beber.

Fuera de ahí todo muy bien en cuestión de alimentos, servicio y el ambiente del lugar,

We had an early dinner on the rooftop and it was one of the most memorable. First, our waiters were great. The staff was helpful and friendly. Second, the food and drinks were very good and reasonably priced . The cheese board had 4 excellent options and we had octopus as well as the goyza. Loved our meal here

We spend our last evening in Mexico City at El Balcon enjoying the fabulous view and wonderful ambiance. The wine list is excellent and I had a mezcal cocktail that was over the top good. The food was very good but not excellent. My croquettes could have used a little salt and seasoning and the duck salad was a bit disappointing as the duck skin was not crispy and the 3 small slices were paper thin. The staff is incredible. I had eaten one of my croquettes when I noticed a long hair in the sauce. I showed it to the waitress and she was mortified and quickly took it back to the kitchen. She apologized and put in a replacement order.

El Balcon del Zocalo is a beautifully situated restaurant overlooking the famous Mexico City square and the Cathedral. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the vibe feels great... until you sit down. We made a reservation over 6 weeks ago asking for a seat by the open air, we sat 3 tables back.

The front desk seemed overwhelmed when we arrived, and the person we met started folding napkins and then made a "Home Alone" face, as if she were overwhelmed. The staff also seemed too busy and overwhelmed. We had no silverware or napkins, in fact I had to take napkins from the next table for us.

The food is good to very good, but was delivered to a holding table and it sat there for at least 5 minutes before it was delivered to us. The staff had difficulty figuring out who had what (only 2 of us at the table). After a cocktail was complete, it wasn't removed. After an appetizer was completed it wasn't removed. We needed to ask them for wine and bottled water. Some of the dishes were removed after we asked them to remove them (before the main course came). Unfortunately, the service is not where it needs to be for the prices they charge.

El lugar es muy agradable, es bonito y el servicio fue excelente en todo momento. El menú es pequeño, de poca variedad. La comida tiene buen sabor, aunque no es nada fuera de lo común. Solamente el postre fue increíble (cremoso de mandarina), en verdad me encantó. La relación calidad-precio no es del todo adecuada a mí parecer, la experiencia estuvo debajo de nuestras expectativas.

El lugar es muy bonito, en especial porque la mesa que nos reservaron tenía una muy buena vista. En cuanto a la comida, existe una gran variedad de alimentos.
Los meseros se interesan por conocer si tienes alguna alergia para orientarte sobre lo que no podrías comer. Están siempre al pendiente de lo que necesites y no tardaron mucho en servir la comida.
En cuanto a los precios, considero que son un poco elevados, especialmente las bebidas, pero el sabor de la comida compensa el precio.
Es un muy lugar para tener reuniones o para una cita.
