    A fantastic restaurant, one of my favorites in CDMX, the tasting menu was amazing. I go everytime I am in Mexico City. Make sure to reserve/request a table next to the gorgeous view of the Zocalo!

    Carísimo en poca cantidad ! cositas pequeñas y con poco sabor! Reservé con antelación pidiendo vistas y me sentaron atrás. Servicio muy tardado desde para hacernos entrar y no había fila. Pedimos unas copas de vino y nunca llegaron. Vayan por algo de tomar tómense fotos y luego vayan por tacos al pastor de al lado que ahí dos tacos de pastor cuestan como 250 pesos WTF ! jaja

    La mejor cena de cumpleaños digna de unas vacaciones. Excelente servicio, deliciosa comida y una atención inmejorable, soy celíaca y me cuidaron en todo momento para que no hubiera contaminación en mi comida además de modificar un postre para mí. Sin duda regresaremos. Gracias

    Sólo recomendaría que en su terraza pusieran algo para no dejar que el sol pegue de manera directa, porque cuando hay sol fuerte es mejor estar algo protegido para disfrutar al cien de la comida y la vista de tan excelente lugar. Gracias por sus atenciones fue extraordinario.

    El objetivo de la vista al balcón no fue la mejor ya que no estaba en línea directa el mesero fue un poco descortés al no explicar a detalle los platillos de su carta el demás personal amables y muy serviciales

    Part of me wanted to leave a 1 star review for my awful experience. But left an average review for things I didn't try but for service I left a 1 star review. I booked this reservation a long time ago with the intention of it being my first day In mexico city and my birthday celebration. I showed up on time for my reservation and was told to wait which is fine but what bothered me was sitting in the table without anyone offering us a menu or drink while we waited. It was about 25 minutes of waiting and still no one came over and I decided to leave. Staff seemed like whatever about the situation which for me it was upsetting knowing I booked up a while ago and wanted to celebrate. Eventually after I was waiting for elevator someone came over to apologize and offer me to come next day. At that point we did not want to eat dinner there. Hopefully no one else has this issue but for this reason it's getting this review.

    El sitio es hermoso, la ubicación con la terraza vista al zócalo le suma, la propuesta de alimentos también me parece buena. El servicio, siempre le ha dolido. Mucho tiempo para tomar orden de bebidas, mucho esperar para tomar orden de alimentos y tienes que ir con mente tolerante para tú ser quien busque al mesero para ser atendido.

    Nos gustó mucho. Fuimos por la vista del Zócalo y la oportunidad de ver el show del Zócalo desde arriba. Nos quedamos sorprendidos con la presentación y el sabor de la comida. Es gourmet. Definitivamente, vamos a regresar pronto.

    Todo muy rico, pero además de la calidad de los alimentos y bebidas, uno va por la vista privilegiada del centro pero las plantas que tienen en el balcón están muy altas y realmente se interponen para tomar una excelente foto, por ejemplo.

    The moment you enter the elevator to go up to the restaurant you know you're in for a treat. The glass kitchen lets you preview the feast that you are about to enjoy, the decor is very cozy but once you reach the terrace and get a glimpse of the historic zocalo you inmediatly get transported. All dishes are carefully constructed to showcase the best of Mexico's ingredients and service is impecable, plan a good 2 to 3 hours to really enjoy the full experience

    Bonito lugar, comida en porciones bastante razonables y no exageradas, excelente vista, el servicio podría ser más atento, pero es bueno. Recomiendo que también incluyan otros servicios, solicité flores y sólo hasta estar en el lugar me notificaron que no lo manejaban, pero en términos generales es un buen lugar. Gracias!!
