  • Very nice building outside and inside. Apparently as well very popular. We have been served in the big hall with mirrors. The food was average and the service was not stylish like the house itself...  more »
  • Neat to see but I wouldn’t go out of my way to go there. It is across from the Latin American tower so was easy to view....I far preferred the sculpture gardens at the base of the tower.  more »

  • This is a beautiful historical building. It is definitely something to see if you'd like to see a genuine piece of Mexico. It has both a store and a restaurant. The store has books and traditional candy. The restaurant has beautiful high ceilings and the architectural will take you back in time.
  • Had to go inside just to see it. Considered to be an old place from old times that kept its style with no change or additions. Long wait if interested and crowded too. A gift shop and a chocolate display at the entrance worth a try. Next time I will eat there.
