Come here for the nice rooftop view of the Zocalo, the main square of the city.
The food is average, and they have a 10 course tasting menu for $40.
But would stick to drinks and an appetizer here while enjoying the view.

Spectacular views, exquisite dishes, top-notch service!

You can't go wrong dining at this rooftop! It's a bit expensive but the view alone makes up for that.

For dinning, I started with an agua horchata with coco and vainilla ($75MXN), it was the best horchata I've ever had! I actually had two of those. As a starter we had the panuchos de cochinita pibil. Shredded and marinated pork on a green masa tortilla garnished with pickled red onion and topped with a boiled egg. They were soo good I could've just had two more orders of that and made it my main course. But I had already ordered the Lomo de salmon en mole de tamarindo ($220). The salmon was perfectly cooked and the mole was tasty but a little spicy for me (I usually shy away from spicy food and I mistakenly thought that the tamarindo would make it mild). I still enjoyed it and finished it all. I also tried the costillar de cerdo and that dish was phenomenal ($245). Will definitely order that the next time I'm here.

A lovely restaurant on the terrace of the Zocalo Central hotel. Service is good, food excellent (great fillet and a duck mole) and portions huge. It has a great view on the cathedral and the Zocalo. I recommend wearing a good jacket as it gets chilly at night. It is pricey but worth every penny.

This rooftop terrace restaurant in the Holiday Inn Zócalo has possibly the best views in the city. The breakfast table groans under the load of the ample buffet, and there's a nice lady to prepare eggs al gusto. Hummingbirds (or possibly dragonflies) hover nearby, lending to the peaceful atmosphere. The food is average but more than compensated for by the surroundings.
