  • We had to see how treated a young couple just because the guy had long hair. Poor treatment of the staff working there.

  • While the interior and exterior are great to look at, I don't think you would spend a lot of time here. We did a nice walk through. Had we been hungry, they do have some areas to eat at inside  more »
  • The building, also known as Palacio de los Condes de Orizaba, is a lovely place. Has a front covered in charming tiles talavera de Puebla.

  • The food has always been good and the prices are fair. What I just don't like and doesn't work for me is the waiter service in the bars area; there are only a few waitresses in charge of tables and the bars all together. Even though the waitresses work as hard as they can and push themselves to cover all this area, it's not enough for taking all the orders and delivering the plates on the appropriate time.
  • Beautiful building that is also one of the many in Mexico City that is sinking. The entire place is on a lean but is well maintained and impressive. We were there for lunch and pleased to find they have English menus. Had the Swiss enchiladas and chicken tacos. Both were delicious and price was very reasonable. Highly recommended!
  • This review is for the chocolate counter. After biting into one of the chocolates I bought, I realized it was full of mold 🤢. Another truffle was super dry, so I would have to assume most of their chocolates are not fresh at all. 4 stars for the restaurant itself, which was great value in a beautiful space.
  • Top score for the beautiful historic setting Casa de los Azulejos. Inside there is a regular Sanborns restaurant with decent food and good prices. Waiters wear traditional clothes for which this place deserves extra kudos.
  • Beautiful building to see from the out- and inside. There are toilets inside. We had lunch at Sanborns, which was totally overpriced for Mexican standards. It is beautiful inside and that is what you are paying for. The food was mediocre
