Description: During colonial times la Hacienda de los Morales was located on the outskirts of Mexico City, but today it is within its confines, only a short distance from the exclusive hotels, museums and shops of Polanco. This stately mansion, a recipient of numerous awards including the 5 Diamond and the Dirona Awards, and the Executive Chef Alejandro Heredia Resendiz named Mexican Chef of the 20th Century by the Cullinary Academy of France, transports visitors to another era in a refined atmosphere where the hospitality and service make every moment a memorable one. In addition to the international menu with Mexican specialties, there are several Gastronomic Festivals each year with the participation of such outstanding establishments as I Chiostri di Firenze, Las Ventanas al Paraiso, The Lobster Festival Puerto Nuevo Style, and Il Milanese Curioso. This formal restaurant is open except Easter week and official Holidays. Gentlemen are required to wear a jacket and tie after 6:00 pm.

This is a magnificent building, beautifully furnished and landscaped. I wish someone would turn it into a museum and save the public who dine there such enormous disappointment. The wines were very overpriced. The "tenderloin" was a tough-loin. I managed to saw off a single bite, but left the remainder. The sauce on the beef was very nice, and I ate it as a bread dip. The dollop of mashed potato was just ok, but likely from powdered dried potatoes. The green beans seemed a long way from fresh; they were over-cooked and, I suspect, frozen. The raspberry mille-feuille was excellent. The coffee was weak and tepid. The meal was sorely over-priced. It was a very disappointing evening, like a cheap wine in a fancy bottle. Mexico city has many great restaurants, and the local food is so good. Skip this one.

Came here as a child so I wanted a chance to return as an adult with my own family. Was not sure what to expect with the meal but found it better than expected and, of course, service was impeccable. Beautiful location and gardens... an island of peace in the midst of a very busy area.

This restaurant seems like a throwback to the 50s or 60s when tableside service and live entertainment were a very desirable elements to fine dining. An example would be a Caesar salad that the waiter makes from scratch in a large wooden bowl and serves directly.

The food was a great fusion of traditional Mexican with some modern cuisine. Our waiter worked hard at the table side to prepare and present each dish beautifully or in the most appetizing way. He was very good with suggesting dishes that we would enjoy the most, and he did an excellent job of helping me select a good Mexican wine - something I wanted to try but with which I was completely unfamiliar.

We shared a few different appetizers, mixing seafood, fish, and duck. Our main courses were also a complete cross-section of different food types. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented.

Throughout our meal, a jazz quintet played classical and modified pop music to add a nostalgic but well appreciated element to the dinner.

Of significant credit to the restaurant: The restaurant is quite fancy, suggestive of elegant dinner clothes. We had just gotten off a flight and were looking pretty haggard, very underdressed and we did not have a reservation, but they treated us just as regally as if we had been a Hollywood couple dressed for a formal event.

Food: Delicious
Value: excellent.

I've been here twice for group functions. Each time I found the setting to be a real highlight--a bit of old Mexico amidst the bustle of he city. The food is good though this is a function space so don't expect world-class dining. The food was less Mexican than classic function fare with Mexican touches. It's better than average for a kitchen that has to put out a lot of meals.
