Can't recommend it enough! The food was great and offers delicacies from all over Mexico (including grasshoppers and ant larvae!) Our waiter was lovely and patient with our Spanish and the atmosphere was excellent.

We were excited to dine at Azul Historico as it had been recommended to us by friends who live in Mexico City. On arrival our first impression was mixed as the restaurant was beautiful but the greeting on arrival was far from welcoming. We were shown to our table and ordered drinks and read from the slightly pretentious but interesting menu. There seemed to be waiters running around and no sense of a system. When our main course arrived, the presentation was beautiful and the taste delicious. We waited a long time for plates to be cleared and any drinks orders to be taken. We decided to order dessert which eventually was bought over to us but instead of being placed on our table, it was placed on a tray a few feet away and the waiter then disappeared for about five minutes before returning and putting it on the table. It was odd and slightly chaotic. It took us many attempts to catch an eye for the bill at the end of the meal and when the waiter eventually returned to collect the cash, he counted it out at the table and then complained to us that in his opinion we had not left enough tip. We could not believe it! We have never experienced anything like it before and felt offended by his attitude, not least because we had left a good tip despite receiving poor service. So sadly we can't recommend this place as it was our only bad experience during our week in Mexico City and we found many other great places offering the winning combination of great food, ambiance and service.

Azul Historico Comida Mexicana, is well known to experienced travelers to Mexico City. In the heart of downtown you will find this excellent tradicionales cocina. Everything is excellent. They close at mid-day. We waited until 1:15 PM to be seated.

Everything was wonderful. I would highly recommend. We went in around 9 pm without a reservation. Had the venison app, the flower soup and the fish and plantain dish. 3 glasses of wine. Dessert was a chocolate cake and coffee, which my boyfriend said was some of the best he's ever had. They had great attention to detail, and had English menus. I would give the food 5 stars. Very flavorful, yet wasn't too rich and seemed light and healthy. Meal was around $80 usd with tip.

This is one of the most beautiful dinning rooms I've been in. It's open to the sky but shaded with trees. It's quite, peaceful and comfortable.

We tried a couple of different pre-colonial dishes. They were a bit salty for us, but still delicious. We ended up having three dishes of ground seeds that looked identical, but tasted completely different. Very worthwhile.

Still,
