El Arroyo: "Enormous place!" Top 5 Page for this destination Mexico City Restaurant Tip by acemj

Mexico City Restaurants: 260 reviews and 230 photos


This restaurant is pretty well-known, which is good because it's a little out of the way, so you might have to ask a local exactly how to get here. The place used to be a bullring and it's absolutely enormous. There are multiple dining rooms and the place supposedly can seat 2500 diners!!! It's a great place for a party since the room we were in had a stage with a mariachi band and some interesting regional dancers.

I was here with my friend Adriana who comes here often with her family, so the waiters recognized her and we got excellent service.

Favorite Dish: We ordered Baracoa, which is an extremely tender chunk of meat that falls off the bone and melts in the mouth and enjoyed some tequila to go along with it. Everything was great.
