I have been traveling to Mexico and DF for work and for fun since the year 1978 and evrytime I was at Df I meant to go but somehow always ended going elsewhere. Finally, after I got married I took my wife there and we were very impressed, not only by the food also by the service, where the waiters tend to your every detail without hovering or being intrusive. We never had to ask for more wine . . . somehow a hand always mysteriously appeared and the glasses were always filled.
I strongly recommend it!

Here are my tips for a fantastic evening. Let the waiter help you order food and drinks. Make sure you get the "soup" which is not a soup--it's an al dente pasta dish, quite small in size and served as an appetizer.
Colonial, elegant, nice, good atmosphere, great menu and styles of food, delicious food, excellent range of wine!
Ideal to formal or serious occasions. At night the piano, violin, (and mariachi) even make the stay a delight.
I have dined twice at the Hacienda De Los Morales and both times were extraordinary.
The food was perfect, the staff was beyond attentive and kind.
The building itself is an architectural wonder with colonial details, tall ceilings and domed brick ceilings. Fountains filled with flowers and torches light the drive. I believe the Hacienda was built in the 1500's and it was someone's mansion.
The food is world class as well as the service. A true foodie will not be disappointed. Be prepared to dress appropriately, and enjoy a real restaurant for a change.
Hacienda De Los Morales and her staff doesn't miss a beat. There is nothing to dislike about this restaurant.
This is a unique place in Mexico City; a sort of cross between a bar, cafe and bookshop, and the
art and culture vultures turn out here in force. It has a small venue where live music is played ...
