Top 10 List

Restaurants, Rooftops & Tours

Our Favorite Restaurants

  1. Aperi Ask for a courtyard table, and try the 8 course tasting menu w/wine $70 US p/person.
  2. The Restaurant Lovely courtyard dining. Food is average, but the ambience is wonderful.
  3. La Parada Peruvian food. Ask for a courtyard table. Order the ceviche & pisco sours.
  4. Jacinto 1930 The best ‘elevated’ Mexican food, casual, no view. Recommended for lunch.
  5. Bovine Brasserie Lovely bar and dining room, small, nice outside open kitchen, no view
  6. La Mezcalleria
  7. Marsala

Our Favorite Rooftop Terraces

  1. Antonia (sunset happy hour, have a beer and the crab tacos)
  2. Luna / Rosewood Hotel (afternoon/sunset drinks or lunch) beautiful view, not a bad table
  3. Atrio (lunch or dinner) Most dramatic view, sit at front along rail
  4. Quince (drinks or lunch) – get there early – noon, food is average but view is worth it, younger party crowd, especially at night
  5. Casa 1800 hotel (sunset drinks – be there by 6 pm to get a good table) expansive view, sit outdoors along rail, older crowd
  6. Azotea (afternoon drink, good jicama shrimp taco) not much of a view

Skip these:

  • Nomada (zero ambience, no view, very average bistro type fare – small portions but well priced)
  • La Posadita (elevated tex mex at best, small, only 1 great view table, excellent  Tamarind Margarita
  • Don Felix Tacos (now 100% Vegan, 6 tables, boring, okay margs)
  • Baja Fish Tacos (good value, good tacos, but hole in the wall and too far out of the way $5 lunch)
  • Hanks – Typical American
