Fodor's Review

This genteel institution near downtown's Plaza Santo Domingo has been serving colonial dishes in a delightful town house since 1860, making it one of the oldest restaurants in the city. Feast on shrimp-stuffed fish, house-made chorizo, hearty puchero stew (of pork, chicken, chickpeas, and corn), and the house specialty, chiles en nogada (stuffed poblano chilies bathed in a creamy walnut sauce). This is a great place for a boozy lunch, with options ranging from wine to whiskies to tequilas and mezcals. The place is open for breakfast and is always full at lunch, with live music from 3 to 10:30.

The Perennial Favorite for traditional fare

In their season, establishments claiming to offer traditional fare come and go. We recommend La Hosteria de Santo Domingo for consistent traditional quality. Giant beets in the produce section prompted me to write tonight. We are trying to recreate the delicious pickled beet salad on offer at Hosteria. Most of the ancient gourmand delicacies they serve cannot be reproduced. In the distrito historico with other antique establishments like Cafe Tacuba,

Hosteria is legendary, serves excellent traditional dishes and offers a classic atmosphere with piano and voice virtuoso most evenings. If you appreciate "Old Mexico" don't miss this charming little restaurant.

A quiet institution

We went there for lunch and it was rather quiet. Very good, old-style service, good food and excellent margaritas.
