Hostería de Santo Domingo Review

This genteel institution near downtown's Plaza Santo Domingo has been serving colonial dishes in a delightful town house since the late 19th century. Feast on oysters in cocktail sauce, stuffed cactus paddles, hot pepper soup, and the house specialty, chiles en nogada (stuffed poblano chili peppers bathed in creamy walnut sauce). This is a great place for a boozy lunch, with options ranging from wine to whiskies to tequilas. The place is open for breakfast and is always full at lunch; it closes at 10 pm.

    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.
