Fodor's Review

When Judith van Beuren opened Fonda El Refugio in 1954, it was the first upscale restaurant in the city to celebrate humble Mexican culinary traditions, and it remains a true refuge amid the bustle of the Zona Rosa. Along with a varied regular menu of regional Mexican classics, there are both daily and seasonal specials; you might find huachinango a la veracruzana (red snapper bathed in a tomato sauce with capers and olives) or a rich manchamantel, one of Oaxaca's famed seven moles. Enjoy a café de olla (gently spiced coffee cooked in a clay pot and sweetened with brown sugar) after your meal.
