Cafe Tacuba Mexico City Reviews
Feb 24, 2007
Cafe Tacuba, is one of the oldest and most historic restaurants in Mexico City. Very few institutions survived the Mexican Revolution at the beginning of the 20th century, but Cafe Tacuba is one of the few, proud restaurants to have a history dating back this far. Tile walls and marble floors, along with antique wooden furniture make this place a great place to hang out with friends and eat great food. They serve up such classics as Pozole (pork and chick-pea soup), and Carne a la TampiqueNa.
One of the best things about the place is their live musicians in the evenings. Some nights are mariachi night, and the band will go from table to table serenading the couples. Other nights are "tuna" nights (this is not a reference to the fish). Tunas are student bands who traditionally roamed the streets of Spain in centuries past. The tradition has made the leap to Mexico, where they are most famously represented in Guanajuato, with the lively tuna scene of roaming students serenading long into the night. Cafe Tacuba is one of the few places in Mexico City where you can come enjoy this tradition, and patrons are encouraged to join in the well-known melodies.
