A taste of Mexico, elevated above the heart of the Historic Center.
Set on top of the traditional publishing house and the Porua Bookstore, just a block away from the Mexico Zócalo, you find the lovely rooftop restaurant and bar called El Mayor. A great spot for mixing tasty Mexican food with fantastic views.
With location right by the archaeological zone of the Templo Mayor, the third floor terrace offers great and historically filled vistas over the Metropolitan Cathedral, the ruins, the city main square and the buildings of colonial and modern Mexico.
Historical in location, contemporary in design, the spacious wooden decked terrace is surrounded by vegetation and equipped with modern furniture. Seats are available both in the sun and under large awnings.
The kitchen at El Mayor offers classic Mexican food with a contemporary touch, ranging from quesadillas to salmon glazed with three chili peppers. From the rooftop bar you can order everything from cold beer and classic cocktails to premium spirits and lemonade.
Open during daytime, El Mayor rooftop is a fantastic spot for breakfast, lunch or just some sunny cocktails with a view. Expect great service and a lovely ambience.
