Mexico City Airport (MEX)

Restaurants in Mexico City Airport (MEX)

For more than 50 years, La Mansión, which has more than a dozen locations in the nation’s capital, has satisfied Mexico City’s taste for beef on a grand scale.

A bistro in the Mexico City airport may come as a surprise, but this casual spot offers contemporary Mexican dishes—meatballs in chipotle sauce, red snapper with cumin—in addition to French classics and Mediterranean fare for sit-down meals or quick lunches.

Of the four popular Ávila Spanish-food restaurants in Mexico City, two are at the airport. Interiors suggest dining rooms in Spain’s medieval city of Ávila. Service is friendly, expert, and more formal (tablecloths and crystal) than one might expect.

With the vibrant colors, craft décor, and rustic dining chairs with woven rush seats here, you may feel as if you have stumbled into a colonial town of Mexico, albeit with a fun-house twist.

These are outposts of the popular Mexican natural food restaurant chain that originated in Acapulco and is noted for its use of the freshest ingredients and avoidance of preservatives and artificial flavoring.
