Undoubtedly one of the city's most palatable and recommendable restaurants for traditional Mexican food. El Cardenal has three locations, but this Calle de Palma one is undoubtedly the best. El Cardenal makes is own breads, tortillas, cocoa and cheese, the service is impecable and the wandering Spanish musicians lend the place a jovial and delicious tone. El Cardenal is located in a three storey turn of century colonial building covered in talavera tiles and dotted with amazing religious and local artwork from a variety of periods.
