El Sella

For over 70 years, surgeons, bankers and families have gathered here for a good time, to take a break and enjoy some Spanish cuisine. Three generations of tradition in its original establishment located near Mexico’s main hospital in the Doctores neighborhood, it stands out with its glass block windows, wooden chairs and bright white walls. The chamorro is a must.
