La Hosteria de Santo Domingo is one of the most popular restaurants in downtown. It is located in what was once part of the Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzmán, which is just a few steps away. The plaza is quite important in this area, however, the restaurant is more famous for its décor and food than for its history.

Parts of the building date from the 16th century and many doors and windows have been altered since its construction 500 years ago. Today the patio is covered and there are glass windows.

Specializing in colonial cuisine, the Hosteria de Santo Domingo will not disappoint. With very affordable prices and dishes for any time, don’t miss the opportunity to try the chiles en nogada which are normally served from July to September but the Hosteria offers them all year round.

The restaurant can be accessed from the Plaza de Santo Domingo and its portals, and is close to the Plaza de la  Concepción.
