Dress Code

We are coming to Mexico City on Thursday and want to go to Hacienda de los Morales and Sir Winston Churchill's. My boyfriend wants to wear a guayabera-type shirt, pants and loafers. Would that be alright or do you need jacket and tie (we're going for lunch, not dinner)

    Dress pants, jacket, tie, leather shoes for both.

      People dress up for fancy meals in Mexico. I mean, in general you wouldn't be turned away but he'll stick out less in a suit.

        I was in Mexico City recently and dined at Pujol for a midweek lunch and Dulce Patria for a Saturday dinner. Pujol was filled with a business lunch type crowd in suits and ties; but Dulce Patria, on a Saturday night, ran the gamut from hipsters to tourists in T-shirts and people dressed to the nines in high end designer fashion. The service at both was impeccable, and the food was absolutely amazing. Mexicans eat late, lunch starts around 2 and runs the entire afternoon. Dinner is usually a more casual affair - starting after 9p or so.
