Always packed with regulars, this 17th-century former monastery is where locals take their out-of-town guests. There's nothing trendy here, just black-jacketed waiters carrying platters of regional favorites, such as Veracruz-style sea bass simmered with onions and tomatoes. The dining room, decked out in crisp linens, is lovely, but try to snag a table outside near one of the fountains.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 1 pm to 1 am, Sundays 1 to 10 pm.
