The food here is absolutely fantastic. It is highly-elevated Mexican cuisine. There are several wonderful vegetarian items on the menu (squash, Jerusalem artichokes, etc.) The two of us ordered 4 small plates and 2 main plates. That, combined with the desserts, was more than enough food for 2 persons. One item to note is that the dessert menu has a... More

It took almost 30 minutes to receive cocktails and menus weren't delivered until prompted well after we were seated. The complimentary amuse bouche provided was an awkward table side presentation with CO2 charged squash puree that swallowed up the delicate presentation and almost splattered on us. The menu didn't inspire any appeal. The shrimp flauta is a raw dish, which... More

If you are coming to Mexico City you absolutely must try and get a reservation here. This place is a complete Oasis. It is kind of a pain to get to Polanco in the traffic, but well worth it when you arrive. The food was incredible. Inventive. Perfect. Beautiful. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgable and gave us just... More

We were at the end of our 23 night honeymoon and had planned our last night after several recommendations that this is the best restaurant in Mexico City. We were not disappointed! We had the tasting menu - ever single course looked and tasted superb. Exquisitely presented and tasting amazing too. The service was spot on - often with tasting... More

Our family had a great experience. We ordered the tasting menu and wow, all dishes were unique, complex and of exquisite flavors. Definitely fine dining with great service and food. Wonderful house mixed drinks with mezcal and great wine list. Their staff is extremely helpful and provide a nice atmosphere. Please go, you will be very pleased.

The restaurant is charming and the food was creative and delicious. With that said, we were disappointed to find ourselves seated in the more casual, front area, with all of the American tourists. It seemed a bit punitive as we were spending the same. The food and wine pairing were wonderful, but plan for a long night. Our meal was... More

For us it was great, we started with the appetizer from the chef, than we ordered 3 great appetizers. On the entrees, we were expecting great after the appetizers, but we weren't impressed. The mamey dessert: amazing, do not miss it.

We had the tasting menu with wine selection at 2985 pesos each. It was fantastic. The standout dishes were the 'flan de huatape' (flan/custard of mussels & sea urchin), the charred avocado & ant-eggs, and the confit duck with bitter almond purée. That's not to say that the others were anything other than superb. The wine matching was perfect with... More

Undesirable, the food is fair at best but the GM and staff are incompetent. My wife and I go to Mexico City two to three times per year and we have always had great dining experiences at other restaurants.

The degustation menu was delicious. Each dish is a pleasure to the senses. The sous chef even let us into the kitchen and we took pictures with the staff.
