The whole food was delicious. The breads, starters, and the main courses. Try the cereal, olives, and fruits breads, they were really good. We ordered dishes to share. For starters, the crab and the duck with peppers were delicious. For main course, the fungi fish was amazing. For our taste, "Platos de hoy" are better than "Platos de Antes"! Service... More

I have made it a point when in Mexico City to check out the restaurants on the San Pellegrino's list of the top 50 in the world. Biko is one and Pujol is the other. I loved Biko for its unpretentious atmosphere and service, as well as the option to add wine pairings to the meal. I enjoyed each of... More

Nice, modern Spanish/Mexican restaurant, with a large and quite complex menu. Maybe that wasn't their evening or my expectations were too high but in spite of a very attractive menu, the imagination and the execution seemed to lack the sophistication of Pujol or Dulce Patria. Do not get me wrong, food is all good and perfectly done and some dishes... More

I went to Biko after being extremely disappointed by my dinner at Pujol and we were wonderfully surprised. The food is innovative and the flavours are unexpected yet harmonious. The service is perfect and there is little wait time between plates. We ordered the degustation menu and were thrilled by the diversity, richness and simplicity of the dishes. And yet... More

Beyond our expectations. The elegant and minimalist restaurant design introduce you to flavorful and well presented dishes. Nothing banal here, but yet true simple flavors of Mexico. Since we wanted to try out several dishes we were offered smaller portions, nouvelle cuisine fashion, which turned out to be just perfect to satisfy our appetite and curiosity. One of the best...

I can't rave enough about the lunch we had at BIKO - that rare combination of unique taste and textures while still making you feel like you've had a proper meal. With all the foodie hype thats doing the rounds, they definitely get my vote for one of the best in Mexico City. The menu needs a little bit of... More

Exceptional tasting/pairing -- they didn't have a menu in English so explanations were limited -- 1. amuse bouche of profiterole filled with cotija creme and shot of hot tomato soup 2. foie gras mouse with cinnamon smoked croutons (other exotic crunchy bits that made my eyes roll back in delight). 3. Mussels covered in chicharones snow with dots of red... More

In our recent trip to Mexico City, we made a reservation to eat at Biko. This has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. It is expensive, yes, but the food, service and atmosphere at the restaurant are worth the expense. We asked for the "Menú de Degustación" which is a sampler of 6 of their menu... More

The decor is simple, almost icy but when all the tables were taken, the restaurant glowed with colour and texture. Food offering was very good. Nothing overtly complicated and staff was very good in explaining what every dish had, but ultimately it comes to tasting your orders and when food arrived, I was not disappointed: exciting in a subtle and...
