Have visited this restaurant several times but not out of choice, friends have booked here. The first time I went I swore I would not go again as being a foodie I was very disappointed! I couldn't understand how a restaurant could over cook pasta so much! I complained to the waiter and the chef was... read more

The place was almost empty on a Thursday night and I believe that the roadwork on Masaryk may have something to do with it (it is a mess, and we are in October now). The menu has many french dishes, but I am not sure how 'french' these actually are after dining here for the first time. The housewines are... More

My experience at CB was the first time I have experienced outright dishonesty at a restaurant. After we were seated, we requested an wine list and the waiter (who later identified himself as "el captain") stated that there was not a list and we could look at what they have in the cellar. My friend ordered a particular bottle of... More

Lovely atmosphere but meat was cooked cold twice in a row - no apology from chef or manager - no discount from the bill either. Literally cut the steak in half twice and it was cold. Took 3 times to get it right. Mistakes are made - but if management or chef doesn't apologize or give discount - it's not... More

Was recommended to to this restaurant by a friend whom I was in Mexico City to visit. The decor is exquisite and the bar inviting with some interesting food arrangements on display. It was a mild evening when we went for dinner so we opted to sit outside in their garden terraza. The wine list was more than adequate with... More

The place is very nice and the service excellent. The problem is that as a fancy restaurant, the menu doesn't have many options, so if you don't love french cuisine, you will suffer a little bit.

Small french restaurant in the middle of Polanco. Great service, good wine selection and sea food is fresh and the chef is always willing to twick the menu for special requests...

A very good modern French restaurant with delicious seafood and modern french dishes. Very well located in the Masaryk Avenue (Polanco neighborhood), Mexico City's equivalente to NY's 5th Avenue.

We have been to the Central Central in Santa Fe which is very nice but a bit far if you don't live or work in Santa Fe. Recently tried the Central Brasserie located in Polanco. Just as nice but without the terrace, but warmer in terms of ambiance and very cozy, a bit darker though. more of a brasserie feeling... More

You will find typical french brasserie cuisine. The quality is quite Good, the wine selection not bad and the service is good. I love french food and as of lately french restaurants in Mexico City have been pushed away by magnificent new Modern Mexican Restaurants. Out of the traditional lifelong French cuisine restaurants, only Les Moustaches is left because Champs... More
