Mexican Linch at it's best!

Stopped here for lunch with some of our Mexican colleagues who had eaten here before. The waitress took the time to explain everything on offer and it didn't disappoint on any level.

Very authentic local food, and unique plus creative in it's offering like the grasshopper drinks. Like the prompt service but sometimes can be rushed especially when the crowd is there.

The restaurant has a great selection of mezcal and they also offer flights of mezcal! Just make sure you can get home after a night of drinking. The best drink has grasshoppers in it, give it a try.

Though this restaurant is located in Zona Rosa near where I stay on business trips, I'd come from a lot further away to eat there. I went late in the evening and the place was emptied out, which actually worked in my favor. The waitstaff was very attentive and genuinely polite. It started with a plate of crispy flour tortillas... More

As fans of Oaxacan foods, this is a regular place for us to go whenever we are in Mexico City. Located in zona rosa, now with a branch also in Polanco, the place serves authentic traditional fairs, which is next to impossible to find in US. The chorizo, the local cheese, the dark tangy moles transport us each time to... More

This is my fourth time back in four years - Barro Negro never disappoints. I can go on and on about what I ate, but eating is believing: from the pepino mescaltini with my corn turnovers filled with huiticoche to the filet with mole negro to the corn mousse and passion fruit sauce with coffee at the end, every thing...

Found this place by way of trip advisor. Decided to try it... Overall food was good. It wasn't amazing. But it's good. I had a tampiqueña steak which came with nopal, an enchilada and rice. The presentation was a little bare. The meat was tasty at first but dried out quickly. It's cooked in chunks which gave it inconsistent flavor.... More

Go there if you are looking for a proper place to have dinner with a group of colleagues or a business dinner. Its quiet, service is quick. Too quick, actually as waiters are pressed for time to turn the table or throw you out when it is close to closing time. Food is good, no doubt, and Mexican. But nothing... More

We are gringos living in Mexico. Hamburgo is one street south of Reforma. We stumbled upon Barro Negro for a semi late breakfast the last day of our recent trip to Mexico City. Two blocks from our hotel, Galeria Plaza. Bright colors inside and out but with a warm atmosphere. We ate outside. Excellent menu, food, service and prices. They... More
