Language seemed not to be an issure, which, for a forrigner is verry reasuring, as we are greeted in most restaurants by a condesending waiter who can´t wait to get rid of us. In contrast, the staff were wonderful, patient and incredibly helpful. Their amicableness was made infinately better y the quality of the food, which was truly incredible. As... More

After a long journey there is nothing quite like a place that welcomes you with open arms and makes you feel totally at home. Agua & Sal is exactly like that Lovely staff, even though it was quiet were extremely welcoming and helpful. Nice to start a trip with a local feel, open conversation and some lovely food.

My personal favorite is the live oysters. Super fresh as all seasoned with lime and habanero sauce (optional) you should also try the ceviches and the delicious Marlin Tacos. This restaurant is not fine dining, but certainly has the perfect balance between price and quality. Service is personalized and expedite.

This place has amazing fresh food and good drink to-boot. We ordered the Ceviche 'sampler' and enjoyed the creative combinations. Good value, bright, cheery and low-key. Enjoy!!

We stayed in the Polanco area, and were having a rough time finding something that wasn't super expensive. Not that I'm opposed to fine dining, but that's not what we were in the mood for. After some digging around, we found this place and it sounded perfect. It was pretty quiet when we got there, around 8pm or so, just... More

Agua y Sal has a great vibe and an attentive staff. I was greeted at the door and sat down to a very unique menu with unexpectedly imaginative dishes. Even though I had read the menu before visiting the restaurant and I love ceviche, I was surprised by the dishes and their variety. The chef uses distinctive salts from all... More

This restaurant, located in the tourist trap part of town in Polanco, is surprisingly good. They have a wide variety of ceviches, from traditional, to sweet, to hot and spicy. If you go there with a group, I would recommend you order a few different ones from the menu and just share them. Just remember it is in Polanco, so... More

Excellent assortment of cerviches! Try them all and ask the waiter to bring each, so that tastes start light then progress spicier (like starting with light before heavy wine). More Western dishes for seafood guppies include: fish and chips OR seafood burger. Both entrees are huge and could be shared if not too hungry.
