This restaurant is in a quiet oasis hidden on a beautiful old hacienda style building with green gardens overlooked from the terrace. Located in the heart of San Angel is one of the best places to eat in the south of the city. Service is flawless. Dishes are cooked to perfection. The gorgeus chef is always supervising table by table.... More

The spot is beautiful, surrounded by gardens and trees. The architecture is magnificent. The chef is continually checking the tables and the desserts are out of this world. A must if you visit Mexico City. The area is beautiful. San Angel was not part of the city long time ago. Used to be a place for the weekends and now... More

We have been here many times and have always eaten very well. A bit on the expensive side but good value for money. Wine list could be more extensive. Make sure reserve in advance(fills easily) and ask for a table on the terrace overlooking the gardens.

One of the best french cuisine restaurants in south Mexico City. Superb location in old San Angel neighborhood. Excellent service. Wide menu and delicious deserts. Wine menu is excellent with emphasis on french wines.

The food, the ambiance, the service. We all tasted each others dishes and one was better than the other. From the uniquely upscale Mexican stuffed chilli's to the escargot and lamb, not to mention the desserts. One was better than the next. My friends are Mexican but I only speak English and I felt just as comfortable conversing in English.... More

Bistro 83 is OK. I was not that impressed with the food, especially at the relatively high prices. It's OK, you will not have a bad time. You probably will wonder why the prices on the menu are so high though.

Went here with some visiting family on the recommendation from a friend in Mexico City. The place is kind of hidden away inside the Plaza Grand a block off Plaza San Jacinto in the Centro de San Ángel ... so if you go on Saturday or Sunday you can check out the famous arts and crafts "(very upscale) flea" market...

Bistro 83 is set within a beautiful mansion tucked in a beautiful street in San Angel. I have been visiting this area for years since I used to live in the South of the DF and was truly "wowed" by this restaurant. We visited for dinner, sat on the terrace overlooking a beautiful garden. The food was spectacular: we tried... More
