Nowhere in Paris have I eaten so rich and greatly achieved french food. I always claim that in a city like Mexico City is almost a sin to visit the same restaurant twice, but in this case, I'll come back over and over as long as they deign on giving me a very coveted reservation. The restaurant itself doesn't look... More

Amazing food and attentive waitstaff. We went for lunch, and this was hands down our best meal in Mexico City. Definitely worth the hype. For lunch we had the asparagus and the mushrooms to start (best grilled mushrooms I have ever had). Then we had the cavatelli (homemade) in pork Ragu and then we had roasted pork for our main...

Elegant but understated. A bit tough to get a reservation so book in advance. After 9pm is the best. Inside unless it´s very warm out. Great food. Very attentive staff. All the staff was polite and attentive. Delicious appetizers! Try the sea bass. A serious and delicious dish. The best!

We have been to Mexico City twice now and this place is a DO NOT MISS! We have dined for lunch only (with a giant siesta that followed each time!) The ceviche we have had both times and it is what dreams are made of:) This place is a foodies dream. We heard there were comparisons between this and Jaso... More

This is a popular neighborhood restaurant in the Roma neighborhood. It is a small café with indoor and outdoor seating. The food is excellent and I enjoyed a quinoa salad with peas and a beautiful filet of fish with a turnip foam/sauce and spinach. The combination of zapote, strawberry and mango sorbets was the perfect end to a dinner with... More

Mexico City has many bigger noisier restaurants, this is a small simple place with good food. We liked the quaint intimate feeling. Cream of mushroom soup was wonderful. Risotto was very good, the gnocchi was not so good. My husband enjoyed the wine from Baja California. We skipped desert.

Mexico City is full of restaurants and bars, however, its rare to find something this good! We had a wonderful 3 hour dinner, great wine and food. I really enjoyed the simple ambiance, was not over done or trying to hard. I like to be in clean environments. This restaurant is definitely a must if you are in MX City!!

We sampled many fine restaurants in Mexico City, but this one stood out. The crowd is definitely on the hipster side, but fun to watch. Our food was flavorful and beautifully presented. The truffled risotto was to die for!

Restaurant is in a mostly residential area. We walked about 15-20 minutes from the Cilpancingo Subway Station. Food was average,nothing exceptional. Prices seemed to be somewhat higher than other, similar places.The service was just OK. You may want to try it if your hotel is nearby. I would not recommend a special trip.

A few words? Abysmal service and just average food. The hype might have gone to their head, but at such price point, a minimum of service should be expected. Inattentive and dismissive waiters are simply not accepted. Some might be excused when the food is superlative but that is NOT the case here. All in all, a very average experience.
