The menu offered a very limited selection. The food was very bland. The atmosphere was stilted and the whole experience was poor value for money.

We were in Mexico City this past weekend for a wedding & were trying to find a good brunch spot. A local recommended the Maximo Bistrot and although there were no breakfast/brunch items on the menu, we were far from disappointed. The restaurant is only open on the 1st Sunday of each month (in town at the right time:) &... More

We had heard great things about Maximo, so showed up ready to be delighted. There were definitely some high points such as the great drinks and top quality ingredients, but ultimately the food and the service left us disappointed. We were seated outside at a table so dark we could hardly read the menu or see what we were eating... More

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!!
