Now that the restaurant is famous... Oscar Luna answers the phone and says "We cannot accommodate you on Sunday we already have two tables of 8." "Wait a minute," I said... "I haven't even told you at what time." Oh well you can come at 1:00 but not a group of 9. We are a small restaurant." "Well how about... More

Being a vegetarian I was a bit skeptical as to what I was going to eat. Was this a surprise! I had a wonderful meal at the fantastic restaurant. The only complaint I have is that it got nosier as the night progressed and was impossible to have a conversation.

They deserve the hype. Creative menu always changing with the best of the local market. Artfully prepared and presented. The flavors were great the offerings unique. My only complaint was the service was a bit rushed. Granted it was Saturday night about 8:30pm and the place was buzzing. Service could have been a little bit better, but willing to put... More

We met the Chef and he suggested we should not order from the menu instead he will send what he thought was his very best. it is important to mention that one of... More

Bistrots are our favorite type of restaurants. Went to eat there with my daughter a few days ago after hearing about the it being the bistrot to go to. Even reserved 1 week ahead of time. Menu looked interesting. A few plates caught our eyes and we were anxious to try them out. From appetizer to main dish to dessert,... More

I gave this place a second chance as the first time was a huge disappointment, second time was nothing different. The food is good/average and very expensive for the place. My pork belly needed to be more crunchy and the artichoke was undercook. We didn't order dessert or coffee and paid over fifty dls per person. Way to much for... More

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
