Gastronomic Experience!

If what you want is to try something different, go to Maximo Bistrot! The food is amazing, you can go from a delicious risotto to a tuna carpaccio and every time will be a gastronomic surprise because the experience could be like that, the Chef makes 7-10 special plates and you'll try them all, but... read more

Big hype about restaurant, but not as impressed... Had to wait an hour to be seated. Fresh produce and good quality food, but was expecting more after several comments from foodies... Service was overwhelmed.

This restaurant unfortunately did not live up to our expectations. We did not mind the location, but much could be done in terms of adding comfort. However, food was the main issue. Our callo catarino with apple salad was unbalanced with lots of lemon and a strange sauce. Meat was underseasoned and the risotto of the day was a buttery... More

Thank you for a lovely meal on 23 May 2013. I was traveling solo in DF as a birthday gift to myself and wanted to see what the buzz was about, and so reserved a lunch spot. Though I don't mind being seated on the street, and didn't mind the corner, I did ask to be moved to the other... More

The restaurant is not in the nicest of street corners, the restaurant itself could do with a new floor - the floor of concrete tiles from the 50's does not do the restaurant justice - not chic. The food though was excellent in every way and will definitely go again.

Thank you for a wonderful dinner on 26 April 2013. My second trip to DF in 2 years and I booked ahead for Maximo bistro local. We were not disappointed. It was a stressful night for the staff, they were able to clearly communicate with us and continue a very professional service and again excellent, wonderfully surprising food. Would not... More

A lesson in averting disaster: After seeing a few reviews online before going, my expectations were already low; somebody wrote right here on Trip Advisor about "french meets spain" to which I could only shudder: horrible service meets oily food? In Mexico? Why? Still, we had a reservation and this place is apparently always packed so I soldiered on. After... More

Not so much local cuisine I guess. But WOW, how they tickle your taste buds. Everything feels like small French bistro and the menu is like a little trip to Spain. One of the army of servers helped us to translate the daily changing menu with a vast Mexican wine selection. Would come back any time. Worthwhile every pesos.
