The restaurant has great decor and the service is very friendly. We started with some tapas. The best, "solomillo con piquillos", the meat was tender and juicy. The "patatas bravas" were very flat, same as the pantomato. The octopus was a little bit over cooked and with tons of "pimenton". Finally, the fideua arrived. It was just okey. A little... More

Indeed the place is good enough and keeps you a nice taste even after some days but for sure after two weeks you'll forget the restaurant at all. There are not many things to remember of.

I ended up walking into Maja just by curiosity as I was walking in the Roma neighborhood, the food here is amazing, all the dishes me and my friends had were delicious, I think my favorite would be the gazpacho, suuuper fresh and tasty. While we waited for our main dishes we had an order of "pan tomate with prosciuto"... More

I enjoyed the experience, service was excellent, atmosphere smart casual, portions were good too. Wine was supreme! I would only suggest to get rid of the fat of the lamb's ribs, other than that, just keep improving, I will keep going!

I fully agree with kalimata. I can mention several dozen restaurants in Mexico City that are better, including a dozen or more Spanish. To start I hate Valet parking that I believe should be paid by the restaurant; tipping OK. Modern decor with cement floors. Waiters attentive but still and all we waited more than 30 minutes for a glass... More

I had no great expectations but it is a place to go for sure. Service is excellent, food is AMAZING! Decor of the place is cozy but yet cool and modern. They give you a small appetizer that is part of the menu with the intention you try something from the menu and to know it. Cool idea and clever... More

It makes it to the top 5 in the TA ratings but this restaurant is just barely OK. Nothing wrong with the food, it was bettere than OK, but the atmosphere was just dull and the place felt unloved with just 2 tables occupied. After reading reviews we expected something better.

I must confess that I expected more from a restaurant rated #2 on tripadvisor out of all the restaurants in one of the world's largest cities. The margaritas were excellent and the servers were attentive. They were out of the foie gras terrine, but produced an an acceptable pan seared foie gras. Rack of lamb was uninspired, presentation sadly lacking,... More

This posh restaurant in the quaint Roma neighborhood was a great Tripadvisor find. The service was spot on, anticipating our requests and gladly providing suggestions (as well as English menus, which was appreciated!) We started the meal with the foie gras, a wonderful tasting dish that was unfortunately a bit too small for the three of us to thoroughly enjoy.... More

We visited MC for two weeks in May 2013. We had plenty of time to see all the sites including the awesome ruins of Teotihuacan. We rented a fabulous apartment in Zona Rosa for half the price of the Hyatt or Four Seasons. Our only regret was that we discovered Maja too late. Of all the recommended foodie heavens in... More
