Once again featured on the San Pellegrino list of the "World's 50 Finest Restaurants"—and moving up thirteen spots to number 36—Pujol is Chef Enrique Olvera's extraordinary personal approach to Mexican cuisine, famed for reinvention and ongoing perfectionism, where tradition and contemporary gastronomy live side by side as expressed in culinary techniques both ancient and modern. Using both imagination and delicacy, Olvera recombines Mexico's nearly infinite ingredients and flavors, demonstrating an extraordinary food culture's potential in obsessive detail.

Meal of a Lifetime!

I landed a coveted dinner reservation just a few days in advance (I'd advise reserving well in advance). I wasn't sure what to expect or whether a 6-course tasting menu would be too much food.

Not sure what to say really.... We are very nice people but we didn't have the best time at Pujol! Maybe it was because our booking was at 10.30pm... staff left mid way through our stay... by the time we finished there was just a skeleton staff. Our 'host' changed, the sommelier disappeared (he could have got more business from... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of stumbling upon this place while walking through Polanco. We had read the reviews and we were lucky to score a table right then and there for lunch service. You have the option of a four course tasting menu or seven. We chose four. It was delicious. Mexican cuisine with a twist. Very... More

Any discussion of the (insert geographic region here) best restaurant gets silly pretty quickly. Has the reviewer eaten at every restaurant in the region? Are they qualified to judge "best"? I'll simply say that Pujol served one of the great meals I've eaten. This was the second time dining at Pujol, and my expectations were higher. Having experienced Chef Olvera's... More

Amazing degustation menu with Mexican innovative dishes that have the traditional taste with a hip twist. A bit pricey but worth for the taste and amount. Great selection of mezcal as well

Mind you, I like stark. It's about the food, is what the black walls and simple furnishings say. The music with insistent rhythm was annoying; gave one a sense of vague unease. But otherwise, this was presentation, service and many small courses par excellence. As in all such elite establishments, it's the fine art of the cuisine - here Mexican... More

They do a set 7 courses lunch for around £45 (but you could go for a smaller version) which is just exquisite. It covers a good selection of Mexican dishes, all fresh and beautifully presented. There is a very good wine list. The service is impeccable. The deco of the room is a bit boring and acoustic is terrible, but... More

During our week in Mexico City, my adult daughter and I were delighted to be able to have a four-course lunch at Pujol, as we were unable to secure dinner reservations. We were greeted warmly by the staff and seated at a banquette table in this dark-walled, understated and quite elegant dining room. Our service was nothing short of superb... More

Deserves Michelin stars. Innovative interesting, brilliant, surprising. Hard to get reservation. Try their boutique mescals. If you eat at one place in Mexico City go here.

A small gourmet dining venue with an eclectic tasting menu. I wouldn't suggest it for a large group and book in advance as it is small. The flavor s and tastes are fantastic as is the service. Located in the tony area of Polanco. Caters to a high end crowd as expensive but compared to compared to comparable US venues... More
