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.

One of the Top 5 Meals of My Life

This restaurant is simply decadent. I have eaten at some of the top restaurants in the world but this restaurant hands down is a winner. The menus are printed on a nice parchment paper that is in an envelope with a seal for you to take home as a gift. Each course was better and better! Even... read more

The food is amazing The chefs here take you through a divine mexican food experience, where sight, sensation, smells and of course taste, get involved.

I visited with my family and the staff was great. The food was well cooked and there was harmony between the dishes. The wine was good. It may have been a little overpriced compared to any of the other restaurants we visited but it was great anyways.

By far the best meal we had in Mexico City. Went for lunch as that was the only slot we could manage. So. Worth. It. Value: While not cheap by any means, we both thought it was an excellent value. There are plenty of times I'll leave an expensive or expensive-ish restaurant in New York or LA and think -... More

This is a one time experience but I'm not sure if I would return. Food is good as it should be, but I have been in better places in Mexico City and paid three times less. Make sure you plan ahead before going reservations are limited and credit card is needed.

We've been here before, but this time we didn't enjoyed it as the other ones. Portions are smaller but pricey. We had lots of veggies and just like 3 oz of Protein. I've been in many Author Cuisine Restaurants, and I believe Chef Olvera should reconsider portions and prices. We left the Restaurant hungry, and payed $250 ($4000 pesos) The... More

I got a bit scared before going to Pujol because some friends had called it molecular cuisine and I had a terrifying vision of "air croquettes'........instead the food was delicious and abundant. it felt like a gastronomic trip through the many and very varied and refined cuisines of Mexico. It was quite astounding actually. Service was very good (but we... More

If you are in Mexico City, take time to visit Pujol restaurant. The experience is amazing. Wonderful food paired for you with the proper wine. Definitely dishes out of this world. Nice atmosphere, you might want to call for a reservation to make sure you have your table available. Let the chef make his recommendations and explore the beautiful tastes

Overall this was a very good meal indeed, with some outstanding food, but some small slip ups means it doesn't quite get full marks. The room is quite dark when you first enter but each table is sufficiently lit and also well spaced - you certainly are not bothered by your neighbours. Service is quick and efficient, friendly also, but... More

After reading that 3 of the top 50 restaurants are in Mexico City, we had to try Pujol, ranked #16 in the world. We made reservations a month in advance on Open Table, which requires a credit card. If you are a no-show you get charged a small fee. Remember to call them the day of your reservation to confirm... More
