Perhaps I'm too "Americanized," but I expected to be "wowed" by Pujol after reading numerous reviews about its fabulousness! The food is interesting and high-end expensive for Mexico City, but the service fell flat in the end, which was disappointing. Our wait staff, while attentive in the beginning, disappeared after we got our desserts. We were never offered coffee, an... More

I was really looking forward to this,was thinking it was going to be along the lines of José Andrés's Bazaar in Beverly Hills,not even close.It was good traditional flavors presented in a modern way,but only presented,not tasting modern My favorites were the starter with signature smoked baby corn and surprisingly the kale is what stuck out the most to me(I'm...

The dishes are creative and the space is poetic. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I try the lunch menu and it's wonderful . The price is high in Mexico City but worth.

Excellent Mexican food prepared in a modern and inspiring style plus the impressive level of service is what makes this restaurant a must when visiting Mexico City. The price level is more than decent when taking into account what you receive in return. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the traditional mole which was served in a rather uninspiring... More

After a quite disappointing meal at Quintonil, we almost considered canceling Pujol. I'm happy we didn't! I would compare Pujol to some of the great restaurants in NY, SF or London, such as Robuchon. Every single dish is unforgettable and extremely delicious. One of the dishes - the brioche with cheese - was so good that we asked to repeat... More

This is one of the best restaurants in the world. The food is extremely innovative and excellent. It is sort of a riff on traditional Mexican food, but amazingly different. There are tacos, but they are filled with grilled lamb done to perfection and wonderful vegetables. There is grilled corn on the cob, but it is tiny, baby corn and... More

This was our first serious visit to Mexico city. Our foodie friend Michael Coon suggested we experience Pujol. It is in Palanco region, a nice section of Mexico City. The service was unequaled and the food memorable. More so it was an experience. They served us 11 courses, every one of which as a presentation onto its own. Each course... More

Supposed to be the best restaurant in MExico City (definitely one of the most expensive ones) i was very disappointed with their 9 course meal. Only small bites and nothing special at all. Rather eat at the street markets you get tastier food and a real mexican experience.
