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.

Good, not memorable

We had a nice time. Food was good (interesting ideas and flavors), service was good, decor was ok. Having visited several top 10 restaurants all over the world, I would not put this one in my personal top ten list.

We are foodies. We have eaten in great restaurants all over the world and here's what I know to be true: food is experiential. The atmosphere contributes to the totality of the meal. The food at Pujol is good. It's very good but from the minute we arrived at 6:28 (I know because the man at the door told me... More

Outstanding food and service. Please be aware there is a set menu with just a few options for each course. My favorites were the lamb tacos, the "hidden egg", and the mole. The mole was complex and amazing. I now realize that the mole I had before was subpar compared to this amazing dish at Pujol. The only problem we... More

After 10 days travelling around Mexico, I was expecting an amazing dinner to close my trip and I am afraid I was very disappointed. Service: the waiter didn't connect with us, I was expecting a better service matching the restaurant standards, more explanation about the dishes, we didn't feel that, it was very cold the contact, I was specially sad...

The food was delicious, innovative and well-prepared. The waitstaff was attentive and knowledgable. The restaurant was elegant and tasteful. I was a bit apprehensive about this restaurant because it was a set menu and I often have difficulty with set menus because I just don't eat huge quantities of food. This menu was perfect. That said, my husband does eat... More

Although looking forward to our dinner for weeks I was not impressed other than the first course which was magnificent but it was downhill from there. Nothing was horrible but other than that first course nothing really lived up to the hype (named as one of the 50 best restaurants in the world). Service was fabulous, what you would expect... More

The restaurant had a smart interior, albeit a bit on the dark side. Everyone was expected to have the degustation although there were choices for three of the courses. Overall the food was excellent, but not every dish hit the same highs - * We were not huge fans of the starters, which were called "street food": rolled cucumber with... More

Small, minimalist restaurant that serves haute cuisine New Mexican food. We went on a Friday and were not given an a la carte menu,, just the prix fixed 7 course meal which we'd planned to have anyway. It did not disappoint. I can't say the presentation was as unique as we've had in other similar "molecular gastronomic" restaurants elsewhere in... More
