We loved this place for several reasons: 1. It is extremely well run and all the staffs are professional and speak English. The standard of service is high here, on the same level with some Michelin star rated restaurant in US and Europe. 2. The dark interior deco is very comforting. Luxury and understated. 3. Now the foods: The tasting... More

Went here for dinner, had the BEST mole I have ever had and probably will ever have. Portions are tiny but it is a tasting menu, so it makes sense. I still crave the tiny elotito asado with chili. Well worth the visit, would definitely visit again.

If you're used to eating Mexican food, you will be disappointed. When you're at a restaurant rated number 20 in the world, you hope to get some interesting new flavors. It doesn't do it for me to then just get high quality ingredients, but the same ingredients you get on any street corner. Coriander, chili and lime is just not... More

Pujol is for sure the best restaurant I have ever been in Mexico and for sure one of the best in the world. The setting is elegant and warm, service is perfect and food is just breathtaking. I recommend to follow the suggest of the chef and have a taste menu with different wine for every dish Absolutely fantastic.

Chef Olvera is considered one of the best in the world. It used to be ranked on the top 30. Sadly he is now more concentrated in opening his restaurant in New York and maintains other small restaurants that "live out of his fame", that his crown jewel has suffered his lack of attention. If your visit is the first... More

Pujol by far is one of the better dining experiences you will have in Mexico City. Master Artist Chef Enrique Olvera is deserved of having one of the best restaurants in the world. Nominated often and winning many awards. Beside the incredible poetic presentation and taste, the service at this restaurant is not to be missed. Was raining and my... More

You want to taste the best food in Mexico City? Well this is the place. The owner of this place is the best chef in Mexico. A true reinvention of Mexican food. Here mixed technology (molecular cuisine) with traditional flavors. They have an excellent wine. The service is excellent. Try the desserts, extraordinary.

My husband and I have had tasting menus all over the world and we were really looking forward to visiting Pujol this past weekend -- what a let down! We actually left the restaurant three courses in, something that we have never ever done in our lives -- courses four (sorbet) and five, dessert were simply not worth the effort.... More

The service was very friendly and professional. In addition to a very nice wine list, they offered a wonderful selection of Tequila and Mezcal. Each dish was authentic, inventive, and delicious. It simply could not have been better.
