I had been meaning to try for Pujol for a while so was excited to learn that a business colleague had made reservations here for lunch. The opening ¨snacks¨ were all delicious...my favorite was the sunchoke, but the baby corn on a spear seasoned with chiles and coffee was also excellent. For the second course, we had the tuna crudo....and... More

This tasting menu took us on a thoughtful and inventive journey of Mexican street food. It was truly an outstanding dining experience. Skillful and flavorful dishes, creatively presented and excellent, attentive service. My husband is a chef, and we dined here on his birthday on our first trip to DF. It was of course his #1 choice. They took great... More

If you're a lover of inventive cuisine and unusual flavors and textures, this is your dream restaurant in Mexico City. Chef Olvera takes traditional Mexican dishes and ingredients, then reimagines them. Each course is presented with a brief introduction from the server, highlighting the cultural significance of certain elements, followed by recommendations on how to best enjoy it. This is... More

Located in the hip Polanco, this small and intimate restaurant has a great ambiance. Very cool. There aren't many tables so service can be focused and attentive. The bilingual staff is excellent, my wife doesn't speak Spanish so that's a great help for her and me (I don't have to translate). The first course of "Street Snacks" was outstanding, the... More

The food at this restaurant is great and the only reason I haven't given them excellent is for other reasons. Firstly their online table booking is awful, not working a lot of the time and difficult to use. We reserved a table here for 6.30pm dinner and were late, because they forgot to mention that it is virtually impossible to... More

Pujol is a restaurant focused on experience around the molecular cuisine flavored, "somehow", with Mexican brushstrokes. No more, no less. The place, per se, is not known for being extremely elegant or flashy. He is sober. I could be compared with any minimalist office. The service is pragmatic. It is not extremely servile as in other Mexican restaurants; but it... More

Pujol is simply unique. There is no other like it in the world. The flavours you will find there are not really traditional mexican food. If you want to try mexican homemade food as prepared by a traditional mexican grandmother, this is not the place. This is a place to get to try mexican flavours and ingredients from a great... More

One of the most recognized restaurants by one of the most recognized chefs. The tasting menu is amazing. 10 different plates. Very posh, very "in". Mexican food as you never tryed it. Reservation is a must. Obviously you will pay an arm and a leg.

My husband and I try to eat restaurants on the top 50 list when we visit a city. Each of the restaurants we have been to on the list have been wonderful and Pujol was no exception - one of the best food experiences we have had from the food itself, to the atmosphere and service.
