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.

Great modern mexican food

This is a small restaurant, located in a trendy part of Mexico City. You have to make a reservation well in advance. The menu is fixed, 6 part-menu, with small portions in each one that allows to taste everything. Appetizers are 4-5, you have to taste the corn with chipotle mayonnaise. After that... read more

The place is really nice, it's located in a nice neighborhood near the tourist area. They have a fixed menu that changes from time to time. Everything I ate was wonderful, the flavor of the food really gets to you and the dishes are presented in a beautiful way. Best restaurant in Mexico City.

If u are not mexican and cannot eat real mexican food, go there. Although is a rip off and not as tasty as real mexican dishes prepared by locals. As easy as this: more thsn 500 years of mexican history and amazing cuisines vs nice looking but pretencious places. Just like this: taste is not amazing. However, they have good... More

Dinner here is a true culinary and anthropological experience! Elegant, amazing presentation and amazing combination of flavors. Even our local Mexican hosts said they had never had such dishes. Deserves the high ratings.

My husband and I made reservations for lunch during our weeklong vacation in Mexico City. We were not disappointed. Best parts were the standard dishes that you do not choose from, including fancy versions of street food and moles. By the main course, we were pretty stuffed and didn't eat another thing for the remainder of the day. The service... More

After hearing so much about chef Enrique Olvera, the experience at Pujol was disappointing. The food is creative, giving a twist to Mexican fare but stops short of being exciting as compared to some other creative restaurants that I have eaten at. The service needs to sharpen up for a restaurant that is supposedly the best in Mexico- the server... More

Modernist cuisine... This label usually send a shiver down my spine, for me it meant either really small dishes, extremely expensive or really weird stuff. Or a mixture of the three. So starting with the reservation, you can do it only through the web page or you can call and make an online one. This was made with 20 days... More

this is easily one of the 5 or 6 best restaurants in the DF. The food is outstanding; the service is exc; and the ambiance is delightful. It isn't cheap, but it is worth the experience.
