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.

Best restaurant in Mexico City (May 2015 Menu)

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.

Food is delicious, owned by the only Mexican chef who owns a Michellin Star, very gourmet, very different, exceptional mixture of taste and consistency. Recommend it throughly

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.

I could not leave Mexico City without visiting Pujol. One of the best lunches I had. They were able to accommodate my vegetarian needs and I enjoyed all the degustation menu. Loved the "Mole cooked for more than 200 days". It is a fusion cuisine but you will taste authentic Mexican flavors. I learned what the "chapulines" were and they... More

I know Mexico City quite well as I spend a substantial amount of time there on business. Pujol is one of the finest restaurant establishments I have been too. The décor is clean and classy to keep you focused on the food. Inventive and exquisite food offerings that will delight your palate. Book in advance, if possible at least with... More

The best place for trying gourmet Mexican food. If you've seen the Ratatouille movie, you'll get it. Pair everything with some nice wine and mezcal.

Really it surprises you positively. Ideal to reserve the private room because you have the opportunitie to share with the chef and its charm, making it a special experience. It makes the difference compare with the other area where the service is average. The food is quite good, however i think their precio are quite high, paricularly a decent wine

Inventive and exquisite. My wife and I splurge on a serious meal several times a year, and this was a great one. We loved the opportunity to have exotic Mexican ingredients (huitlacoche, powdered ants) cooked at the highest level. The criticisms you'll find in other reviews of the huitlacoche dish served with chicken livers are accurate though. Huitlacoche is a... More

My second visit to Pujol was a big disappointment, especially after amazing dinner some 12 months ago. Nothing was bad, everything was well prepared and nicely presented but the place lacked some charm or magic coming out of kitchen, it was just a perfectly executed good food but nothing special (save, maybe, for octopus salad). Difficult to say is that... More

I visited Pujol a couple of months for business dinner and we all had a great culinary experience. As some of you know Pujol is considered as one of the top 20 restaurants in the world and definitely top 5 in Mexico city. The concept is Mexican fusion food, which I consider to be really interesting and delicious, their wine... More
