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.

Fine Mexican Food with its rich tradition

When I booked my trip to Mexico city - I booked Pujol same time. I was there to eat in Pujol - more than anything else. And i absolutely loved it.

We love Pujol- still our favorite restaurant in Mexico and one of our favorites in the world. That said, this year was quite different than our first visit last year. The tasting menu started with five small bites brought out at once, then several individual courses, then several small bites for dessert. We could have been in an out in... More

I'm intending to review Pujol in the most objective way, that is not following the Cliché of liking it just because it's in the Top 50 Best Restaurants in the World and also the fact that it's Enrique Olveras' restaurant. On the other hand, every time I eat somewhere I naturally expect a direct relationship between price and quality. I... More

An amazing dining experience awaits you if you follow these 3 steps: 1. Make your reservation 2. Arrive on time 3. Pay approximately $85 USD per person Pujol makes it very easy to enjoy this dining experience. For those who do not speak Spanish, a bilingual server describes each dish as it is served and even points out how each... More

This was hands down the best meal I had in Mexico. Even if I didn't love everything that came out (apple soaked in mezcal yuck), i loved how each item was presented by the servers, and each one came out beautifully. The service from the beginning to the end was impeccable. Even while awaiting a table, we were served an... More

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
