If you go to a gourmet restaurant like Pujol, you need to go there with an open mind. You should go there to try out something new and to be surprised. That is precisely what I am looking for: something new, something worth to remember. Of course not everybody will share one’s taste and preferences, but I was very pleased... More

It's hard to say I was disappointed in a meal that was so good. But this restaurant is one of the highest ranked in the world (by Pellegrino) and it wasn't even the best food I had in Mexico. Most of the dishes had a "thick" taste where individual ingredients couldn't be distinguished. One plate was simply two moles with... More

We'd heard from our friends that Pujol was a must-do while we were in Mexico City. There is nothing wrong with Pujol at all; we unfortunately found it over the top and not worth the money relative to the other great food available in Mexico City. Because it is a tasting menu, the courses are inventive but small (you're able... More

This restaurant was a recommendation of a friend. They serve a six corse degustation menu which was very well elaborated. The ambiance of the restaurant was very cosy. The down side was the service. Our waiter expected us to choose our plates before we ask for the bevarage. All the six plates came very fast. We spent just one hour... More

This would be our most expensive meal of our one week visit to Mexico, and I expected that. And I suspected that despite the popularity of the restaurant and the sterling reviews it has received, I would walk out of the establishment remembering the "experience" rather than the food itself. And that turned out to be the case. The restaurant... More

We had a fantastic evening, while it is difficult to get a reservation, it is not impossible; we only had to wait a week. The atmosphere is pleasant, the decoration simple but elegant with great attention to detail. (I fell in love with the lavender scented hand cream in the loo!) the service was impeccable and I loved the fact... More

In this intimate restaurant I had the pleasure to enjoy the very best of the Mexican cuisine. A delightful 6 course menu entertains you from the beginning to the end: smells, textures, colors, shapes, flavors. 10 Magna cum laude.

Amazing service, great food, strong presentation, good wine list, very competent sommelier, very strong 9 course meal and good tequila selection to finish. I was astonished by the delivery of excellent and exciting fusion composites. Really enjoyed it and would be back any time if back in Mexico City. Thank you, Pujol for this great experience!

I lived in France for 25 years so I know good cuisine. Therefore, I went to Pujol last night with high expectations. After all, it's ranked 20th best restaurant in the world, down from 17th last year. To be honest, it was a huge disappointment from the first weird dish which was basically shaved ice with a tasteless green liquid... More

We had a decadent 8-course meal at this restaurant and the food was imaginative and delicious. It is quite expensive, but for foodies it is worth the price. The hostess and wait staff were all friendly and spoke good English. Do not eat a big lunch if you are going to fine here, because the amount of food was substantial.
